kid art sugar cookies....!

kid art cookies i don't do a ton of decorated cookies...well because i'm not really all that good at them.....but i love love love these....

....because they're not really done by's my kiddos' recent artwork....! know all those pics that you keep because it's really cool and you don't have the heart to toss you keep piles and piles of drawings and other artwork that they do...and the stacks then seem take up your entire spare room after awhile.....

....well as an alternative.....decided to create some edible pieces of their recent drawings....and since i'm blogging about keeps it forever (the internet is forever, right?).....these are made from candy melt....just add whatever colors you need to a zip lock baggie....snip a small part of one of the ends and trace the art over a some parchment paper (wax paper works as well)......if you need to layer colors....just wait til the first layer dries before adding color on can find more detailed directions here....(i do this all the time!)

....and let dry.....

....then add on top of some iced sugar cookies (i did this the easy way and used a boxed sugar cookie mix --use the rolled cookie directions.....roll out dough and cut cookies large enough to fit the artwork.....)....frost with your fav sugar cookie icing....then add the candy melt image on top before totally dry.....

...these are my 7 year old's ninjas.....!
