- white chocolate candy melts
- gel food coloring
- cooling grid
- scones or cookies (store-bought or homemade)
Step 1: Start by melting the chocolate, according to the instructions on the packaging. I melted mine in the microwave on 50% power and in 30 second intervals until melted, stirring between each interval.
Step 2: Add food coloring and stir until fully incorporated. I used blue gel food coloring and created a lighter blue for this first round so I could darken it up for the second color-block layer.
Step 3: Dip each cookie or scone into the melted chocolate and place on a cooling grid to harden.
Step 4: Once the chocolate on the dipped cookies has hardened completely, mix in additional food coloring to darken up what is left of the melted chocolate and dip the cookies a second time for a monochromatic color-blocked look.
Step 5: Place the cookies back on the cooling grid until the chocolate has hardened and they’re ready to eat.
