I love giving gifts from the kitchen. For years, I made chocolate covered Ritz cracker and peanut butter cookies to give people at Christmas. This year, I wanted to make something different and made the snowman cookies pictured above. So many people asked me how I made them, I decided it would make a good topic for "Margaret's Morsels."
Put the cookies on a piece of wax paper. While the coating is still wet, add two mini chocolate chips for the eyes,
For aesthetic reasons, I turn the pointed side of the chocolate chips down. I also turn the M&M's over so the "m" doesn't show.
Tie a strand around each snowman, trimming any excess licorice with a pair of kitchen shears.
If you prefer, you can use tubes of decorator icing to pipe on the eyes, noses, buttons and scarves. Make sure to let the coating dry completely before you decorate the cookies.
