whoopie cookies with homemade rainbow chips....!


...so although st paddy's day has come and gone.....i still think rainbow stuff works pretty much any time of the year!

.....ok and i know these are really just filled sandwich cookies....but i was thinking of making whoopie pies but ran out of time and decided to do sugar cookies.....so i'm going with "whoopie cookies"...!

...take your fav sugar cookie recipe (or in my case i used a boxed mix to speed this up) but did make some rainbow vanilla chips....i used candy melt/wafers in all different colors....


....just melt in a zip lock bag...snip off an end and "pipe" chips....super simple because i've done green tea chips here....

...but i was chatting with someone on instagram (which i love!...find me @sugarswings there!)....if you don't have access to different colored candy melts then you can use white chocolate and tint with an oil based food coloring or powdered food coloring (when i made them before here, i used matcha green tea powder to tint them...the color ended up being a really pretty natural green color)....

...but if you need to have candy melts in every color (like me!)....then you end up with a bowl of rainbow chips which were then added to the sugar cookie mix.....


.....and also had some left over swiss meringue buttercream so decided to make sandwich cookies aka whoopie cookies!....sounds more fun than "sandwich cookies"....right??

  5. so fun, I never buy coloured melts, I get the 50 pound box of white melts and colour them. You can also by a thing from americolor that makes any water based food colour work with chocolate:)

  12. ahh, i love your chips! I tried to make the green tea ones and they came out as misshapen blobs--but at least they were chip sized. How do you make everything so perfect? :[

  18. Love the idea for the homemade rainbow chips because it's a great way to use up those small quantities of candy melts that I can't bring myself to get rid of. LOL So it's a great recycling tip! :)
