Adorable edible chicks for spring celebrations! Our White Chocolate Truffle Citrus “Chick” Cookies are moist and zingy with a white chocolate truffle chick sitting on top.
Can you feel the buzz of spring fever in the air? The official start of spring is only two days away. I’m already planning hiking trips and picnics, as if the flowers were already in bloom.
We’re on the cusp of a season bounding with new life and possibilities. That always puts me in the mood to celebrate.
So today we’re celebrating the arrival of spring with cute White Chocolate Citrus “Chick” Cookies!
These sweet, little bundles are built on a tender, buttery citrus cookie made with creamy Land O Lakes® Butter, lemon, lime, and orange zest.
Using convenient Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter Half Sticks makes it easy to pull out the right amount of butter you need, while keeping the rest of the butter ultra-fresh.
I dunked the warm, aromatic citrus cookies in green and yellow sprinkles to give them the appearance of nests.
While the cookies are warm, the sugar sprinkles stick really well.
For kicks and giggles, I topped each citrus cookie with a white chocolate truffle chick. The chicks are much easier to make than you might think…
I used candy melts to pipe itty-bitty feet, beaks and wings onto wax paper.
Then, I dunked creamy white chocolate truffles in molten candy melts, sat them in the citrus cookie nests, and attached the body parts while the candy melts were still soft.
White Chocolate Truffle Citrus “Chick” Cookies are a fun spring project for the kids, and will make a show-stopping addition to your Easter table or class party.
I love the little yellow chicks for Easter, but the baby blue birds are marvelous for any spring celebration. They are only half-dipped to create the color variation.
Not only do these cookies look adorable, they are easy to make and taste amazing. That is certainly something worth celebrating.
But we’ve got something else to celebrate today…
