My sister in law to be is making chocolate dipped cookies for wedding favors. She wants to write "Eat Me" on them and was looking for the simplest way to do that. Since she's using milk chocolate to dip them in, I told her to use white chocolate to pipe the words on so that it would dry hard and not smear in the packaging like icing would.
She is not a decorator and was looking for something more simple. I suggested trying to find a bakery that has an edible image printer and see what they would charge her to print the transfers for her. I'm not even really sure that would work on chocolate though.
So, my question is, is there a simpler way to do the writing on the chocolate dipped part of the cookie?
Thanks!

i'm not very familiar with working with chocolate ... but if she wants to skip piping all together, she can just have stickers on the packaging that says it. i like to make my own mailing or label stickers with my printer. less mess icon_wink.gif

You can get acetate and pipe the words Eat Me in white chocolate but pipe it backwards. You don't even have to pipe the words. If you have a narrow paintbrush you could paint the words. You can flip the words on your computer and print it out if it helps. Dip the cookie in chocolate and set it down over the words. Let it cool completely. When the chocolate is hard peel it off the acetate and the words will be on the cookies.

speaking of chocolate, has anyone applied edible images on chocolate? What do you use to stick it onto the chocolate without having it affect the chocolate?

I've only used chocolate transfer sheets. They come in dozens of designs. I think they are made of cocoa powder but they usually have gold or silver designs too.

Right. The transfer sheets are made of cocoa butter and only transfer that design. The frosting sheets, however, are paper-like and need to adhere to the chocolate.

You can use stencils on chocolate.
