I made these blue and green candy dipped fortune cookies for my cousin’s baby shower. I had never done this before and found it quite easy. Here is what I did.
- Candy Melts
- Fortune Cookies
- Double broiler or Saucepan and glass bowl
- Vegetable Oil (optional)
- Wax Paper or Parchment Paper
- Baking Sheet
I didn’t have a double broiler so I used a small saucepan, glass bowl, and strainer. Add enough water to simmer over medium heat, but make sure the water does not touch the glass bowl. Another option is to melt the candy in the microwave. Heat and stir the candy at thirty second intervals at half the power.
When the water is simmering, add the candy melts. Make sure the water does not boil. Gradually and gently stir with a rubber spatula as the candy melts. If desired, add vegetable oil a teaspoon at a time to achieve the desired consistency. Adding vegetable oil will thin out the candy, make it easier to dip, and will not alter the taste. Another option is to use chocolate squares.
Dip each cookie one by one and gently rest them on a wax paper covered baking sheet. Allow the candy to set by placing the baking sheets in the refrigerator.
After the candy hardens, place each cookie in a 4” by 8” treat bag and tie with a ribbon. I added a personalized tag using colored card stock, my computer, and a heart shaped punch. These candy dipped fortune cookies made perfect favors for each guest to enjoy immediately or take home for later.
