My kiddos love gingerbread and I like to make them gingerbread men cookies every holiday season, but with a twist by mixing them up with some interesting characters. This year's theme is Frozen (of course!).
To make these Frozen characters in gingerbread men form, all you need is some gingerbread cutout cookies, some melting candy/wafers, and a handful of assorted sprinkles and candies.
Olaf's nose (everyone's favorite snowman) is an orange candy-coated sunflower seed.
Elsa is made with light blue and pale yellow melted candy wafers. I asked my 7-year-old why all the girls like Elsa more than Anna. She said "because Elsa has ice powers of course." OK, makes total sense.
And in case you are not a big Frozen fanatic, the rest of the characters (from the top) are: Kristoff, Sven, Elsa, Olaf, Anna, Prince Hans and the marshmallow snow monster.
Instead of using a store-bought gingerbread cookie mix, you can also use your favorite homemade rolled cookie recipe if you would like to use a different flavor as your cookie base.
Yields 12-15 cookies (depending on the size of your cookie cutter)
Prep time: 30 minutes | Cook time: 15 minutes | Decorating time: 2 hours | Total time: 2 hours 45 minutes
