  • 4egg whites
  • 8 cups confectioners’ sugar, or as needed
  • ¼ cup lemon juice, or as needed
  • 24sugar cookies
  • 24large marshmallows
  • 1 (.75 ounce) tube black decorating gel(Optional)
  • 1 (.75 ounce) tube orange decorating gel(Optional)
  • 75silver nonpareils, or as desired(Optional)
  • 1 (.75 ounce) tube red decorating gel(Optional)
  • 1 (.75 ounce) tube green decorating gel(Optional)
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Beat egg whites lightly in a large bowl using an electric mixer until frothy. Slowly beat enough confectioners’ sugar into egg whites to make icing that will hold shape; blend in lemon juice until desired consistency is reached.


  • Step 2

    Arrange cookies about 1-inch apart on a large sheet of waxed paper. Spread icing onto each cookie, allowing icing to drip over edges to look like melting snow.

  • Step 3

    Grease a microwave-safe plate. Place 1 marshmallow onto plate.

  • Step 4

    Microwave marshmallow until it starts to puff up, 20 to 30 seconds. Immediately place marshmallow on the edge of 1 cookie while the icing is still wet to look like a melted snowman. Repeat with remaining marshmallows and iced cookies.

  • Step 5

    Decorate ‘melted snowmen’ by piping ‘twig-like arms’ using black decorating gel on the icing. Make ‘coal eyes’ and a ‘mouth’ on the marshmallow using black decorating gel. Make a ‘carrot nose’ under the ‘coal eyes’ using orange decorating gel. Make ‘coat buttons’ by arranging silver nonpareils down the middle of the icing. Make ‘scarves’ or ‘bow-ties’ using red decorating gel or green decorating gel.

  • Step 6

    Allow cookies to fully dry before removing from waxed paper, at least 1 hour.

  • Cook's Note:

    You can use premade dough, such as Pillsbury(R) to make the cookies. No one cares.
