I want to make some simple fall cookies for thanksgiving..most of them will be colored by using colored sugar, i know that can go in the oven BUT>>> i want to top the acorn cookies with the chocolate jimmies, should they be applied before or after baking?
Also, should i coat the cookie dough with something before spinkling on both the jimmies/sugar to make it stay better.

Jimmies are made of wax so yes they will melt. Even if you had real chocolate jimmies they would melt. Always do them after they come out of the oven

Thanks...i'm sooo glad i asked! That would've been a bummer if i ruined my hard work with a silly error. How best are they applied later?

you need to apply a thin glaze or frosting so that the jimmies will stick... to make things really simple you could just mix powdered sugar and milk to make a glaze and dye it tan, paint the tops of the acorns with it and then sprinkle while the glaze is still sticky...have fun!
