Back in 2013, I was going through my local Stop and Shop Weekly Ad for all specials and coupons. It was then that I found a recipe for a unique and cute cookie that I thought my girls would like to try. The recipe was called Melting Snowmen. I cut the recipe out and we made them around Christmas time that year.
That was over 4 years ago and still this recipe is one of my families favorites.
Still my girls had so much fun decorating them then with us. Therefore, this recipe has now become a favorite family cookie making experience here during the winter months—NOT just Christmas time! See these are perfect as a Christmas time cookie, but also beyond. I mean winter time and snowmen go hand-in-hand.
I, for one, love this one during a snowstorm. Why? Because instead of playing out in the freezing cold snow to make a snowman, we can make our very own, melting snowmen indoors. Staying warm, making family memories and enjoying some yummy cookies indoors, too. Win-win!!
But again the melting snowmen were a huge hit in 2013, especially since the girls first love of snowmen with Frozen’s snowman Olaf. They still sing along with Olaf when he sings about summer and ironically hasn’t a clue about its effects, like melting!
So, enjoy some photos first from our original melting snowmen cookie decorating night from 2013. Still can’t believe how much my girls have grown since that first time out! And hope you can make these to celebrate your next winter, family snow day, as well.
By the way in more recent times though, it came to my attention that my very good blogging friend, Tamara also loves to make these cookies. So, as per her request I updated this original article to share not only my family’s love of Melting Snowmen, but my blogging bestie’s love of melting snowmen, too! Plus, we just had two back-to-back snow days here after living through the recent bomb cyclone storm at the end of last week. Therefore, what better time than now to re-visit this melting snowman cookie recipe.Looking for a fun snowman decorating cookie to make with your family. Check out this recipe.Click To Tweet
