First, I want to share a bit about the 12 Days of Cookies event!

Welcome to the 12 Days of Cookies, hosted by Family Around the Table and Cooking With Carlee.  We will be filling the season with all kinds of delicious cookies.  Be sure to check out some of the recipes below or you can follow along on Facebook or Twitter by searching #ChristmasCookies.  We also have a 12 Days of Cookies Pinterest board where you can see all of the goodness!  May your holidays be sweet!

Melting Snowmen use a basic chocolate cookie and dress it up a bit!

Frost the cookies with white chocolate. Add mini peanut butter cup pieces for the hat, mini chocolate bits for eyes and orange sprinkles for a carrot nose. Easy, right?

Here is a recipe for the cookie. I’d love to see your version of a melted snowman!
