  • 1 package of Chocolate Milano cookies
  • cup Red candy melts
  • cup Blue candy melts
  • 1 package Edible gold star sprinkles


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. Pick a baking sheet that easily fits in your refrigerator for one of the steps below.
  • In a small glass bowl, place the red melting chips and microwave on high for 1 minute and 15 seconds. Let it sit for 2 minutes, then gently shake bowl. The chocolate should lose shape and look melted. If not, place it back in the microwave for another 10-20 seconds, stir to test and make sure all the chips have completely melted.
  • Then, take a Milano cookie and dip one corner in the red chocolate. Place it on the prepared cookie sheet and repeat until all cookies are dipped with red on one side.
  • Next, gently sprinkle the edible gold stars on top of the red dipped portion. Place in fridge for 5 minutes to cool completely.
  • Repeat process with the blue chocolate candy melts, melting, then dipping the other corner of the Milano cookie in to coat. Be sure to leave a stripe of white in the middle of the cookie! Sprinkle the blue section with edible gold stars and place back in the fridge until cool. This should only take about 5 minutes.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
