Okay, after yelling at my computer for the past half hour trying to get this to work....Here are the cookies that I made using White Chocolate modeling clay. They are soooo darn good. I have eaten all of those you see there! icon_redface.gificon_razz.gif The chocolate is the perfect consistency too. It hasn't hardened...its nice and soft to bite into but it isn't smooshy at all so you can stack them if you need to. Enjoy!! Oh yeah, I used luster dust to make it all shiny!

Those look great!! I need to try them - did you make the clay or buy premade?

Did you use luster dust to make them shiny, or is that just a quality of the chocolate clay??

mconrey - I used luster dust on the clay.

look at this recipe for the BEST Sugar cookies! They came out PERFECTLY!!!!

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-2055-4-No-Fail-Sugar-Cookies.html

so, you should also have eggs, baking powder salt and vanilla extract, and luster dust if you want to dust your chocolate thats up to you. BC to attach the chocolate to the cookie then have a little chocolate chips left over to melt to attach the decorations.

Well, I let the cookies cool then I put a layer of BC on top of the cookie then layed the large layer of chocolate down. Then to attach the decorations on top I used melted chocolate. The BC worked perfectly and the melted chocolate works like cement...even on the pearls I used melted chocolate.

loveqm Posted 31 Jan 2007 , 11:01pm

thanks! I can't wait to try these out... will pot pix when I do... & I'm gonna apologize now for all the questions I will bombard you with later....heehee =)

katy625 Posted 31 Jan 2007 , 11:04pm

IF YOU DON"T HAVE BC ON HAND, Ive been told that you can attach the chocolate to the cookies with CORN SYRUP!!!!! Supposedly this does work and was used in a class setting so if you don't want to go through the mess of making BC, try that first!!

KHalstead Posted 31 Jan 2007 , 11:13pm

thanks so much!!!

lilkimberb Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 12:44am

those are great. Do you have to use chocolate chips or can you use candy melts? Just a thought, it would save time in the coloring process!!!

From what ive been told you can use the candy melts but I haven't tried it. I would just have to experiment with a bag.

katy625 Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 1:38am

BTW!! I dry brushed the luster dust on the chocolate. I haven't tried "painting" it on yet with the vodka luster dust mixture. I dont' know how it will react to the chocolate. You may not have to use vodka because it makes a good coverage on the chocolate.

alysmom09 Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 1:40am

I love this idea....Thank you so much for sharing....I am gonna have to try this. They are very pretty icon_smile.gif

baergarivera Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 1:42am

LOVE YOUR COOKIES THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL GREAT JOB. WOULD LOVE TO MAKE THEM BUT NOT GOOD AT MAKING COOKIES.
YOU DID A SUPER JOB

Katskakes Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 1:49am

Just in case, here is the recipe for the chocolate clay.
http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-1608-0-Chocolate-Clay-Modeling-Chocolate.html
I have never tried making it myself, in class it was already done.
as katy625 mentioned, you can attach the chocolate clay w/corn syrup. That's how i did it.

Sweetpeeps Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 1:54am

Alright this seems like a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyway. I've done nfsc with fondant. I put the fondant on the cookies as soon as the came out of the oven. It kept me from having to use any adhesive. Do you think this would melt the chocolate to much leaving me with a mess? Thanks so much for sharing!

MariaLovesCakes Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 1:57am

This is what I was wanting to try but the candy melts. I saw in one of Wilton Yearbooks where they suggest that you use candy melts to cover the cookies.

I was thinking that maybe I could flatten the candy melts on parchment or wax paper, let it dry and then cut out the shapes to fit the cookies.

Mmmmm,, ideas, ideas...!

ValMommytoDanny Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 2:06am

Great looking cookies, I will have to give it a try...
thanks!

tayesmama Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 2:07am

ooooo, I will definitely have to experiment! I love how "chocolate & sugar cookies" sound! Yum, yum!

nefgaby Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 2:09am

HI, just a question regarding the cookie recipe you used, did it keep its shape when baked as well as the NFSC? Thanks, lovely cookies, can´t wait to try them!

Sweetpeeps Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 2:15am

Sorry I don't feel like I made sense earlier. Ok, when I did the fondant on the cookies straight out of the oven it melted the fondant just enought to make it adhere to the cookies and get a nice smooth finish on them. Do you think this would work with the chocolate?

PistachioCranberry Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 2:37am

I know that in chocolate there are different percentages of cacao, so my question about the chocolate clay recipe is if I used a richer chocolate than semisweet would the results still be the same?

this is something I will have to test. Part of me thinks that the heat would melt the chocolate. I was actually going to test this out today but I couldn't make the time. I WILL TRY though because I have A LOT of dough left over! Also, the NFSC kept their shape perfectly!! I think that is the most awesome recipe! I have NEVER EVER been able to make sugar cookies right. This recipe really works!

Also, I don't see why dark chocolate wouldn't work. White chocolate works fine, semi sweet works fine......another experiment!!!

CarolinaBelle Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 4:41am

The cookies look great! I will have to give the chocolate a try.

cookiecreations Posted 1 Feb 2007 , 4:57am

Katy625 your cookies look fantastic and so YUMMY! I've made the choc clay before but never tried it on cookies. I'll definitely try this!! Awesome job!

I've used the dark and milk chocolate to make choc clay before and someone mentioned in another thread they used semi sweet choc and it worked great! Always fun to experiment with chocolate thumbs_up.gif

It is the same exact thing as corn syrup.
