Today is my last submission for #CookieWeek. I've been sick for most of this month, so I'm physically drained and finding it difficult to get into the kitchen. I'm sure that we've all had times where we NEEDED to make a treat to send to school with the kids, or for an office party at work, but there was just no motivation or energy to do it. That's when these super easy, super simple snowman cookies will fit perfectly into your life.
WORD OF CAUTION: When I was standing in line for creativity and hand/eye coordination, God decided to give me crazy awesome Scrabble skills instead. Seriously... I couldn't paint myself through a kindergarten art class...but I ROCK at coming up with 7- letter words to fit onto a Triple Word Score.
So please know that these snowmen cookies, while immensely ridiculous looking, were made with love and can be made MUCH more awesome by anyone ages 4 and up. Regardless, I think they're perfectly adorable in their own imperfect way. No two humans are made exactly alike, and apparently, the same goes for snow people.
They're SO easy to make that I don't even need to give you an actual recipe. Just a shopping list and directions for assembly. First, let me share some WILDLY delicious looking cookies with you. This is what's being made by the other #CookieWeek bloggers today:

SNOWMEN COOKIES ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
To make my Simple Snowmen Cookies, you'll need:
~ White Fudge Covered Oreos (I found them at Target)
~ Food safe writing markers (available at most craft stores)
~ orange decorating gel or royal icing
~ candy corn (optional)
Use the food markers to give your snow people cute faces and accessories.
I cut the yellow end off of candy corn pieces and used an orange food marker to color in the white end for the snow people's noses, but if you have the decorating skills that I'm lacking, just use the orange decorating gel to give your snow people adorable noses
I used a dab of decorating gel to hold the candy corn in place.
The most important step of this project is to let your imagination work wonders. When all is said and done, having fun while you work is a GREAT way to keep your spirit fed!
