Saw these cuties on the internet one day and thought they'd be great as door prizes for our Kempo Awards Ceremony. Only used a half sheet cake for all of these 12 total, (decorating was a little time consuming but, fun).
My favorite chocolate to work with is Ghirardelli because it just gives chocolate cake such a rich flavor.
Got the idea for these from "Bakerella" as I was looking at her blog one day and thought they were pretty cute too. These are coconut Almond Sugar cookies, she suggested peppermint but...I'm not too fond of peppermint cookies. Bakerella also has an awesome royal icing recipe and this one turned out PERFECT!
