Festive Cookies by claremanson Festive Cookies by claremanson
Last weekend there was an epic baking session of over 40 sugar cookies being made as Christmas gifts for my kids school and playschool. By the end of the day my kitchen was in complete chaos. It was all worth it though I still have another 30 in the freezer yet to be baked!

I decided to make four different kinds of sugar cookies, all with very Christmas flavours for my country. 
:bulletgreen: Half dipped 1/4 of the cookies in melted Terry's chocolate orange and added some Holly sprinkles. 
:bulletgreen: Half dipped 1/4 of the cookies in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy canes, running a little low on white chocolate I also made some with the white chocolate just drizzled on top with the candy canes. 


I knew I would have a lot of work to do so I decided to make half the cookies have the flavours inside so I wouldn't have to decorate all of them else I would have gone mad. 
:bulletgreen: 1/4 Dried
cranberry with white chocolate chips
:bulletgreen: 1/4 Dark chocolate chips with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

It wasn't so bad, if I had to make, bake and decorate all of them in one day then yes it would have been but I like to do things in stages so didn't really feel like too much in the end :)

I ended up making chocolate chip biscuits, topped with more chocolate :happybounce:

The best bit? eating the left over melted chocolate :XD:

The looked okay, not as pretty as yours though :)

Can you just melt chocolate bars like nice dark chocolate to dip goodies into?

claremanson Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
That's what I did :)

Ok!! Cool! And you do it in a pot that is in a pan of water over flame correct?
Reply
:iconclaremanson:
claremanson Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes, I find it much easier to control, just make sure the water is not boiling too hot and does not touch the bowl you are melting the chocolate in.
