What do children learn from cooking?
For these Spring Flower Cookies with Ritz crackers and Smarties,
- Ritz crackers
- Melted white chocolate
Start by melting the chocolate
Start by breaking the chocolate bar into pieces, and place it in a bowl.
Then, melt it in the microwave for 3 minutes. Keep opening the microwave in between for the chocolate to not burn.
When baking, I like to use chocolate bars instead of the chocolate chips. I find that it melts quickly and smoothly. It is also tastier.
Assembling the Flowers
Place a little bit of the melted chocolate over the Ritz crackers, then add the Smarties of your choice to make flowers.
Let the cookies to cool down completely. They are better served cold.
How Long Can You Keep No-Bake Cookies?
They can last up to 2 weeks in the fridge. As long you cover them in parchment paper and place them in an airtight container.
