Snowman Cookies No Bake Holiday Cookies

How cute are these snowman cookies?  The are perfect for the holidays or winter months! I love making memories in the kitchen and I love that all recipe making memories don’t have to be complicated for that nostalgic feeling to exist. 

Over the years we have created and made a whole lot of no bake holiday fun that’s especially perfect for this time of year. 

As a working mom of three, when Christmas Eve would roll around we often wanted to do something special.  However, with all of the prep for company and wrapping and everything else that had to get done, firing up the oven was the last thing on my ‘to do’ list. 

So, I often sought to simplify our lives while still having a little food fun together. Here is one no bake Santa Cookie alternative that keeps family fun simple, but sentimental.

And, although these cookies are perfect for Christmas Eve/Santa plate making yum, they are equally great for a few other activities.  These no bake snowman cookies are also perfect for classroom or winter birthday parties.  They are equally fun for a child gathering in which the kiddos make their own; it’s like craft time with food.

Here is a printable version of this recipe for you to spread, decorate and make together…

Snowman Cookies

Snowman Cookies
Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • (per cookie)
  • 1 Pre-made sugar cookie
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla butter cream frosting
  • 1 tube of black gel or chocolate decorating frosting
  • 1 orange slice candy
  • 1 string of a pull and peel Twizzler®



Frost the cookie with the vanilla butter cream frosting.

Cut the string of Twizzler® in half and wrap around the top half of the cookie to serve as the top of the earmuffs.

Select two matching colors of mini pastel marshmallows. Press them slightly to flatten and place them firmly in place so that they stick to the frosting on either end of the cut Twizzler®.

Use the tubed frosting to create two eyes and a mouth.

cut the orange slice candy in half lengthwise. Then cut one half into small triangles to create noses. Add one to the center of each cookie.
