I am show and tell for a Kindergarten class for Halloween and will be decorating cookies with the kids. I don't usually do sticks, but thought I would for this. What is the most secure method?

I'm aware of three options: bake the stick right into the cookie, insert the stick as soon as the cookies come out of the oven, and attach the stick to the baked cookie with either royal icing or melted chocolate (this can also be done by attaching the stick to the bag that covers the cookie).

I prefer to bake them into the cookie. I lay the stick on the cookie sheet, cover with the cut-out, and gently press the dough around the stick. The plus is that it is all done quickly. The negative is that you can't bake as many cookies on the sheet. Whatever you decide, just be comfortable with the method and you'll do fine!

Thanks so much for the info. I think I will go with baking the cookies with the sticks!

If the kids do any of them, you might want to "glue" sticks on with RI or melted choc.

The kids will be doing cookies. I assume that will make them less likely to come loose?

Thanks for your help!!

Speaking from my own experience, it will be much less frustrating for them to do it that way. However, I'm no pro.
