Jelly Belly Cookie Tutorial

May 6, 2015

Cookie decorating is the perfect craft for kids!  It’s easy, cute and a ton of fun!  Especially when you decorate them with Jelly Belly Beans!

Recently I held a Mother’s Day Garden Party and our mommy/daughter activity was decorating Flower Cookie Pops with Jelly Belly Jewel Beans.  I pre-baked all the cookie pops using my sugar cookie recipe and then I frosted them with a thick royal icing (find that recipe here).  While the icing was STILL WET I decorated them with various colors of Jelly Belly Beans.

I also made cute little place cards using sugar cookies and Jelly Belly Beans.  Cutting the rectangles is super simple, I used a pizza cutter and a ruler!

Another cute idea for using Jelly Belly Beans…..Use them on Oreos!  I have a mold I use to cover my Oreos in white chocolate but you can also use a skewer (stick it in-between the cookies into the filling).  I waited until they dried and then added a bit of chocolate to the back of each bean to make it stick.  Jelly Belly Beans really do make the cutest flowers!
