Can candy melts or melted chocolate be used to decorate sugar cookies instead of fondant or royal icing?

A friend of mine uses candy melts on her sugar cookies all the time. She uses them not only to decorate the cookies, but she also uses them to attach sticks when she makes cookie boquets. She swears by them! HTH

So, do you pipe with it like royal icing?

My friend just uses the disposable decorator bags - no tip. She usually does something like outlining and filling in flowers, circles, smiley faces, etc... But I suppose that you could use a tip, depending on the consistency of your candy melts. I'd be worried about the melts cooling in the tip (more work to clean!).
