1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)
Decorator candies, as desired
Heat oven to 375°F.
Beat sugar, butter and brown sugar in bowl at medium speed until well mixed. Add eggs, cream of tartar and vanilla, beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Shape dough into 24 balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Melt candy coating according to package directions.
Make 1 snowman at a time, spreading 1 tablespoon melted candy coating in center of cookie to resemble melting snow. Place marshmallow onto cookie for head. Decorate as desired, adding face, scarf, buttons, arms, etc., using candy coating to attach, if necessary. Repeat with remaining cookies and decorations. Reheat candy coating, if necessary.
To make snowman head appear as if melting, microwave marshmallow 5-10 seconds to soften. Watch carefully so it does not over soften and puff up. Attach to cookie, pressing down on marshmallow to flatten slightly. Decorate as above.

I made these a few years ago and was telling my 5 year old grandson about them - he was too little then but now he definitely wants a reprise!
I added a flat piece of chocolate and another chocolate candy (perhaps a Rollo or something else cylindrical) to make a top hat and add to the fun
These cookies look adorable in the photo. However, the recipe calls for you to roll into 24 balls. I followed that advice against my better instincts. To make the huge bowl of batter into 24 even shaped balls required the 'balls' of dough to be quite large. I should have used my judgement and made the balls half the size. What happens is they spread out into these huge cookies and then the little miniature marshmallow heads look tiny on the big puffy cookie..out of proportion and no where near as cute as the picture.
Hi Michelle - these cookies are intended to be large. We also call for marshmallows, not miniature sized - this could be why the proportion looked off to you. Hope this helps! Happy baking!
Cute and crafty, these cookies are tasty and fun to decorate for kids of all ages.
