Do you still need another treat for your cookie tray? Or perhaps you skipped baking all together this season and now feel obligated to bring something tasty to the family Christmas gathering?
This is an easy, fun solution you can force the kids to do for you.
Of course, if you do that you’ll deprive yourself of the pleasure of pummeling out your holiday stress crushing that bag of mini candy canes.
There are so many options for these treats. White chocolate coating looks beautiful with colored frosting drizzle and candy canes are always striking and festive. Oooo or indulgent dark chocolate and caramel scattered with chopped nuts would be good.
Then there are countless dipping devices too. Pretzel sticks, mini pretzels, potato chips, Oreos, thin chocolate wafers and even dog bones for your favorite furry friend.
My personal favorite this year are Biscoff cookies. They’re a thin, crunchy cross between graham crackers and gingersnaps.
I know you’re busy and won’t stall you any longer. Let’s get started!
Switch up the colors and candy for other holidays, celebrations or game days.
1 bag white chocolate coating
Dipping Device Options (Pick one)
Thin chocolate wafer cookies
Ruffles potato chips
Dog bones (Don’t dip human treats with these please!)
Coating Options (Pick one or more)
Crushed Mini Candy Canes
Wilton Cooking Icing
Melted colored candy melts
Melted caramel squares (prepped as for apples)
Chopped toasted nuts
Lay out several feet of wax paper near your dipping area.
Melt white chocolate coating in a microwave safe bowl, or in a tall glass for pretzels on high for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave 30 more seconds. Repeat until melted.
Dip dipping devices into coating shaking off the excess. If using crushed candy canes or nuts sprinkle the base area on the wax paper. Lay the dipping device down and sprinkle the tops and sides. Let set.
If dressing dipping devices with icing, melted chocolate or caramel, first let the coating set then drizzle as desired.
