Melting Snowman Photo Tutorial

I found the loveliest and  most creative idea at World Market the other day, and I think it is a very cute idea to make these cookies with the kids, I think they will have fun and enjoy a delicious and sweet treat!!

If you are not an expert cookie decorator don't worry!! I promise, these cookies anybody can put together. 

You will need:

*   Any available round cookie (preferably 3.5in) 
Here is a very good recipe: Vanilla Cookies
*  Royal Icing medium-fluid consistency
*  Marshmallows
*  Pretzels
*  Mini chocolate chips or peppercorn (Don't forget to advise the kids that is pepper!) 
*  Orange tic-tacs
*  Dot candies or mini m&m's
* Sweet & Sour strings
*  Scissors

Instructions:

1)  Prepare your icing to the right consistency, it has to be fluid, but not so watery,the kind of consistency of sour cream. 

2)  Cover the cookie with the icing and then cover the marshmallow with the icing too. 




3)  Place the marshmallow over the cookie as in the picture.




4)  Cut some pieces of the pretzel to use as arms.

5) Decorate the cookie with the dots as buttons, the tic-tac as nose, and cut the sweet&sour strings length wise to make the scarf, I LOVE the scarf!!! It looks like I spent a lot of time knitting it right??










That is all you have to do!! I hope you are enjoying this time with your loved ones!!!!!! ;D
