I haven't decorated cookies in years & now someone asked me to make cookies decorated with numbers.  They want choc chip which as I recall has to be decorated on the back of cookie in order to have a smooth surface.  I do have a plastic mold for numbers that would be small enough to fit on a cookie but I don't have fondant which is what I think is used in the mold.  Does anyone have any suggestions what I could use to make numbers?  Chocolate is too dark for choc chip cookie.  I don't have a steady enough hand to pipe it on.  thanks for your help.

ACan you make fondant or modeling chocolate? There are lots of recipes on this site if you use the search bar.

Thanks for reply.  We think alike, I've been making modeling chocolate & hoping it works in this hard plastic mold I have.

I've used this recipe from KarensCookies site that uses mini chocolate chips and got a pretty smooth surface on the top:


You can definitely use modeling chocolate/candy clay in a silicone mold.


Or, you can do something similar to a royal icing transfer but use your melted chocolate.


Good luck.

here is a link to a recipe for chocolate chip cut-out-cookies.  Make them just like regular cookies & cut out with any cutter (without any long thin edges like spider legs).

decorate as normal.
