Step 1 First, you start by making the cookies. Prepare cookie dough following your favorite recipe. After you bake the cookies, remove them from the oven and immediately press bright white, yellow, pink or lavender Candy Melts candy wafers, flat side up, onto each cookie. Allow to cool completely.  Chill for 10 minutes to allow Candy Melts candy to completely set.

Step 2 Then, melt the Candy Melts candy wafers. Separately, melt 28g each black, lavender and orange candy.  Separately melt 57g bright white, yellow and pink candy.  Form a parchment bag by cutting a triangle from parchment sheet, and create a small hole cut, about 0.1 cm.

Step 3 Finally, you can decorate the cookies by giving each cookie its own personality. Use melted candy to pipe details on cookies.  Chill to set, about 5 minutes.
