Anyone who knows me (or my pant size) knows that I love to bake. Sugar, butter, flour...nirvana. On the other hand, frosting is my nemesis. I can't ever get it to look right, or be the right color, or harden up enough to stack cookies (unless I make royal icing, and I don't like the way it tastes).
Enter my latest discovery: "Frosting" cookies with Candy Melts. This is so much easier! Melt those little disks in the microwave (here's a tip: microwave for 30 seconds, stir until the bowl is no longer warm, microwave another 30 seconds, stir, repeat), add a little shortening to thin the mixture, and dip the cookies! So much easier that the frosting battles I usually fight.
