Coupon for $1.00/2 Pillsbury Refrigerated Cookie Dough

Coupon for $1.00/1 Nestle Tollhouse

You'll need

Cookie Dough (any)
Large Marshmallows
Royal Icing
Icing Colors
Silver Dragees, Mini Chocolate Chips, or other little candy pieces you could use for buttons and accessories on your snowman. (You can pipe these details in royal icing OR use accessories. For kids... accessories are easier)
Parchment Paper

You'll need to line your Cookie Sheets with Parchment Paper, and pre-heat oven.

Roll the Cookie Dough (any) into a ball and start to press it flat. Make it so it has a real wavy kind of funky look to it. The ultimate goal is to create a 'puddle' look. There is no right shape. I like to start it in my hand and then set it on the cookie sheet and press it down until it's about half an inch thick. Make them all different.
Go ahead and repeat that step with each cookie. You'll want to get them as close to the same size as possible but they don't have to be exact.
Bake according to your recipe directions.

After your cookies have cooled, you are ready for the next step.
Place a piece of Parchment Paper on your work surface and pick a couple of cookies to start with.
Spoon a small puddle of icing onto your cookie and using the back of a spoon or a knife spread it around making sure to go right to the edges in some spots so he looks drippy.

Next, liberally grease a plate or silicone mat with shortening. And place about 8 marshmallows on the mat, spaced out. Set your microwave for 20 seconds and DO NOT WALK AWAY. Watch the marshmallows. As they start to puff up, you are ready to go. Don't let them get huge or melt. You just want them to puff. Stop your microwave BEFORE they double in size.

Liberally Grease your fingers and pick up one marshmallow at a time and kind of smoosh it into place. You don't have to be neat or perfect, just get it on there. The marshmallows should not stick to your fingers as long as you have shortening on them.
Repeat this step for each cookie and then let the icing set up just a bit.

At this point you've got your base ready to go and you can decorate as you please. Color your royal icing the colors of your choice and have fun.
