Christmas Cookie Tour of Inns, 2011
Mini peanut butter cups
Sprinkles for mouth (Wilton Jumbo Rainbow Nonpareils)
Black Sugar Pearls 78-523K for the eyes
Pretzels sticks (for arms, optional)
Plate, spoon, & wax paper
Prior to beginning, set up a station for the eyes, mouths, and noses. Since the cookie balls are cold, the chocolate hardens quickly so you must be fast. We used tweezers to place the eyes and mouths. Make "carrot" noses with orange gumdrop candy. Break off a tiny piece and shaped into a carrot nose. If your fingers get sticky, use granulated sugar to help form the nose. You can actually use sugar and a rolling pin to roll out gumdrops to form other shapes. On snowman we added a gum drop scarf as well as pretzel sticks for arms.
