White Chocolate Dipped Butter Cookies
I’m really excited that spring is finally here, but it’s also a little hard to believe that we’re almost into April this year! This year has flown by like crazy, hasn’t it?! We’re celebrating the first day of spring with these ‘springy themed’ White Chocolate Dipped Cookies. They’re simple to make and are super cute, so they’re great to bring to a pot luck or party sitch and they can also make cute little DIY gifts for a number of different occasions.
You can also switch up the toppings which is nice and really opens these guys up to a ton of different possibilities. I really like the white chocolate coating for these cookies because it hard sets nicely in a way that buttercream doesn’t and I think it totally tastes better than royal icing, but if you prefer royal icing that also totally work too since it also hard sets. Enjoy!
