Remember a few weeks ago when I hosted the #PampersFirsts Baby Shower with some of my close girlfriends and their little bundles? We had an absolute blast and it was by far one of the most fun parties I have ever thrown. I went completely overboard on the food and decorations - but hey, it's what you when its your besties having babies!
The biggest hit of the day - both in cuteness and in taste - were the Milano Cookie Babies. They were super simple to make and were absolutely delicious. All you need is four ingredients and a little bit of time to make a cute and memorable snack! In fact - these were gone so quickly I did not get any great pictures - so please forgive that!
Milano Cookie Babies
- Carton of Milano Cookies - either size works great! I used the minis.
- White candy melts
- Food coloring
- Chocolate decorators icing
Start by melting your white candy melts in a large bowl. You want it to be deep enough that you can dip your cookies in to make the "diapers." Gently dip each cookie about ⅓ in to the white candy melts and place on a foil or wax paper lined cookie sheet to let cool completely.
While they are cooling, add a few drops of food coloring to the white candy melts to make the "hats" of your choice. Since we had both boy and girl babies at this party (well... one little girl who arrived 48 hours later) I mixed up a bowl of pink and blue. When the cookies have cooled completely, gently dip the other end of the cookies in to the colored candy melts and place back on the cookie sheet to cool.
When candy melt has completely cooled, pipe on two little dots for eyes using the chocolate icing and voila!
