Pencil Cookies {Easy DIY}

Wafer pencil cookies
Hey friends! How is it mid August already?
In some ways it seems like this summer is lasting forever, but other days it seems like
it's flying by. We cancelled our family vacation this year, but we've actually been
spending more time together than ever this summer. We've enjoyed pool time, playing
cards, craft time, walking in our neighborhood, home projects, trying new recipes and
plenty of play time with our pups!

Our daughter Madison started new teacher orientation today and we are so excited for her!
It's a challenging time to begin her elementary teaching career, but she is ready for whatever
the year brings. She is sad not to be able to meet her students at first since they will begin
classes virtually, but hopefully they can get back to the classroom soon!

To celebrate the beginning of her teaching career I made some super easy pencil cookies
and delivered them to her and wished her luck on her first day. They would be super
cute to make for your kids or grandchildren as they go back to school.

I hope that you're having a good summer!

Supplies needed to make pencil cookies:

wafer cookies (I used Voortman brand)
candy melts (pink and white)
mini chocolate chips
parchment paper

Using a sharp paring knife to cut one end of the cookie into a point.
Melt pink candy melts in the microwave per package instructions.
Dip flat end into pink icing and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
To speed up the drying process place the baking sheet in the freezer for a few minutes.

Melt white candy melts per package instructions. Dip pointed end into white icing.
Place on the baking sheet and put a mini chocolate chip on the tip.
Put them back into the freezer for a few minutes to set.

Enjoy!
