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.
We can’t wait to try these whimsical winter Mickey snowman during our holiday baking this year. Will you be joining us?
