Christmas biscuit recipe with snowman icinglunchbox
It’s a rainy weekend in December and you’re cooped up in the house; what can you do to keep the kids entertained and yourself from going mad? Get creative in the kitchen with this fun melting snowman biscuit recipe! The great thing about these festive Christmas biscuits is that the messier they are, the better they look. So they’re perfect for little ones and it doesn’t matter if you’re no Delia Smith in the kitchen either, as there’s minimal cooking skills required! And to make it that extra bit fun we’ve got some great novelty cooking gifts to help you.
200g fondant icing sugar
6 white marshmallows
6 large cookies
24 mini chocolate beans
Tube black writing icing.
- Put the icing sugar into a bowl and add cold water a teaspoon at a time using our Mon Cherry measuring spoons and egg separator. Keep adding water until the mixture is runny but thick enough to coat a spoon.
- Snip the marshmallows in half using wetted scissors.
- Spoon a little icing onto each cookie and attach half a marshmallow for the snowman’s head. Using a little icing, stick the other half on top at an angle so it looks like it’s melting. Drizzle a little more icing onto the cookie to make melting snow.
- Break the pretzel sticks in half and place on the cookie for arms. Stick orange chocolate beans on for the noses. Stick three chocolate beans on each cookie to represent buttons.
- Using the writing icing, pipe small blobs for the eyes and mouth. Leave to set.
Now that’s the cheat method using cookies out of a packet. But if you want to keep the kids entertained a little while longer, you can always bake your own cookies, and let’s be honest, nothing beats the smell of homemade cookies baking in the oven! If you do decide to bake your own then you’ll need some baking tools so how about our Nutter Cookie Cutter to make fun squirrel shaped cookies?
The kids will love rolling special messages into their biscuits with our Message Rolling Pin Gift Box. They can stamp the underneath of their cookies with ‘Secret Recipe’, ‘Made with Love’ or, if you’re making Halloween biscuits, how about ‘Bite Me’.
