POLAR BEAR COOKIE
1. Twist open 16 regular cookies and all mini cookies so that frosting is on one side and there’s one empty chocolate cookie for every pair. Separate the cookies into two piles, frosted and unfrosted.
2. Place one frosted half in front of you. Take two mini unfrosted halves and place them on the top edge of the frosted regular-sized cookie so that they’re peeking out like ears. Place another frosted regular cookie on top, sandwiching the “ears” in between the fillings.
3. Use one frosted side of the mini cookie and place it in the center of the top cookie, frosting side down, to make the “snout.”
4. Dip entire cookie creature in white chocolate and let it cool on wax paper in the fridge, about 15 minutes.
5. Use a toothpick to apply a dot of melted chocolate to “glue” the candy eyes and mini M&M nose in place.
1. Dip one whole sandwich cookie in melted white chocolate. Tap to remove excess chocolate, then place on wax paper on baking sheet and chill in the fridge until chocolate is set, about 15 minutes.
2. Remove chilled cookies from fridge and dip one third of each cookie in melted dark chocolate. Tap to remove excess chocolate, then place on wax paper on baking sheet and chill in the fridge until chocolate is set, 5-10 minutes.
3. Remove chilled cookies from fridge. Turn the cookies and dip the other ⅓ in dark chocolate so the thirds overlap and leave a triangle of white chocolate peeking through at the bottom. Refrigerate to set again.
4. Use a toothpick to apply a dot of melted chocolate to “glue” the candy eyes.
5. Pipe a beak with orange frosting.
