Double Dipped Sandwich Cookies

By

Have you seen how expensive these coated sandwich cookies are in the bakery? They're very easy to make, and fun for your kids too. Try them this holiday season!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 30 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz. pkg. white chocolate chips
  • 30 sandwich cookies (chocolate or vanilla)
  • 12 oz. pkg. semisweet chocolate chips
  • decorator frostings, sprinkles

Preparation:

Place all but 1/2 cup of the semisweet chocolate chips in a 2-cup microwave-safe glass measuring cup. Microwave on full power for 2 minutes; remove and stir. Continue microwaving at 100% power for 1 minute intervals, stirring after each interval, until chocolate is melted. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips until they are melted and smooth.

Place all but 1/3 cup of the white chocolate chips in another 2-cup microwave-safe glass measuring cup (or small microwave-safe bowl). Microwave on 50% power for 2 minutes; remove and stir. Continue microwaving at 50% power for 1 minute intervals, stirring after each interval, until chocolate is melted. Stir in remaining 1/3 cup white chocolate chips until they are melted and smooth. Set aside.

Line cookie sheets with waxed paper or parchment paper. Dip cookies, one at a time, into white or semisweet chocolate. Have fun with this part - dip half a cookie into the white chocolate, then another half into the semisweet chocolate. Or dip into one kind of chocolate, chill until set, then dip again into the other chocolate. You can also drizzle the contrasting chocolate over the set dipped cookies in patterns, like Christmas trees, stars, and bells. Sprinkle with colored sugars or non pareils or decorate with decorator frostings. You may need to reheat the chocolates by microwaving at 30% power for 30 seconds or so if it thickens or begins to harden during the dipping process.

Place the dipped cookies onto the lined cookie sheets and let stand until set (you may need to refrigerate the cookies to harden the chocolate depending on the weather).
