Bake Up Whimsical Winter Mickey Snowman Cookies

Halloween is over and many stores have already moved onto Christmas. When it comes to baking, we are right there with them. We love making cookies, candies and other delicious holiday treats! We found this adorable Mickey Snowman Cookie on Disney Family and can’t wait to try it out this year.

1: Working on a flour-dusted piece of wax paper, roll out the dough 3/8 inch thick. Use the cookie cutters to cut out an equal number of larger and smaller circles.

2: Assemble each snowman cookie by using the smaller cutter to cut a curved notch in the top of a larger circle, as shown. Then moisten the cut edge with a bit of water. Fit the smaller circle into the notch and gently press the dough together at the seam to help it stick together.

3: Use a spatula to transfer the assembled snowmen to a baking sheet and bake the cookies according to the recipe directions. Allow the baked cookies to cool briefly on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

4: Working with one cookie at a time, spread white cookie icing on each and gently press currant eyes, a candy nose, a chocolate chip grin, and candy buttons in place before the frosting sets. Set the cookies aside for a few hours to let the icing harden.

5: Melt a handful of cocoa candy melts according to the package directions. Again working with one cookie at a time, dip the top of each snowman’s head into the melted candy and then set it on a sheet of wax paper. For each ear, place two chocolate candies back-to-back and gently press them into the melted candy at the top of the head, as shown. As the candy melts re-harden, the mint ears will stick in place.

6: Finally, cut a long scarf-length strip from the red fruit snack and fringe the ends. Wrap the scarf around the snowman’s neck, crossing one end over the other to hold it in place.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
