Is this like the method that Dawn did?
Once again, you are a remarkable woman with talents that you keep hidden from us...naughty, naughty, naughty; just for this, you lose one of those nuts
Keep your paws off my nuts, repeat...Haha!
Yes, it is done exactly the same way you do a buttercream transfer like Dawn did the tutorial for, except you are using melted candy melts and you don't need to refrigerate or freeze to set. Some people on the site also use these and attach them to cookies instead of using royal icing.
You can also make any kind of decoration in the same manner, the work you would normally do with royal icing, like lattice hearts, things like that, instead can be made from the candy melts and they are less fragile and are not affected by buttercream. You can make Princess tiaras, just tape the pattern and parchment around a large can to shape while you do them, same idea, except for the tiara, and the lattice hearts and such you are going to use the up side as the good side, not the down side.
