  • 1 package Betty Crocker’s Sugar Cookie Mix
  • 10 to 12 large marshmallows
  • Black decorating gel
  • Your favorite white cookie icing (or use my recipe below!)
  • Wilton decorating tips (I used a #16 star tip from Wilton)


Servings 12
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 35mins


Step 1

Mix the cookie mix (does that sound weird to anyone else?) together, then take a small chunk (about the size of a golf ball) and flatten to about 1/4″-1/2″ depending on how thick you like your cookies. Remember, they are supposed to be melted snowmen so the more irregular the shapes, the better!

Bake the cookies according to the package directions. Pull them out when they’re done and let them cool on a rack. When they are cool, ice the cookies with the back of a spoon and let some of the icing drip over the edge for that melting effect!

Spray a microwave safe plate with cooking spray and put the marshmallows on it. Cook on high for approx 20 seconds. Watch the marshmallows carefully though, you don’t want to let them get too fluffy! Spray your hand with the cooking spray (Great tip!) and pull the marshmallows carefully off the plate and set them on the frosted cookies.

Some of my marshmallows fell over, but I just left them that way! It gives my cookies character. HA!

Start decorating! I found it easier to do the arms and faces first, then add the rest of the details.
