On the second day of Christmas The Pink Whisk sent to me….Snowman Cookie Lollies

Snowman Cookie Lollipops

So cute, last year I sent these to all the children in the family instead of a christmas card.  This batch are off to the School Fair to raise some money for the PTA.

Make up the cookie dough as per the instructions here Sugar Cookies and roll out slightly thicker this time to about 7mm thick and chill the sheets of dough.

You will also need:

1 x quantity Sugar Cookie Dough – recipe here
1 x pack of Wilton Lollipop Sticks

Ready to roll icing, white and gel food colours 

Using circular cutters cut out the snowman cookies using a variety of sizes.

When you have them all cut out insert a lollipop stick through the dough about half way up the cookie.

Preheat the oven to 160c Fan/180c/Gas Mark 4.

Place on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper or Bake-O-Glide and chill again in the fridge for half an hour.

Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes for the little snowmen and 12-15 for the large ones.

Remove from the oven when baked and light golden brown around the edges.
Allow to cool for five minutes on the tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once all your snowmen are baked and completely cooled it’s time to get going with the roll out icing.

Roll out a sheet of white fondant, making sure you dust the work surface well with icing sugar to stop it sticking, using the cutters that you used for the cookies cut out the snowmen’s faces.

With a paintbrush brush the cookie with a small amount of water and place the white fondant on top, pressing down gently to get it to stick.  Repeat with all the snowmen.

Next onto the bobble hats.  Roll out any colour you like for the hats and cut out with the circle cutters again.  Cut each circle into half.

Brush the back of the hat with the paintbrush dipped in water, remember you only need a tiny bit to dampen it.  Place on the snowman’s face as a hat.

Cut a long thin strip to form the brim of the hat and cut to size.

Brush the back with water and stick in place.  Create markings on the brim with the back of a knife.

Roll a small ball of fondant and stick in place as a bobble.

Take a small amount of fondant and colour it orange with gel colour paste, if you’re using the ready coloured packet of icing combine some of the red and some of the yellow to form orange.

Shape small pieces into carrot noses and using a little bit of water stick into place as a nose.

Finally you will need to roll a million tiny balls of black sugarpaste as pieces of coal for the eyes and the mouth.

Okay, not really a million but it does feel like it.

Stick them in place with a little dab of water from the paintbrush.

Allow to set overnight so the bits don’t fall off when they shouldn’t!

Cookies will keep for up to two weeks in an airtight container.

    Looks like a great recipe!
    I only started my blog a couple of months ago but am putting some Christmas recipes on, so far I've got macaroons but I'll be adding Christmas cupcakes, Fudge (for presents) and cookies. Please check it out if you have the time.

    These are amazing! I'll probably end up just eating them all myself though.

    Does the dough freeze well? I'd quite like to get a head start on doing some Christmas baking and having frozen dough for a later date would be amazing.

    These look fab to make for the school Christmas fayre, Ruth. Do you make and sell these for something similar? If so, how much do you think I could get away with charging for each one? Our Christmas Fayre is our main PTA fundraiser for the year. I hope mine look as good as yours! Where do you get your cellophane bags?
    Will be making your Christmas cake again this year-it didn’t last long last year!
    Thanks for the inspiration xxx

    Sadly I didn’t get to decorate mine. I bought wiltons lollipop wrapping kit thinking it was the same sticks and obviously not as they melted and shrunk in the oven. Gutted!

  20. Rachael says:

    Won’t plastic melt on cooking?

  21. Donna says:

    Will be perfect for our local children’s Xmas party tomorrow.
