Spin and twirl like the Sugarplum Fairy with these Easy “Land of Sweets” Nutcracker Wafer Cookies!
What you’ll need:
- Wax paper
- Wafer cookies
- Melting chocolates (I used pink, purple and blue for a whimsical “Land of Sweets” inspired color palette)
- Black sparkle gel
- Airheads (red & white)
Step 1: Meltdown chocolates and cover wafer cookie on all sides a little more than halfway up. Set on wax paper to dry.
Step 2: To make the hat for your Nutcracker Wafer Cookies, cover the top 5-6 rows in more melting chocolate. I decided to add in white candy melts to each individual color to make a lighter version for their “hats.” Allow hat to dry before the next step.
Step 3: Use a toothpick to make a thin line at the bottom of the hat (about 2-3 rows) with chocolate from coordinating hat color then dip in sprinkles.
Step 4: Cut white airheads into strips approximately ~1/4″ thick. Criss-cross two strips to make an “X” across the chest. Add two more strips – both horizontally – at top and bottom of Xs.
Step 5: Lastly add the facial features to you Nutcracker Wafer Cookies. I used the black sparkle gel to make two dots as the eyes. For the rosy cheeks, I used the red airhead and rolled 2 small balls. To attach the airhead cheeks, I dipped the balls into the candy melts as they act like edible glue. And for the lips, I used a pink heart sprinkle. You could also use frosting, red gel, or whatever red baking items you have on hand for the cheeks and lips too!
Repeat with other colors and serve up your Easy “Land of Sweets” Nutcracker Wafer Cookies!
