I've been wanting to make pokeball cookies for awhile. With a class full of kids, now seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Typically when I dip cookies, I use Oreos. But for the pokeballs, I wanted to have them be a bit bigger so I could get the details easier. Instead of Oreos, I used Chips Ahoy Thin chocolate chip cookies. Personally, while I think the Oreos taste better dipped in white chocolate, the finished product I had was sill very delicious!
First, I heated a whole bag of Wilton white chocolate melts. I wound up adding 2 tbps of olive oil to dilute it. It was still too thick.
I dipped half the cookie into the chocolate and put it on wax paper to set.
Once I was finished with all the unbroken cookies, I spooned the rest of the white chocolate into a piping bag and piped white circles for the Pokeball's release button.
When the white chocolate was set, I dipped the other half in Wilton red melts.
Next, I melted about a half a cup of semisweet chocolate chips inside a piping bag.
With them melted, I piped a line between the red and white chocolate, adding a small circle in the middle.
While it was still wet, I placed one of the white circles on top.
They turned out adorable! And they were very easy to make! I hope the kids enjoy them!
