Recipe tips:


  • You can make these cookies as big or as little as you like! The chocolate will dry and hold it all together regardless. 
  • If you can’t get vibrant green candy melts, you can always get a bright green oil-based food dye and just use white chocolate chips with the dye. You can also use a different shade of green, if all else fails.
  • If you can’t find large red heart sprinkles, any heart candy will do. You can even just draw them on with frosting.
  • If your chocolate seems chunky coming out of the microwave, just work the coconut oil into it and it may need extra. Adding the noodles to it will help as well.
