Winter spiced chocolate sugar cookies with a melting snowman on top!

Preperation Time: 13 minutes | Cooking Time: 11 minutes | Serves: 16 People


  • 40g Divine Winter Warming Spiced Hot Chocolate
  • 80g vegan butter or margarine
  • 80g caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp plant-based milk
  • 200g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 200g icing sugar, plus extra for dusting
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 16-18 marshmallows
  • Sprinkles for eyes etc
  • 20g dark chocolate, melted



Cream together the butter and sugar until soft and silky and then stir in the milk.


Pour in the flour, Winter Warmer Spiced Hot 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 160Fan/180*C and line a work surface with baking paper and a dusting of flour.


Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment to abut ½ cm 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.
