Ladybug Cookies

These adorable ladybug cookies are a perfect (and easy) treat for Valentine's day!

Yields24 Servings
 1 24 ct. Package of Sandwich Cookies
 12 oz Bag of Red Candy Melts
 12 oz Bag Dark Chocolate Melts
 1 Package of Small Edible Candy Eyes
 1 Package Mini Pink Heart Sprinkles
 2 tbsp Coconut Oil
 1 Disposable Piping Bag
 Parchment Paper
 Cookie Sheet
 2 Pots
1

Using a double boiler method, fill half of the bottom pot with water. Once the water is boiling, place another pot on top. Pour the red candy melts into the top pot.

2

Using a rubber spatula, stir constantly until melted. Mix in 2 tbsp of coconut oil and stir again until completely smooth.

3

Using a fork, submerge the sandwich cookie completely into the red candy melt. Lightly remove any excess candy melt by tapping the cookie on the side of the pot and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat these steps with the remaining cookies. Let dipped cookies harden for about an hour in the fridge before continuing to the next step.

4

Once the red-covered cookies are completely cooled and hardened, melt the dark chocolate using the double boiler again. Dip only the top of the cookie into the chocolate for the face of the ladybug. While the dipped dark chocolate is still warm, place two eyes onto the center of the dipped chocolate section for the eyes of the ladybug. Place back on the lined cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining cookies.

5

Next, scoop the melted dark chocolate into the disposable piping bag and cut a very small amount off the tip of the bag for precise decorating. Pipe a straight line down the center of the red part of the cookie, making wings. Then, alternate small chocolate dots around on the ladybug’s wings. Place mini pink hearts onto some of the small chocolate dots. Place the finished cookies back on the cookie sheet and return to the fridge to let the ladybugs cool completely.
