Melted Snowman Sugar Cookies

This is such a cute idea for Holiday class parties at school. The kids go crazy over these. I have even had cookie decorating stations set up where the kids can create their own cookies by looking at examples. It’s so fun to watch what they come up with. This idea was originally created by The Decorated Cookie. She is always coming up with adorable treat ideas.

  • 1 16.5 ounce roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 12 marshmallows
  • 1 pouch each Betty Crocker™ Cookie Icing in white, red, and black
  • 2 edible markers black and orange


  • Place 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ sugar cookie dough, 1 egg yolk, and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  • Scoop 2-tablespoon-size (12) balls of cookie dough onto cookie sheets covered with silicone baking mats or cooking parchment paper. Refrigerate dough balls 15 minutes. Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Bake chilled cookies 12 to 14 minutes or until light brown.
  • Let cool completely before decorating.
  • Draw eyes and a mouth on the marshmallows using the black edible marker. Then draw the nose using the orange edible marker. Set aside.
  • On cooled cookies, draw a “snow" using the white cookie icing. TIP: Draw the outline of the puddle, then go back and fill in the shape.
  • While the icing is still wet, immediately place a marshmallow to one side of the cookie
  • Then make the arms and buttons with the black cookie icing and the scarf with the red cookie icing.

You can change out the colors using red and green for the scarves. You can also use coloring chocolate chips or sprinkles for the buttons. Let the kids get creative!
