Baking is such a stress release for me. Once I start, I can not stop. While I love holiday baking, in particular, I love seasonal baking even more.
To me seasonal baking lets me use my skills on a few of my favorites more than once.
One of the most compelling reasons to try my Chocolate Chip Snowmen Cookie recipe is because it requires no rolling pin and no cookie cutters.
Further, if you want a cookie that can be baked from October through March you found it!
As you know I keep my recipes easy to replicate and chocolate chip snowmen cookies are truly easy to make and bake.
I stumbled upon this creation, due to a large mistake when baking and I’ve never gone back!

In my earlier days of baking, trust me my skills were different from what they are now.
But what I took away from my less than ‘pro’ skilled baking days was in an invaluable recipe that makes the Casa Vento top 10 list!
Truly easy to make and quite honestly the cookie grew out of mistakes in baking and flops.
When I admit that, I can tell you I don’t always get my cooking perfect or my baking. I too have my off days!
This recipe is considered a blessing from the recipe Gods!

Tips Before Baking – Chocolate Chip Snowman cookies
First and foremost, keep parchment paper in your baking supplies.
I believe that it is key to a fast cleanup and flawless cookie release powers.
No more breaking cookies or spraying pans with nonstick spray!
Another option which I love for drop cookies of any type is Silpat cookie mats.
Unlike traditional parchment paper, they adhere to the tray and DO Not Move when you drop a cookie.
Second, smaller chips are better than standard. The smaller chips are better for even texture throughout the cookies.
I use the traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe found on the back of any chocolate chip bag.
You can’t go wrong as the ingredients are tested and true. In case you don’t know the recipe I will site it for you here.
Just grab a bag of chocolate chips for your own! You won’t find me reinventing the wheel here, when it’s already great I go with it!
Make sure you have a set of mini spatula scrapers in your possession. Every well-versed kitchen has a set!
Don’t get long handles instead use short handle mini scrapers like these.
Just so you know, I doubled up on the ingredients as my family loves this recipe.
I do not use nuts in this recipe as my son can not eat them, therefore, they were eliminated from it.
You could add them into yours, I am not sure what that would look like.
I love butter when I bake! However, if you prefer coconut oil it is a 1:1 swap so go for it!
Recipe for Chocolate Chip Snowmen Cookies
2 1/4 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
salt (up to 1 tsp and optional) – butter has salt in it, so I don’t add more in.
2 sticks of salted butter (1 c) or Coconut Oil
3/4 c granulated sugar & 3/4 c packed brown sugar
2 c mini morsel chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
Tablespoon for scooping
Teaspoon for scooping
Writing icing in black or white
Make your cookie batter. Once you are done making batter, get ready to make snowmen.
Next, scoop a tablespoon of batter for the body, and then a teaspoon scoop for the head.
Do not place them together leave a small gap between (they will merge together).
Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown (you have baked chocolate chips before I don’t need to tell you when they are done!)
Remove from oven and allow to cool. Finally, it’s time to bring these little snowmen to life.
Do be very patient with the cooling because you don’t want the confectionary sugar to melt or he icing to run.
You want to use the writing icing to make 2 eyes, a nose and a line across the neck, then 3 drops for buttons on the belly.
Optionally, dust with confectionery sugar for the ‘snow effect’. Tray up and serve.
Allow the icing to dry it can take a few hours. Then package these into an airtight container or onto serving trays and enjoy!
Practicality Makes Ordinary Extraordinary
I love a great recipe, that just happens. Honestly, that is how I discovered this treat years ago.
Once October hits, I consider snowmen chocolate chips the only chocolate chips allowed to appear in our home.
The cookies welcome the season and then of course at the end I switch back to just dropped chocolate chips!
