No baking necessary and always a big hit!! My niece made these last year for the holidays and I thought they were adorable. We don't like red hots, so I use mini M&M's. This also allows you to use various colors for the eyes and nose.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt white chocolate, stirring occasionally.
  2. Dip one end of each cookie into melted chocolate.
  3. Place on wire racks.
  4. For santa's hat, sprinkle red sugar on top part of chocolate.
  5. Press one vanilla chip off-center on hat for pom-pom, let stand until set. Note: you can also use a mini marshmallow cut in half for the pom-pom.
  6. Dip other end of each cookie into melted chocolate for beard, leaving center of cookie uncovered.
  7. Place on wire racks.
  8. With a dab of melted chocolate, attach semisweet chips for the eyes and a red-hot for the nose.
  9. Place on waxed paper until chocolate sets.

We got tons of compliments on these cute cookies!! We dipped the red crystals for the hats - it seemed to cover much better than sprinkling. We used red mini m&m's for the nose, and we piped a white chocolate upside-down V to make a mustache and put the red m&m at the peak. We used mini chocolate chips for the eyes. We also used those hard marshmallows (for hot chocolate) for the pom-pom on Santa's hat. 10 *'s for this one!!

How much did we love these! We got so many compliments on these simple cookies :) They are really cute too! We did want to modify them next time and use red M & M's in place of the red hots...personal preference and I think it would be easier for people to eat instead of having to take it off. Thanks for a wonderful and creative idea! Our DD loved helping make these :)
