These are my decorated cookies. Every year I have wonderful plans to make cookies with very detailed decorations … well, those plans flew out the window … as usual. But I’m OK with that … I don’t have what I really need … time.
Drizzle and sprinkle … that is my solution. Chocolate and sprinkles can dress up anything … and who doesn’t like chocolate and sprinkles? Don’t think that you need to make rolled cookies … I do this on drop cookies too!
To start … I made Shortbread Cookies and melted some chocolate. I put the white in a squeeze bottle and just used a fork to drizzle the dark chocolate. A zip top bag also works well.
I do have quite a supply of sprinkles … just in case I need them … OK, I’ll admit I’m slightly obsessed. Here are the different ones I used …
Starting at the upper left corner ….
- Silver Disco Dust
- White Edible Glitter
- White Non Pareils
- Silver Star Glitter
- Multi-colored Non Pareils
- White Sugar Crystals
- White Sanding Sugar
- Silver Sanding Sugar
So, you just line up the cookies … I like to use a rack, but it’s not necessary …
Drizzle chocolate and add sprinkles before the chocolate hardens …
If you use Disco Dust … my advise is to use the tip of a brush and tap it off. I used my fingers once and had glitter everywhere!
This is a foolproof decorating method … I think it can make any plain cookie look a little fancy!
