You could always dip the choco chip cookies in chocolate and make them look like wedding dresses or tuxes like you'd do for strawberries. That would look neat and of course taste yummie - If too much chocolate (if there is such a thing icon_wink.gif ) Just dip half of the cookie is chocolate and maybe some sprinkles? How formal is the wedding - that might help with the design/decoration.

IMO modeling chocolate (aka candy clay) tastes best on the 'standard' chocolate chip cookie. What type of a decoration are you planning to do? the reason I ask is a simple rose looks nice. Unless you are using a rolled chocolate chip cookie recipe it's tough to get something nice and smooth on the cookie. There is a recipe for rolled on karenscookies.net that turns out flat.

I made three chocolate chip cake cookies and used royal icing for the design they needed. It was easy to use, and everybody loved it. I think fondant might be to much sweet.

Those are really pretty cookies in your album! With a flat rolled choc chip cookie, I think you are better off using candy clay (aka modeling chocolate). It will compliment the chocolate chips in the cookie. You can always add a bit of fondant to the clay and mix well for longer workability.

IMHO - don't think RI or fondant will be as tasty. Or you could add chocolate oil to flavor the fondant.

Regardless - post your pics - you make great cookies!

The cookies look terrific! I think you made the right decision going with chocolate. Like the double hearts!
