Created with vanilla sandwich wafer cookies, melted white chocolate, a mini chocolate chip, and a pink fruit chew, this fall food craft is a playful way to celebrate the season. We give this adorable snack an A+.

Wafer Cookie Pencils (makes 12)

Ingredients
12 vanilla sandwich wafers
3 oz. bright white vanilla candy melts

12 mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 pink fruit chews, cut in half horizontally

Preparation

  1. Cut the end of each wafer cookie on an angle to resemble the pencil tip.
  2. Melt candy melts according to package directions and place in a zip-top bag or piping bag. Cut the tip off the bag and pipe a white triangle onto the cut tip of the wafer. Carefully tap the cookie on the work surface to smooth out the melted candy. Arrange 1 mini chocolate chip on the point of each wafer as the pencil's lead.
  3. Pipe a small amount of the melted candy on the opposite end of the wafer, being careful not to pipe all the way to the edges. Arrange one of the cut pink fruit chews on top of the melted candy, cut-side down, to make an eraser. Allow pencils to dry at room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving.
