This is one of those baking projects that is SO much fun. You will have a blast making the cookies and eating them but designing and decorating them is such a treat. There are a few things you might need that aren’t on the average baking list. Wilton Meringue Powder, black food coloring, and bright white candy melts are the oddball ingredients here but they’re simple to order online or pick up at a specialty store. You’ll also want to have straws on hand to use as your edible chalk molds!

Make Black Royal Icing

  1. In a large bowl mix sugar, meringue, and cocoa.
  2. Add water, and beat on low about 10 minutes.
  3. Add black food coloring until color is evenly distributed in the frosting.

Edible Chalk Tutorial:

  1. Melt 4 ounces of white chocolate melts.
  2. Pour into a piping bag and cut a small hole at the tip.
  3. Cut wide straws to desired chalk length.
  4. Squeeze chocolate into the wide straws.
  5. Add a little white sugar to the bottom of a bowl to prevent the chocolate from coming out the other side of the straw.
  6. Make sure to fill straw full of chocolate so you end up with a solid piece of chalk.
  7. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes.

 

Use a rod knife, sharpening steel or dowel rod to get the chocolate out of the straw.

If you want the lettering to come out more crisp, you can use stencils and melted white chocolate to write on the chalkboard cookies.
