9th Day of Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies

“Gingerbread Melting Snowmen”

The smell of warm gingerbread filling the air could only mean one thing; gingerbread men must be baking in the oven, or my melting snowmen are! Simple, fun and oh so good! If you love gingerbread this is the one for you! I am always looking to simplify my recipes, and I recently noticed that a lot of the new Betty Crocker and Pillsbury recipes are using their cookie pouch mixes. I will still make the tried and true recipes from scratch, but when you want to create a recipe in a short amount of time, the ready-made pouches work great, taste great too! Feel free to make your own gingerbread cookies for this recipe.

This recipe yields 3 dozen cookies.


  • 1 Pkg. Betty Crocker or Pillsbury Gingerbread Cookie Mix
  • 1 Container of Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Classic White Frosting
  • Miniature Chocolate Bits (for the eyes)
  • Orange sprinkles (for the nose)


Prepare Cookie Mix according to directions (or make your recipe from scratch).

Frost your cookies while still slightly warm. This will give the frosting a melted appearance.

Place 2 mini morsels for the eyes and one orange sprinkle for the carrot nose.

Let’s Decorate!

Candy canes can be glued curved side out, around the outside of a clean coffee can for a quick flower vase, and then add your favorite flowers. How festive!

Use pretty glass trifle bowls to hold pillar candles. Keep them in place with glittery sugar or cranberries.
