    Love these cookies - been making them for years. I also make Santas by dipping bottom half of cookie in white coating for beard (let dry) then coat top 1/3 in white coating (leave middle plain for face) while still wet sprinkle with red sugar for hat, leaving a little white around face for "fur" Add 1/4 mini marshmallow for pompom. Use mini choc. chips for eyes and cinn. red hot for nose attached with a dab of white coating. These may take awhile, but so does decorating other Christmas cookies, that's part of the fun of the season. (I also make ghosts for Halloween)

    Absolutely adorable....Although messy and somewhat time consuming if you let your children help I have only found ONE issue...Attaching the "arms" to the snowmen tried when we dipped them then tried attaching with left over melted choc....Would make it again!

    Great quick cookie! (My daughter loves Nutter Butters!) At Christmas time especially, let's be kind and forego the name-calling flynnkl. Mandreyo-try marzipan or fondant if you want to go the extra mile to make hats. Attach with some frosting.
