Easy Holiday Cookies
|Source:||Kristen J. Gough|
|Prep Time:||15 minutes|
|Number of Servings:||36 cookies|
|Ingredients:||Store-bought cookies (coconut preferred; see photo below for reference)
White candy coating
Holiday sprinkles (optional)
|Directions:||Lay out sheets of waxed paper. Melt four squares of white chocolate in small, glass or ceramic, microwave-safe bowls. I use eight-ounce sized ramekins. You can also use two bowls instead of one if you want your child to have her own bowl and for you to have your own. I usually set the microwave for two minutes at half power.
While the chocolate melts, lay out a plate with the shredded coconut. Stir the melted coating with a fork. Dip a quarter to half of the cookie into the coating, and then into the coconut. Lay the cookie on the waxed paper to set. You can dip the cookie completely in the coating (meaning both sides), but you'll go through more chocolate this way. I dip so that only one-half of one-side gets submerged.
The coconut-topped coating should set within two to three minutes – then you're ready to load the holiday plates. That's it!
