Thank Family Christian for this Graphic

Snowman Cookies


  Snowman Cookies We have been snowing for the past few days here in the Colorado mountains. It is a beautiful sight. The only down fall to this white falling from the sky is the bitter cold. We have not been spending much time outside recently which has given us more time for indoor fun. Recently I was able to make some fun Snowman Cookies with my daughter!   Ingredients 1 Package Oreo Cookies ½ lb. Almond Bark or Candy coating ¼ cup Regular Chocolate Chips ¼ cup Mini Chocolate Chips ¼ cup Candy Corn Instructions Melt the Almond bark in the microwave in a small bowl.

Keeping the fork tines level, gently tap the handle of the fork on the rim of the bowl. Use a straight up and down motion so the cookie doesn’t slide off of the fork. This will … [Read more...]
