melting snowmen made out of Airheads candy

I needn’t bore you yet again with my dramatic woe-is-me about having invented the melting snowman cookie back in 2008 (affectionately named Mr. Melty), and then watching him go viral on the internet, having some unpleasant exchanges with those who feel no need to give credit, and then seeing Mr. Melty in national magazines and earning others fame and fortune. OK, maybe not fortune, but definitely fame. Nah, I won’t bore you yet again. Oh wait, I just did.  Alas, move on, Meaghan!

(the original, from 2008)


I’m moving on. To Airheads candies. Airheads sent me a box of sweets, so I made some melting snowmen made entirely out of Airheads candy. Easy peasy. You can also just use the Airheads for the head and stick with the classic cookie bottom.

    Really cute- nice reinvention of your original.

    I have to say- Even I’ve gotten a bit annoyed seeing Mr. Melty in mags that don’t credit you… can only imagine how frustrating it is for you.

    : )

    Just wanted to mention I saw a do it yourself kit in Target today that looked just like the cookie you made. I thought of your cookie as soon as I saw it.
