Decorated White Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Hi friends! Since it's March and almost springtime (thank goodness!) I thought I would bring you a pretty & delicious way to decorate my yummy sugar cookies. I made aqua glittered white chocolate sugar cookies, like the one on the left, for our daughter, Chelsea's wedding in March 2011. At the end of the day, when we were cleaning up, we could only find one cookie favor left on the tables, so I think they were a hit!

Make the sugar cookies (recipe below) but instead of rolling out the dough use a cookie scooper. Also, you won't need to make the frosting like with the Giant Shamrock & Christmas Sugar Cookies. Allow the cookies to cool, then place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.

Put the white chocolate melting discs in to the glass measuring. Place it in the microwave and microwave for 1 minute at power 3. Stir and repeat a few times until the chocolate is smooth and just melted. Click here for more tips on melting chocolate.

Put the melted white chocolate in a squeeze bottle and drizzle it in a circlular pattern. Next, while the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle the edible glitter on top. I used aqua & purple and left some of the cookies without glitter for a nice contrast.

Here they are side by side. So pretty for weddings, birthday gifts, Easter parties or Mother's Day!

If you have some melted white chocolate leftover you can make some white chocolate pretzel bark. Just crush up some pretzels, stir them in, place on wax paper and spread out. Allow to set until the chocolate is firm and then break into pieces. I love the sweet and salty contrast of white chocolate & pretzels - YUM!
