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. Lavishly live cookie baking out loud with my simple recipe that delivers big smiles!
Chocolate Chip Snowmen Cookies
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 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 it was a blessing from the recipe Gods, is what I say! Are you ready for your chocolate Chip Snowman Cookies Recipe?
Tips Before Baking
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 are 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, but 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!
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, but you can optionally add them in yours. Again, the texture will change, so I would not.
I love butter when I bake! No one is going to sell me on subbing in butter for some other substance. Splurge a little, and lavishly live it out loud!
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 butter (1 c)
3/4 c granulated sugar & 3/4 c packed brown sugar
2 c mini morsel chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 c chipped nuts (optional)
Tablespoon for scooping
Teaspoon for scooping
Writing icing in black or white
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.
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 and when I make chocolate chips cookies each year starting in October, they are always chocolate chip snowmen. The cookies welcome the season and then of course at the end I switch back to just dropped chocolate chips!
