Chocolate Snowflakes

These chocolate peanut butter cookies are decorated with all white vanilla buttercream. I just love the way the designs pop against the dark cookie!

I decorated each snowflake with a unique design.

I thought I would run out of ideas, but I just kept making them up as I went along.. my husband helped design a couple. (The bottom left snowflake in the pic above was partly his design.)

  4. Hi Carrie! I have a holiday bake sale and this buttercream sounds like just what I need. I planned on making snowflakes! If they turn out half as good as these I will be lucky. I might make cakes but cookie frosting is defiantly a gift you have !
