  • How to decorate a seasonal cookie. Sugar Skull Chocolate Covered Cookies - Step 1
    Step 1

    In a microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate discs in 60 second intervals and stir constantly in between each. If working with multiple colors, I suggest focusing on one at a time because the chocolate tends to harden quickly. If the chocolate is too thick, add a tsp. of vegetable or coconut oil to it. This will thin it out and provide a smooth finish.

    Dip each individual cookie into the melted chocolate and use a spoon to make sure each side is evenly coated. If you have a small rubber spatula on hand, it’s the perfect tool to scoop out the cookie while allowing the excess chocolate to drip off. If not, a fork will do the trick.

    Carefully place each cookie on a piece of parchment or wax paper. Immediately sprinkle with sugar or sprinkles. Don’t worry if the bottom edges are messy. Once they have hardened and the chocolate has set, you can break away most of the little jagged pieces left behind.

    Put a small dab of melted chocolate on the back of the edible Sugar Skull decorations and place one in the center of each cookie. Refrigerate for about 5-7 minutes or until chocolate has hardened.
