I have used candy melts numerous times to decorate cookies (see my piggy pop...it's all candy melts. The cookie bouquets are iced in royal and the outlines are done in candy melts). I can't say it's easy though. Lately I have been having melting issues with the candy melts, and it's definitely not easy to flood a completely smooth surface (again see the piggy pop!). I used the little mini squeeze bottles they sell at AC Moore. I do have to admit that I prefer royal icing just because it's so much easier to control.

I add melted white chocolate candy melts to the cookie glaze recipe and it is really good. You outline, flood, and decorate just like with royal icing or glaze.

That sounds great! Do you have a recipe or a ratio that you use?

I decorate cookies with candy melts all the time - yummy! The absolute easiest way is to make candy clay out of the candy melts (add 1/3 C light corn syrup to about 12 oz. of the melted candy melts, mix well, then turn it out on plastic and let it set up about 15 minutes. Then you can wrap it up and use it when you need it - heat it up on 50% power in the microwave for a few seconds). You can roll it out and cut it with the same cookie cutter you used for the cookies, then decorate with more cut outs as if it were fondant. And you don't even have to color it since candy melts come in so many fun colors.

I would love to share! I found this recipe on the Wilton discussion boards.

Cookie/Petit Four Icing

Blend together well with mixer:
2 lbs. powdered sugar
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1/2 c. water + more for thinning as needed
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla (or flavoring of choice)
1/4 tsp. salt

When smooth add:
1/4 pound melted candy melts

Again, mix until well blended, always at low to medium low speed. Pour generously over cake squares or cookies placed on a rack. You can also use icing to draw, paint, outline, flood or add detail on cookies or cakes. It dries so that the cookies/cakes can be stacked and bagged. But when eaten they are still soft on the inside, unlike royal icing.

Store in frig.

If doing two coats on petit fours let the first coat dry completely. Let the icing set before adding other decorations or they will slide off.

Because of the candy melts in this recipe I use the Make n Mold colors or the CK powdered colors. I'm not sure if you can use regular paste colors. If anyone tries the regular paste colors please let me know how it goes.
