Home Is Where My Story Begins

I’m Melting….

I saw these cookies in Blogland recently and knew I had to make them. Sadly, I have no idea which blog the idea came from.

I made plain round sugar cookies. If you don’t bake often, I’m sure those slice and bake cookies would be fine too. There is nothing better than homemade sugar cookies. If you need a great recipe, click here for my favorite sugar cookies.

The thing I loved best about these melting snowmen is that they are supposed to look melty and messy. Messy is perfect for my kids.

After adding some sloppy frosting, it was time for marshmallows. We put some marshmallows on a plate and microwaved them for about 50 seconds. When they were all puffy and smooshy, we sprayed a little Pam Cooking Spray on our fingers and plunked the marshmallows onto the cookies. The Halloween sprinkles came in handy and became eyes, buttons, and a nose.

Super cute and super easy! It’s so nice to make cookies that I’m not stressing about decorating perfectly. Quick, easy, cute, and kid friendly… can’t ask for much more than that!

Check out these parties I like to link up to.

Happy baking!

    How cute! Those are perfect for Texas, because we don't get much (ie any) snow here. And the few times we have since I have lived her, that is exactly what a snow man would look like…if you were able to get up enough snow to make a snowman. Our weather goes from one extreme to the other in a 24-48 hour period.

    Thanks for sharing! I may make those for my neice and newphews for our holiday party this year.
