MELTING SNOWMEN CHOCOLATE SUGAR COOKIES
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 16 People
⅓ cup vegan butter or margarine
⅓ cup sugar
3 tbsp plant-based milk
1 ⅔ cup plain flour, plus extra for dusting
¼ cup Divine Drinking Chocolate
1 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
1 cup powdered sugar, plus extra for dusting
2 tbsp water
Sprinkles for eyes etc
2 tbsp Divine 70% Dark Chocolate bar, melted
Cream together the butter and sugar until soft and silky and then stir in the milk.
Pour in the flour, Divine Drinking Chocolate powder, baking powder and a pinch of salt and stir to a thick dough. Roll into a ball, wrap tightly and place in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350*F and line a work surface with parchment paper and a dusting of flour.
Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out circles or shapes and transfer to a lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10-11 minutes until firm and crisping at the edges. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool fully.
Stir together the icing sugar and water to a thick paste and spread over the cookies in a melting design (or pipe it on for neater “puddles”). Allow the icing to set.
Top each cookie with a marshmallow snowman and then place some sprinkles on for buttons. Use the melted chocolate and a toothpick to add on faces and arms and top add some chocolate on top of the marshmallows for hats. Allow to set and dust with icing sugar.
