So I don’t know what it looks like in your house right now but since Frozen came out on DVD yesterday, I’m guessing it looks similar to mine. Which currently involves a lot of twirling around the dining room while loudly singing “Let It Go” with overly dramatic hand gestures.
Oh, and Scarlette likes Frozen too.
We actually bought the streaming version last month because Scarlette’s ballet class dances to “Do You Wanna Build A Snowman” and she was constantly asking me to play all of the songs from the movie on youtube for her. (It probably surprises those of you who know about my husband’s fierce resistance to all things Princess that he acquiesced to let her watch Frozen but I made a really strong case for how it’s totally not even a princess movie. Next I will convince him to finally watch The Princess Bride.)
I decided to make Frozen our monthly theme for “Preschool At Home” which sounds really formal but really just means that we’ve been doing a lot of snow-themed crafts and talking about the importance of family and what makes us special. And making cookies.
We’re pretty health conscious around here but I subscribe to a variation of the 80/20 rule which is basically “If there is an Oreo in my presence I will slather it in peanut butter and dunk it in milk.” Milk and peanut butter are totally healthy. Even better: cover it in white chocolate and then slather it in peanut butter and dunk it in milk. My niece requested a Frozen party for her upcoming birthday and I’m pretty sure these pretty little (super easy) snow cookies are going to make an appearance:
How To Make Disney’s Frozen Inspired Snow Cookies
20 Chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos)
12 oz. Wilton white candy melts
Wilton blue ‘ice’ crystals
In a microwave safe bowl heat the white candy melts in 30 second increments. Seriously, make sure the bowl is microwave safe. ASK ME HOW I KNOW THIS. Stir after every 30 seconds until melted. Let cool 2-3 minute before dipping the cookies. THIS IS ALSO IMPORTANT.
Dip one cookie at a time in the white chocolate until it is completely covered. Lift out with a fork and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl. Lay the cookie on wax paper or a foil lined sheet.
Sprinkle the cookie with the blue ‘ice’ crystals after dipping. The chocolate will harden acting like glue holding the crystals in place. Except delicious glue that you can eat.
Repeat this process with the other cookies. Once they are all coated and sprinkled let them set in the fridge for 20-25 minutes to completely set.
Store in an airtight container 1-2 weeks or you can also freeze for several months.
P.S. Here is my FROZEN pinterest board, where I’m secretly storing up ideas for my niece’s birthday. Also, this post is not sponsored or anything, we just really love FROZEN around here. Love is an open do-oooor!
