I saw these cute snowmen biscuits on Hand Luggage Only. They’re really easy to make, so a great option if you’re short on time or if you’re baking festive treats with children.

I used my Christmas vanilla biscuit recipe which only uses 5 ingredients. Click on the link for the ingredients and instructions.

I used a large flower shaped cutter, but you could also use a large mug or glass to cut out round biscuits.

Other things you’ll need:

  • A packet of white marshmallows
  • Black writing icing (you can make your own) and/or an edible ink decoration pen
  • Orange writing icing and another colour for the scarves

Decoration

I started with the snowmen heads. I used an edible ink decoration pen to draw on the eyes and mouths. You could use black writing icing, but that would be trickier. I used orange icing for their noses.

Mix up some white water icing by adding water to sieved icing sugar one teaspoon at a time. You want the icing to be quite thick so it will pool on the biscuits. I didn’t weigh out the icing sugar (sorry!), but 200g (7 oz) should be enough.

Drop a teaspoonful of the icing onto the centre of the biscuit and use the back of the spoon to spread it out. Place a marshmallow onto the wet icing.

Leave the white icing to set. This will take at least a couple of hours. When it’s set, use either your pen or black icing to draw on buttons and arms. Use your other colour to draw on the scarves.

Decoration tip: Take care when drawing the snowmen’s faces not to make the eyes too large or they’ll look like ghosts. And don’t give them eyebrows or you’ll end up with a snowman like the one I decided to call “evil Bob”:
