We are back with another day of holiday baking in our 12 days of amazing holiday treats. I love baking at the holidays. Growing up, it was so memorable to bake with my mom and bake with my Grandma. My Grandpa would always make brittle and fudge and we would bake and bake and bake cookies and more cookies. It was so fun. A memory I will never forget.

We are doing 12 Days of Baking on our YouTube Channel and right here on our blog. Be sure to check out the corresponding vlog to bake along with me… it’s like we’re baking together!

These treats aren’t really a recipe but they are delicious, fun for the whole family and an amazing crowd pleaser.

These are perfect for a gift, for a party or just to make someone feel special. We have a few great ideas to really make these extra fun and we can’t wait to share them with you.

Let’s get started.

Start by melting the melting wafers. These are specifically designed for purposes such as this and are smooth and shiny. If you use regular chocolate, you could see a gray film on the top of your chocolate. You don’t want that. No one wants to eat gray film.

We recommend using the white or chocolate melting wafers but not the colored ones. The colored ones melt much thicker and don’t become as smooth as the others. If you want your chocolate to be colored, we suggest using food coloring with the white chocolate wafers if you want to have a different colored coating.

Dunk each sandwich cookie into the melted chocolate, pull it out of the mixture with a fork and tap the excess off. Slide onto a silpat mat. If you want to just put sprinkles on top do so while the chocolate is still wet.

For the chocolate cookies, we piped a small amount of chocolate icing for the base of a Christmas tree and then green icing in a zig zag pattern to make up the tree itself. With a toothpick we worked the icing into the crevices to fill in the tree or you can leave it in the zig zag pattern. For each layer, stop just shy of the where the previous layer ended to taper it off.We found cute candy cane and light sprinkles and used those on some and on others just a simple gold ball on top.

For the white chocolate cookies, we have a couple of adorable ideas. Once the white chocolate coating completely dries you can begin these decorations.

For the lights you will need assorted colors of mini M&M’s and either black or chocolate icing. I used Betty Crocker Cookie Icing. Pipe the icing in a zig zag pattern from right to left to right to left. Stick the mini M&M’s vertically in the icing to create a string of lights.

For the snowman you will need Mini chocolate chips, mini M&M’s, chocolate cookie icing. Use white icing to secure mini M&M’s on each side as ear muffs. Use chocolate or black icing to create a smile, two mini chocolate chips for the eyes and an orange or yellow mini M&M for the nose.

For the polar bears use blue regular size M&M’s, eye candies and white chocolate chips. We cut off the top of the white chocolate chips to make them more rounded for ears. We used a small amount of white icing to adhere the details. Put a dot of chocolate icing on each side for the ear muffs. Place a same colored Mini M&M on each side. Put a dot of icing for the eyes and place a mini chocolate chip on each eye. Make a mouth with the chocolate icing. Put a red or orange M&M for the nose on top of a dot of icing. There you have it.

These are delicious and perfect as gifts or for a gathering. Get creative with your designs and have fun.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Package Family Sized Double Stuffed Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
  • 1 Package White Chocolate Melting Wafers
  • 1 Package Chocolate Melting Wafers

Instructions
 

  • Melt the wafers. You can use any flavor or color. Melt using a double boiler or place in microwave safe dish and melt in :30 increments. We prefer using white chocolate or dark chocolate as opposed to the colorful ones. The colorful ones melt much thicker and in our experience don't sheet as well over what you are covering. We prefer the white or dark chocolate and then if you want to add color, use food coloring with the white melts.
  • Using two forks, dunk one of your sandwich cookies into the melted chocolate. cover completely remove with fork and tap gently on side of bowl so excess sheets off.
  • Move to silpat mat or parchment paper sprayed with baking spray.
