Ingredients

  • 100 g white chocolate

  • 12 biscuits of your choice

  • 4 tbsp corn syrup

  • Food colouring (green, red, yellow, blue)

Method

  • Step 1

    Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler. Choose a pan and a bowl that work together well. The bowl must be able to sit on top of the pan without falling off and without touching the bottom of the pan. Once you’ve chosen your pan and bowl, fill the pan 1/3 full with water and place the bowl on top. (You need to make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl.)

  • Step 2

    Put the pan with water onto boil. Break up the white chocolate into little pieces and place in the bowl. Place the bowl on top of the pan and allow the chocolate to melt.

  • Step 3

    Once the chocolate has melted, turn off heat. Carefully take the bowl off the top of the pan. (The pan has boiling water in it, and the steam will hit you when you remove the bowl! You should either get help for this or ensure you are wearing oven mitts to protect your hands and arms.)

  • Step 4

    Line up your cookies on baking paper.

  • Step 5

    Using a spatula, scoop up a small amount of white chocolate and spread it over each cookie. Try to leave a flat and even top.

  • Step 6

    Allow the chocolate to set. This will take at least half an hour. In the meantime, lick out the bowl with the white chocolate (yum!), then give it a wash in hot water and prepare your cookie ‘paints’.

  • Step 7

    Find 4 egg cups or small bowls, and place a tbsp of corn syrup in each bowl. Add a drop or two of each colour into a different bowl and mix.

  • Step 8

    Now let your inner Picasso free, and paint like there is no tomorrow! Allow to dry and enjoy!
