Supplies for Dipped Chocolate Cookies


  • white chocolate candy melts
  • gel food coloring
  • spoon
  • cooling grid
  • scones or cookies (store-bought or homemade)


Step 1 // Melt the chocolate

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 color to chocolate

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 chocolate

Step 3: Dip each cookie or scone into the melted chocolate and place on a cooling grid to harden.

Step 4 // Dip cookies in chocolate

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.
