Covering a Sweet Treat with Ganache, Candy Melts or Poured Icings
If treat will be covered entirely, use spatula to coat bottom of treat. Place coated side up on cooling grid until set. (Amount of time needed depends on what icing or candy is being used and how large your sweet treat is.) Turn treat over on cooling grid to position coating side down.
Pour a generous amount of ganache, melted candy or icing on center of treat. Or, pipe candy or icing from a cut decorating bag, starting at the top center of the treat and working out and down. Cover the treat completely. Lightly tap cookie pan on counter to smooth and remove excess. Let set. (Amount of time needed depends on what icing or candy is being used and how large your sweet is.)
Leftover candy or candy that has dripped off your treat that is crumb-free can be re-used. You may need to gently re-heat to re-melt the candy.
If the icing or candy isn’t perfectly smooth, or you can see through the coating, let it set, then apply a second coat of icing or candy.
