Melted Snowmen Cookies

Wow, it is officially Christmas time already! To start the season off with some baking, I made these delicious peanut butter cookies decorated like melted snowmen. With some White Christmas playing in the background, and my Holiday candle from Bath and Body Works burning, the holiday season was in full blast in my home. These cookies are the perfect dessert for a holiday party or just for some fun baking with friends!
