Instructions

To Make the Chicks

  • Melt the yellow candy melts according to package directions. (If the candy is too thick, stir in a little shortening or vegetable oil to thin.) Dip the mini cookies into the candy and tap off the excess. Lay on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet and chill to harden.
  • Melt a small amount of orange candy melts and place them in a small squeeze bottle or pastry bag. (I fitted my squeeze bottle with a #2 tip for this step.) Make triangle beaks on each chick and let harden. To make the feet, pipe two triangles about 1/4" apart on waxed paper. Connect the fat ends of the triangles with a line of orange candy. Place the cookie chick standing up on top of the piped feet and let harden. Draw dots for eyes.

To make the Eggs

  • Melt your white (or pink or whatever color eggs you want) candy melts. Place a spoonful in each mold and use the spoon to swipe the candy up the sides of the mold so the egg is covered. Chill to harden. Place the extra melted candy in a squeeze bottle or pastry bag fitted with a #1 or a #2 tip.
  • Pop the egg shells out of your mold (careful now!). Place a chick in the bottom half of the mold. Pipe melted candy around the edge of the shell and place the top half on top. Fill in any holes with melted candy and let harden. Decorate tops as desired.
