How fun are these easy Halloween sugar cookies? Using Candy Melts Candy and your favorite roll out sugar cookie dough plus some crazy cute and edible candy eyeballs, these treats make an easy dessert for any treat bag, Halloween party or just for something fun to decorate with your friends or family!
Using Wilton’s Mega Cookie Sheet, bake sugar cookies according to directions.
Remove cookies from oven; while still warm, immediately place one Lavender Candy Melt disc at center of each cookie round side up. Place two candy eyeballs at the top of each disc.
Let cookies cool on pan, about five minutes. Carefully move cookies to cooling grid; cool completely about 20 to 30 minutes.
Place Lavender Candy Melts Candy in disposable decorating bag, melt in microwave according to directions on the package. Cut small hole in tip; pipe four legs on each spider. Chill until set, about 10 to 15 minutes.
Hold bag at a 45° angle and touch tip to the surface. Squeeze at starting point so that icing sticks to surface. Now raise tip slightly, and as you squeeze, guide tip slightly above surface. To end outline, stop squeezing, touch tip to surface and pull tip away. After outline, fill in using a zigzag motion to fill area. Pat smooth using finger dipped in cornstarch.
Perfect for classic borders or cloudlike decorations, dots are a versatile technique that can be piped in a range of sizes. The dot technique can be used as a simple border for cakes and cookies, as well as for icing cupcakes or piping meringues.
Striking drama and great dimension can be added to gingerbread with the creative touches of zigzags. Just a simple back and forth motion can form beautiful drifts of snow on roofs, eaves, windowsills, and borders for doors.
An architectural flair and welcoming appeal can be achieved by adding artistic windowpanes to a gingerbread house. Beautiful small paned windows, front bay windows and even cathedral windows can be made in a few easy steps.
