"Yet another recipe for Glittered Snowflake Cookies. This time you drizzle melted white chocolate freehand over each cookie, then sprinkle with edible glitter. Buy your supplies from! Prepare yourself to be pleased, with the chocolate & glitter upon these cookies. Even though the instructions do not tell you to 'cut' a hole in each cookie, to thread a piece of ribbon through to hang as decorations on your trees, wreaths, garlands, etc. Remember to remove any ribbon a child might harvest with his or her cookie. You do not wish to have the child choke upon the ribbon. Get all your necessary supplies from Their catalog is always full of more cutters, pans, icing, colors, edible glitter. etc. You will never be dissapointed by wilton! Enjoy!"
