Confectionary coating and delicious accessories keep these cute little sandwich cookie bears warm and ready to bring smiles and laughter to dessert time!
6 sandwich cookies
3 mini sandwich cookies
White confectionary melts
3 Mini marshmallows
Black food decorator pen
6 Black sugar pearls
3 Airheads bars (your choice of colors – 1 bar makes about 2 hats)
3 Airheads Xtreme belts (1 belt makes 2 scarves)
Small kitchen shears
Take one of the sandwich cookies and position the top of it on one of the Airheads bars.
Use a knife to cut around the cookie to create a hat.
Create five more hats using this technique and set the hats aside.
Untwist the mini sandwich cookies and stick one half to the bottom edge of each sandwich cookie (if there isn’t enough cream to make the mini cookie half stick, use some of the melted candy as an adhesive).
In a microwaveable bowl, melt the candy melts until they achieve a dipping consistency.
Dip the tops of the sandwich cookies into the candy melts and place on a plate covered with waxed paper.
Position a black sugar pearl onto the top of the mini cookie (this will serve as the nose).
Place the plate into the freezer for about 5 minutes.
Dip the end of a toothpick into the candy melts and brush some onto the top of each cookie.
Place a hat onto each of the cookies.
Cut each of the marshmallows in half and place one of the halves onto the top of each of the sandwich cookies (the marshmallows serve as the tassel to the hat).
Use the black food decorator pen to draw the eyes and face.
Cut the belts in half lengthwise and then cut slits into each end of the 6 pieces.
Place some of the melted candy onto the middles of the belts and press the belt together to form a scarf.
Allow the scarves to cool.
Brush some melted candy onto the bottom of the sandwich cookies and adhere the scarves.
Place into the freezer for about 5 minutes or until set.
Remove and store cookies in an airtight container to keep fresh.
