- 1 package Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
- 10 large marshmallows
- Betty Crocker Cookie Icing (white and orange)
- Wilton Decorating Icing Tubes in Black, Red, Green, Blue and Pink (although I only used orange and black)
Unfortunately, for the uncreative, these cookies were not as easy to make as the pictures make it seem. First of all, I think I bought the wrong icing – I bought the icing in the can that you squeeze out so it didn’t really have a “puddle effect.”Also, the marshmallows I had in my closet were more of a “gag” gift this summer (as I love smores) and I think they were a little bit too big. Here’s what I actually came up with:
So as you can see, without the right icing and the small(er) mallows, these snowmen don’t really have the “puddle effect.”
Now, these cookies weren’t exactly hard to make – they were actually pretty easy and they are adorable! But the reason the Final Verdict is BUST is because these cookies are impossible to eat (and retain their cuteness) and impossible to transport (and really, who is going to eat ALL of these cookies!). So in conclusion – despite the cuteness, it’s just a sugar cookie and mallow so unless I’m going to show them off to others (in which case I’d need to transport them – which is impossible) – it’s kind of pointless. Very cute cookie but not worth it (in my opinion).
And yes, I’m still grading research papers.
