Such an easy, fun idea for kids and adults alike! Follow the tips for "working with chocolate"!
melting chocolate (i used a large brick of white bark)
sucker sticks (sold at michael's)
sprinkles, jimmies or decorations of your choice
1One stick per cookie pushed into the frosting.
2Dip your cookie into the melted chocolate then lay on a sheet of waxed paper and sprinkle.
3Allow to fully cool and set before you remove them from the paper. They freeze great too so you can make up a batch and freeze what you don't need (makes a great "special treat" on a day where you need a little help with the kids!). Enjoy!
4Some tips for working with chocolate:
---Use a double boiler! This means using a bowl set inside your container with the hot water, put on the heating unit. This prevents your chocolate from burning.
---DO NOT allow the water in the boiler to actually BOIL! If your water begins to boil it will burn the chocolate, turn it down immediately, there is a fine line.
---Even the tiniest drop of water in your bowl of chocolate will ruin the whole thing! If you see your chocolate gets a grainy texture, you have gotten water into the bowl and it is now garbage. I know that sounds unbelievable, but it could not be more true. So move slowly and do not splash!
