- For icing, in a small bowl combine powdered sugar, vanilla, and enough milk to make a thin icing consistency. Spread about 1 teaspoon icing over the top and sides of each peanut butter cookie so that the texture of the cookie shows through.
- To make gumdrop hats, roll a large gumdrop into an oval in granulated sugar. Roll oval into a cone shape; press to seal ends. Curl up bottom edge of cone to form a brim. Attach hat to head of peanut butter snowman with icing. Add candy decorations or decorator icing to make dots for eyes and buttons. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
