Ingredients

  • 1 package of chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 2-3 cups dark or milk melting chocolate I use Bada Bing Bada Boom dark candy and molding formula
  • 1 cup white melting chocolate I use Bada Bing Bada Boom white dipping and coating formula
  • Sprinkles: evergreen tree sprinkles star sprinkles, gold sparkle sugar

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet (that will fit in the refrigerator) with wax paper.
  2. Melt the dark/milk chocolate and place in a small bowl.
  3. Submerge a cookie in the melted chocolate. Use a fork under the cookie to lift it out of the chocolate. Gently tap the fork to remove excess chocolate, then place the coated cookie on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Repeat the process, coating up to 6 cookies. For a shiny finish, work in small batches so that the chocolate doesn’t begin to firm on the cookies before the baking sheet goes into the refrigerator.
  5. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 5-10 minutes, or until the chocolate has set.
  6. Repeat until all of the cookies are coated in dark/milk chocolate. If the melted chocolate cools in between batches, reheat in the microwave at 50% power for 10-20 seconds.
  7. When all of the cookies are coated and the chocolate is firm, line another baking sheet with wax paper.
  8. Melt the white chocolate in a small bowl.
  9. Dip the bottom and/or side of a cookie into the white chocolate to create snow covered hills. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Immediately, add tree sprinkles to the white chocolate. Use a toothpick to dab a tiny bit of melted chocolate on the back of a star sprinkle, and “glue” it onto the cookie.
  10. After completing about 6 cookies, place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for a few minutes until the chocolate is set.
  11. Optional: Dip a toothpick in the melted white chocolate and add snowy details to the evergreen tree sprinkles.
  12. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

Packing Tips

Wrap each cookie in plastic wrap or a self-sealing cellophane cookie bag. Pack the individually wrapped cookies closely in a ziplock bag or plastic storage container. If using a storage container, add crumpled tissue paper between the cookies and the lid, if necessary, to prevent ANY movement while shipping.
