This is a great Mothers Day & Easter activity.

We recommend using our friends Islands 65% or 75% chocolate for dipping but feel free to use any cookie and chocolate.

Check out our step-by-step video and share your creations with #GAILsAtHome.

-Fill a saucepan with a little water and bring to the boil, then reduce to simmer
