Peanut Butter Snowmen Cookies

With the appearance of snowmen but the crisp taste of peanut butter cookies, these playful treats will fly off the plate. It is no secret that I have a sweet tooth. But as much as I love eating anything sweet, I found my favorite part of this recipe was the decorating! And I’m a fan of peanut butter cookies, so believe me when I say that I enjoyed the eating as well. I just thought it was great fun decorating each snowman a different way. Starting with a blank canvas of white chocolate and assigning them a character by dressing them in a scarf or earmuffs; giving them pretzel arms or a beret. Honestly, it’s a pretty good day when your hardest decisions is to button or not to button.

These seriously cute treats are a great option if you want to make a snowman and there’s not enough snow yet. (Which is not the case where I live. As I’m typing, every single tree is white, there’s 8 inches of snow on the ground, and it’s snowing steadily with no sign of stopping.) Or if you want to play dress up with your food. It sounds juvenile, and it is, but I swear that it’s so much fun!

Ingredients
 20 Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies
 3 cups White Chocolate
 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
 Mini Chocolate Chips (for eyes)
 20 Orange Mini M&M's (halved)
 Colored Mini M&M's
 1 Tube Black Decorating Gel
 Licorice (for scarves)
 Thin Pretzel Sticks

Coat with Chocolate
1

Melt the white chocolate and coconut oil together. Set the cookies on a wire cooling rack and spoon the melted white chocolate on top. Tap the excess chocolate off the cookies until a smooth surface is formed.

Decorate
2

While the chocolate is still tacky, place the two mini chocolate chips to create eyes and set a halved M&M at an angle for the nose. If you want to give your snowman ear muffs, place the M&Ms in the white chocolate before it sets. Once the chocolate is firm, take the black gel and draw the band on top of the head that connects the two ear muffs together. Still using the black gel, add two dots for eyes and, if desired, a button mouth. Depending on your mood, you can add pretzel stick arms, or a Reese's peanut butter top hat (miniature cut in half), or even a beret! You are only limited by your imagination and the ingredients at your disposal.
