These Elmo cookies could very well be the cutest things I have ever made. I am so happy with them, and I put together this post (and a video) to show I did it).
Not are they cutest cookies, but they very well could be the easiest cookies I have ever made.
First things first – melt your candy melts (in a bowl) in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Don’t over cook them. Sometimes you have to let them sit for a minute before you get a good consistency (this isn’t like regular chocolate).
Take your Oreos and coat them in the liquefied candy melts.
I tossed mine over a cooling rack with parchment laid under it. Let them harden for a few minutes.
The sprinkle step has two options:
Option 1: sprinkle over top and push down.
Option 2: dunk in a bowl of sprinkles. I found this step to be the most effective, but the downside was the sprinkles underneath made it uneven on a flat surface (you’re just going to eat them anyway – not everyone takes photos of their food like I do).
Add the candy googly eyes while the candy coating is setting. Not when it’s first coated because they will fall and not when it’s hard because they won’t stick.
The last step is the smile! I found this to be the most difficult step, I did a happy face in black frosting and then tried to spread it to look like an open smile (like Elmo’s) with a knife.
I recommend dunking, but give the cookie a few minutes to harden just a bit. Otherwise, it slides around and gets a bit heavy for the sprinkles to stay on.
There is so much potential with these, I’ll be doing some Oscar The Grouch cookies next (stay tuned).
These no bake cookies would be great for kids parties, especially a Sesame Street themed birthday or pre school class party!
