Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbprint cookies using Wilton melts OMG! These are SO good! And easy to make! I roll the dough balls in Christmas sugars/sprinkles before placing on cookie sheet, then coordinate colored melts to the sugar colors. They make a very festive cookie on your Christmas plate, and VERY delicious, bakery quality, imho.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are great and so easy to make for different occasions depending on the color of the candy melts you use. Pink and white for baby showers, green and red for Christmas. Also, it is really fun to have others (even little ones) help you with the candy melts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were a great hit at a baby shower, I hosted. I used gumdrops for the center. I made several different kinds of cookies (sugar, peanut butter, and snickerdoodle cookies).
