Wow guests with these adorable melting snowmen cookies that only look complicated to make.

Chocolaty Melting Snowmen

Use any chocolate cookie that’s at least 1/4-inch thick to make these cute snowmen.

Makes: 20

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes

20 favorite chocolate cookies

5 bite-size chocolate-covered peanut butter cups

10 mini chocolate-covered peanut butter cups

10 marshmallows

1/2 pound (more if needed) vanilla-flavored candy coating, coarsely chopped, melted

Orange and black sprinkles

Set the chocolate cookies on tray or baking sheet. Cut the bit-size peanut butter cups in half lengthwise. Slice off a wide end of each for the brim of the hat. Cut the mini peanut butter cups in half lengthwise.

Cut marshmallows in half. Place one marshmallow half, cut side down, not quite in the center of the cookie. Spoon melted chocolate over the marshmallow so it oozes off and onto the cookie.

Place a wide piece of peanut butter cup for the hat brim. Add one half piece of the mini peanut butter cup for the top part of hat. Add black sprinkle for eyes and an orange sprinkle for the nose.
