Snowman Cookies



We have been busy enjoying the holidays and so I haven’t been blogging much. I wanted to share these cookies the boys and I have been making since its still snowman time and these aren’t just for the holidays. We made them for Ethan’s kindergarten class and on Christmas eve and I plan to make them at least one more time soon. They were very easy:

  • I cut orange sliced candies into carrot noses ahead of time. I first cut them so that they were 1/2 the width and then into little triangles. I used a kitchen scissors and as I cut them I dropped the “carrots” into a little dish of plain sugar to coat the sticky sides.
  • I frosted Pillsbury break apart cookies with canned frosting (in this case homemade isn’t so important).
  • The boys added on the M&M eyes, noses and mini chip mouths.
  • I made sure they wiped their frosting fingers on paper towels instead of licking them since we made the cookies to share.
  • I gave the boys little bowls of non-brown M&Ms to eat while they decorated and they also made some non-snowman cookies that they ate while working. They did a great job and the cookies looked really cute. Since our kids love frosting and don’t actually care much for cake I think we will do frosted birthday cookies in the future since these came out so well and were super easy.

    Wow, these are so adorable!! I “accidentally” came across your website when I was looking to make a platform bed for my 5yr.old daughter. I spent a lot of time over the weekend looking for cute, yet easy recipes for school birthday treats, not finding anything that interested us and gave up. I am so happy I came across your web page, my daughter needed an easy treat for her five and a half birthday treat at school (her birthday is in July, so the teacher celebrates the half birthdays for them). My daughter really wanted cupcakes, but I figured that may be a bit much during a school night and hard for her on the bus – we will be making these tomorrow and definitely trying the cute pig cupcakes!! Your website is a fresh breath of air during a time period where parents are so busy, it’s hard to remember how simple life use to be. Thanks for all the pics and great ideas, we will definitely have you bookmarked!!
