These cookies ‘n cream snowman pops will cheer up even the snowiest day! This post was sponsored by Betty Crocker. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep me inspired in the kitchen.
I don’t usually “do” cute food, but how adorable are these snowman cookie pops?! I think I might be spending too much time on Pinterest…
Don’t let cookie decorating intimidate you – if I can make these come out halfway decent, you definitely can, too! figured out a pretty nifty trick while I was making these too. If your dough is too warm and starts to spread and lose the snowman shape while they bake, it’s ok! Just gently lace the cutter that use used right on top of the cookie (lining up the edges the best that you can) and trace around it with a toothpick to clean up the edges. I found that this especially came in handy around the brim of the snowman’s hat.
I bought a cheap pastry bag at the grocery store and used that to draw on the cream frosting, then quickly smoothed it out with the back of a spoon before it hardened. They don’t look perfect, but I kind of like them.
They taste awesome, too! The cookie is one of my favorite sugar cookie recipes (it’s so easy to mix up!) with lots of cocoa added. Then, I used Betty Crocker Cookies ‘N Cream Frosting to decorate them. The frosting is part of Betty’s new Hershey’s line, and it’s so ridiculously good. I went through a jar and a half perfecting these cookies… then ate the rest of it spoonful by spoonful over the next week or two. The icing itself tastes just like the cream from the center of a sandwich cookie. Yum! I picked out some of the bigger cookie pieces for the eyes and buttons, then crushed the rest and used them to color in the snowmen’s hats.
