Chocolate Peanut Butter Melting Snowman Cookie Recipe

Living in Florida it's always warm, even when it gets cold it's nothing compared to my Upstate New York days. Here is a cute little cookie to make that's fun for the kids and festive for the Christmas cookie tray, delicious too!

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups flour
powdered sugar
water

1 bag candy bells shaped filled with peanut butter or miniature peanut butter cups sliced in half.
whip licorice cut into tiny pieces dipped in orange frosting or just use a writing tip with stiff frosting and pipe the nose.
miniature chocolate chips for eye
Preheat to 350 degrees
In a large mixing bowl cream the shortening, sugars, peanut butter until smooth. Add all the rest of the ingredients to form a ball.
Roll into one inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet or lined with parchment paper and bake 9 minutes or just until the sides are firm.
Cool.
Make frosting thin using powdered sugar and water until it make the right consistency.
Spread the cookies. Add the hat and nose.
