Ballet Slipper Cookies

I needed to come up with an easy snack for our ballet class end-of-year party, and I think these pink slippers are ballerina perfect!

I am so tickled with this idea and hope my ballet slipper cookies will be appearing at ballet recitals and birthday parties all over! They are tutu cute and certain to bring a standing ovation from your favorite prima ballerinas. Please let me know if you try them!

To make these sweet ballet slipper cookies, melt a 14-ounce bag of pink Wilton Candy Melts in a double boiler according to package directions. Use tongs to dip Nutter Butters in the melted candy and place the cookies on a freezer-safe wax-paper covered plate. Use a knife or small icing spatula to smooth the melted candy as needed. Place the cookie plate in the freezer for a few minutes to harden the candy coating. Then use a paring knife to shave away any drips. Fill a decorating bag fitted with a small round tip with canned vanilla frosting, and pipe on the finishing details. Place the completed ballet slippers in the freezer to harden the icing. Yield: 12 pairs of ballet slippers.

Don't know if I'll ever need ballet slippers :) so, I'm racking my brain to think of something boyish! Great idea!

I was so excited when I saw your blog! I made the ballet slipper cookies for the celebration following my daughter's dance recital and they were a huge hit. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy they were to make. I had no previous experience with candy melts, but it was easy to work with. I posted pictures on my blog and gave you credit. Thank you again!
