Make these cute wafer cookie pencils for an easy and delicious back to school treat.
We don’t normally encourage the kids to eat their pencils, especially on the first day, but these adorable wafter cookie pencils are edible and the perfect treat! Wouldn’t this be a fun surprise for an after school snack on their first day back to school?! They would also be delicious as a special treat for back to school lunch!
School’s back in session for some kids and while some may still have a few weeks left to enjoy summer, we decided to make these adorable Wafer Pencil Cookies to kickstart the school year.
If you’ve searched Pinterest for any sort of back to school ideas, you’ve most likely come across these pencil cookies. With only 4 ingredients and very easy to make, we couldn’t resist making them ourselves!
How could you make these Pencil Cookies differently?
If you don’t want to use wafer cookies, you could make your own sugar cookies and decorate them just the same using frosting instead of melting wafers.
Instead of piping the melting wafers, you could try spreading them on with a butter knife, and dipping the parts of the cookies directly into the melting wafers.
You could even use ready-made cookie icing pouches so there’s no need to fill the piping bags. The taste will be a little different, but sweet and delicious regardless.
Use either mini chocolate chips or a standard size and just place it on the tip.
If you’re having a back to school party and want to personalize the pencils, just use a pre-made icing pouch and write the guests’ names on each pencil.
Wafer Pencil Cookies – Ingredients
Vanilla Wafers (we used Voortman brand)
Bright White Chocolate Melting Wafers
Light Pink White Chocolate Melting Wafers
Mini Chocolate Chips
# 5 Piping Tip
How do you make Wafer Cookie Pencils?
Cut one end of the wafer cookie on both sides of the top to create a point.
Melt the wafers as directed by instructions on the package.
Fill piping bags with the 2 colors of melting wafers. We used tip #5 for easy piping. You could use a smaller tip if you find it’s easier, tip #3
Fill in the very bottom section of the wafer with the melted pink chocolate to resemble an eraser. Shake lightly to smooth the melting wafers.
Fill in the point of the wafer with the melted white chocolate in a triangle shape. Again, shake lightly to smooth.
Add a mini chocolate chip for the lead tip of the pencil before the melted chocolate hardens.
TIPS: Cut all of the cookie tips first for all of the pencil cookies you’re going to make.
While the melted chocolate may harden over time in the piping bag, we recommend melting and piping the eraser part on all of the cookies first and then melting the white melting chocolate for the tip and piping all of those last.
