I made these with my youngest granddaughter. I divided the decorations in a muffin tin. I also found black melting chips and used those instead of the dark chocolate. This was a fun project and she was delighted with the results. I will definitely be adding these to the Christmas cookie tray. They're so cute and we're a hit with everyone we shared them with.
