Squeeze the white cookie icing on Nutter Butter Cookies and let it run down the sides.
Add more icing to the top edge and let it run down the sides to cover them.
Position the eyes, nose and buttons on the snowman’s jacket. Take your time because it can be a bit tricky getting them positioned just right.
Let the cookies sit for a few minutes so the icing begins to dry and holds the decorations in place.
Lift up cookies using a spatula once the icing begins to harden but before the icing is completely dry and move them to a clean sheet of wax paper. You may have to do this a couple of times until the icing quits pooling on the wax paper.
Let the icing dry completely which can take a little while.
Use the red or green cookie icing to make a scarf around the snowman’s neck. If the white icing is not dry enough, the colored icing will mix with it and the scarf won’t have clean lines.
Follow steps 5 and 6 again.
Add some of the Wilton Sparkle Gel to the bottom of the cookies and spread it around with a butter knife so it spills over the edge of the cookie if you want the cookie to have some sparkle. If not, skip this step.
Let the icing dry overnight.
Once the icing is completely dry, position the cookies on the cookie platter and serve. If you are giving them as gifts, go ahead and package them up.
