    Frosty the Snowman Cookie

      Frosty the Snowman Christmas cookie; fondant, jersey caramel and coconut top a chocolate sugar cookie

    Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,
    With a corncob pipe and a button nose
    And two eyes made out of coal.
    Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
    He was made of snow but the children
    Know how he came to life one day.
    There must have been some magic in that
    Old silk hat they found.
    For when they placed it on his head
    He began to dance around.
    O, Frosty the snowman
    Was alive as he could be,
    And the children say he could laugh
    And play just the same as you and me.

    A touch of retro today with a 'Frosty the Snowman' cookie... a present for my husband Mark who has been grumbling about "you never make a snowman". Mark does love a snowman, I'm sure something to do with the fact that he has never actually seen snow!!

    To keep with the retro theme Frosty's round tummy & the snowballs are made from a Mark's favourite childhood lolly 'Jersey Caramels'. With a fudge like texture it was easy to shape and roll into small balls, I dipped the balls in melted white chocolate and rolled them in desiccated coconut to form the snowballs.

    I am feeling the time pinch and it's just about my last post for the year. For those who haven't seen my earlier posts; for the first seven months of 2011 I'll be assisting my husband setting up his landscaping business 'Mark Paxton Landscapes' and will only be able to blog sporadically. I'm sure there will be months in that time frame where I'll be able to do more and times when I won't, like "June" tax time!! 

    But for now "Happy Baking" :)

    OMG Jersey Caramels are MY favourite sweet of all time too. Never thought of using them in this way. Very clever. Frosty is soooo cute.

    Since I moved away from Sydney it's all I've been thinking about. I always get mum to bring me about 2kg of them when she visits. My other favourites are Jaffas, Freckles. I love all those Allens retro sweets.

    Thanks for all the recent posts. They've really been great.
    All the best in the New Year with the landscaping business too. I guess landscaping and cake/ cookie decorating are not dissimilar and I know that you'll do famously well.

    Ha, I love those Allens retro sweets too... I saw the giant freckles the other day and was thinking they would make great individual favours for a retro themed party :) Thank you Jude re: the posts and the best wishes for the landscaping biz... I won't be able to blog much at first, but I'm sure all will go well and I can't wait until I'm back full time! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year :)
