What You Will Need

Ingredients for biscuit decorating

Ingredients you will need:

  • Milk arrowroots (or other similar plain biscuits)
  • Icing sugar (or you can buy ready to roll yellow icing from the supermarket)
  • Yellow food colouring
  • White chocolate buttons (or white icing reserved before you add the yellow food colouring)
  • Icing pens or writing icing (or chocolate chips)

How to Make Easter Chick Cookies

Step 1

Make the icing according to the packet instructions, then add yellow food colouring, drop by drop, until you get your desired colour. Try to make the icing so that it’s not too runny, so it doesn’t drip off the biscuits.

Spreading yellow icing on cookies

Then ice the biscuits. You can use a blunt knife or the back of a spoon to spread the icing over each biscuit.

Step 2

While the icing is still a bit wet, add the white chocolate buttons for the eyes. If you don’t have white chocolate buttons, you can simply use some white icing (just set some aside before you add the yellow food colouring), or cut mini marshmallows in half and stick them on.

Step 3

Then add the finishing touches to the chicks. You can use dark chocolate writing icing or a black icing pen to add the pupils for the eyes. Or simply add some chocolate chips instead.

Then you can use a yellow or orange writing icing for adding the beaks and legs.

We gave some of our chicks cheeky personalities by making their eyes face in different directions. Kids can use their imaginations to personalise their own designs.
