How to Make Christmas Wreath Cookies

Step 1: Start by putting the pinwheel cookies in the freezer to harden up before decorating.

Step 2: Next, pull apart the Twizzlers so you have 12 individual strings. Tie each one into a small bow and set these aside.

Step 3: Melt the green wafers using the package directions. Do not overheat.

Step 4: Then, take the cookies out of the freezer. Doing so one at a time, hold a pinwheel upside down and dip it into the green chocolate to coat just the top of the cookie, then place it on a cooling rack.

Step 5: Before the chocolate hardens, place one bow on the top of the wreath and add Christmas-colored sprinkles to the rest of the cookie. Repeat this process for each cookie.

Storage and Re-heating Notes

These cookies store well and be made ahead of time!

IN THE FRIDGE: Store these cookies wrapped in the fridge and enjoy for up to 3 days. 

IN THE FREEZER: Store these cookies in the freezer for up to 3 months in a sealed container.
