A few more notes:

  • The video clips for these chocolate cookies are fast forwarded to shorten the video.
  • I collected chocolate boxes after Christmas to place the cookies in and bought a black box as well.
  • The liners are cupcake liners and can be found here; brown or white.
  • Some of the chocolates pictured in the photos are wrapped in mini cellophane bags. I’m freezing those to use for a fundraising event in February. The rest are already given away to family, friends and students.

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE THESE!!!! They really do look like candies! And I have questions–what size are most of the cookies? They look tiny. And did you use the mini cupcake liners or the regular sized ones? I am in love with these!

      Thanks Kathy! The cookies are mini, they fit in the mini cupcake liners. I have a link in the post where I mention a few notes. The cookies in the brown liners are a bit larger than the ones in the white liners, ranging from about an inch (2.5 cm) to 2 inches (5 cm) for a few larger ones.

    They are great! Do you outline and flood with the same consistency? Was your flood icing really only 5 second? Thanks!!

      Thanks Barb! The outside was 10 second and the inside was a runny icing, my 5 second icing.

    I had been waiting for you to post something for valentine’s! OMG I love these and they are perfect! These are exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something different from all the Llamas, lattes, donuts and hearts out there. I also love doing minis. These are simple, sweet yet just elegant….just like you Marian. Always love everything you do! Thank you!

    Marian, these are absolutely stunning!
    I picture husbands buying such for their wives 🙂

    They are made with L O V E, this is exactly how they look like.
    Seeing the video makes me happy, how the cookies all come together, how you pipe with such perfection!
    I enjoyed it so so much.

    God bless you and your talent.
    Love, niner
