I've only used candy melts to dip cookies.

I've done them with spritz cookies and I also used them for my cornmeal sugar cookies that I cut with a heart shape cookie cutter. I just dipped them half way.

Someone else may have more experience with flooding with them. I would think it could be done, you just have to be pretty quick to get a nice smooth base or do a small size cookie.

Any roll out cookie should work fine!

I don't know if candy melts would work on cookies but you can try!! The NFSC (No fail sugar cookie recipe) is excellent for cookies that are icied with royal icing etc...It is located in the recipe section here on CC....

I have put chocolate on cookies by placing a candy melt on top as soon as the cookie comes out of the oven. Aftre a few minutes, you can spread the melted candy coating to ice the cookie. Haven't tried any complicated designs, but for "just icing", it works nicely.

Check out the book "The Artful Cookie" by Aaron Morgan. If memory serves, he has a section in the book on decorating cookies using CandyMelts. All in all, it's a nice little book!

We use candy melts in the cookie class that I teach -- we make peppermint patties out of them and also use the chocolate to outline and flood pix on cookies proper.

bobwonderbuns,

do you just melt the candy melts and then use them or do you need to add anything to that? After the outline and flooding can you add any details with the chocolate? Or will they break off?

TIA

I just use the candy melts and LorAnn oils and the paramount crystals. You can outline and flood if you like but for these I just dunk and let set.
