Melting Snowman Red Velvet Cookies for Christmas!

Melting Snowman Red Velvet Cookies for Christmas!

My gripe with adorable Christmas cookies is that they never taste good!  So I sought to make adorable snowmen that were actually delicious!

INGREDIENTS:
1 Box red velvet cupcake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
cream cheese frosting (homemade recipe on blog, or buy pre-made)
black and red icing
Marshmallows
Rollos or reeces bells for hats (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Combine one  the box of Duncan Hines Red Velvet cake mix, eggs and and vegetable oil. Whisk.
  • Form teaspoon size balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet or baking pan about one inch apart. Slightly pat down the top of each ball with the backside of a spoon or spatula.
  • Cook for 8 minutes. Remove and let cool completely
  • frost with cream cheese frosting and stick a marshmallow into the frosting.  Decorate with colored icing to create a scarf, buttons, arms, eyes and nose.
  • frost the top of the marshmallow and add the rolo or reeces bell (if desired)

I only did a few with the hats — mostly because I was really going for delicious on this one and I thought the hat was candy overkill.  But it’s a matter of preference – if your guests have the sweetest of tooths put the hats on!

I also made some smiling or some sad they were melting…

but they were all scrrrrrrumptious!
