Tips + Variations
How to melt candy coating:
The key to melt candy wafers is to melt them at low heat and slowly.
- Microwave: This is a very quick way to heat the chocolate. I would recommend only heating enough chips to coat a few cookies at a time. Set the microwave to 50% power and heat the candy wafers in 30 second increments. Stir after every 30 seconds. Repeat until smooth.
- Stovetop: Place the candy in a small saucepan and heat over medium low heat until smooth. Stirring constantly.
- Double boiler: This is a great way to heat a larger batch of coating because the coating can stay hot without fear of it being burned. If you do not have a double boiler then you can make one using a saucepan and a metal bowl. Add 2 inches of water to the saucepan, place the metal bowl on top of the saucepan, add the candy coating to the bowl and bring the water to a boil. Once boiling you can turn down the heat. Stir until the coating is smooth.
- Look for cookies that have an oblong oval shape such as Milano cookies, Keebler EL fudge cookies, Nabisco Nutter Butter Cookie
- Instead of using mini brown M&M’s you can use candy eyeballs or even red hot candies.
- Instead of white candy coating you can also use white chocolate chips and add a bit of coconut oil to help get the chocolate smooth.
STORE cookies in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks (once the coating has hardened).
To FREEZE these cookies, let them solidify before you place them in an airtight bag in the freezer for up to 4 months. Let them thaw to room temperature before eating.
