These candy-coated cookies are fun to make, and to serve—plus, no rolling pins required!

Updated Sep 5, 2020

Ingredients

  • 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 package (1 lb) vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)
  • Black confetti candy sprinkles
  • Orange candy sprinkles
  • Betty Crocker™ Decorating Cookie Icing chocolate icing
  • Betty Crocker™ Decorating Decors snowflakes

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, stir together cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms.
  • 2
    Roll half the dough into walnut-size balls, and then flatten slightly on a parchment-lined or ungreased cookie sheet. Roll remaining dough into marble-size balls, and place on cookie sheet; do not flatten these.
  • 3
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are lightly golden brown. Cool about 5 minutes or until cookies are firm enough to be transferred to cooling rack. Cool completely before frosting.
  • 4
    In large microwavable bowl, microwave candy coating at 30-second intervals until it can be stirred smooth. Cover work surface with waxed or parchment paper.
  • 5
    Place a dot of melted coating on bottom of a small cookie and place it toward one edge of a larger cookie. Spoon coating over entire cookie, allowing some to spill over edge of bottom cookie.
  • 6
    Place two black confetti pieces on small cookie for eyes, and an orange candy sprinkle in center for a carrot nose. Place three black confetti sprinkle “buttons” on the bottom cookie. Alternatively, you can decorate one large cookie in the same manner, to represent a completely melted snowman.
  • 7
    Use the cookie icing to draw on arms. Sprinkle with snowflakes; allow to dry completely.
  • 8
    Store cookies in airtight container.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you can’t find black confetti sprinkles, use mini chocolate chips turned upside down for snowman eyes and buttons.
  • tip 2
    If you don’t have a microwave, the candy coating can be melted in a saucepan over low heat on the stovetop.
  • tip 3
    For varied degrees of melted snowmen, decorate single large cookies for a completely melted snowman appearance, or stack them two or three cookies high for a less melted appearance.
