Chick Cookies Perfect for Easter

After we made our Chick Cupcakes, I couldn’t resist making these Chick Cookies as well. It couldn’t be helped! They’re adorable cute chicky little faces with their beady black fondant eyes staring back at me – gah! I couldn’t help myself. Are they not the cutest? These are going to go over SO BIG in my first graders class next month!! She requested I do it, she wants to share ’em with her friends – isn’t that cute?

I can’t get over how fantastic these turned out. The kids loved using their egg-shaped cookie cutter for something other than making egg cookies! They loved helping with this recipe. Who wouldn’t? Making these Chick Cookie faces out of ready-made fondant is so much fun, and they know it and wanted in on it too. Making memories together over baking confections, isn’t that what it’s all about?

A lot of my baking creations call for ready-made fondant. Why? Because I want to be able to do the things I want to do with these recipes without the fuss of making homemade fondant (and sucking at it, because I do lol). We have had many unsuccessful attempts in the past, and I’m just going to stick with what I know, you know? I enjoy baking, and I super looove decorating, but if making fondant from scratch is too hard, I’m not going to do it, and use the ready-made stuff instead. It comes out gorgeously every time!

These Chick Cookies use a good old fashioned sugar cookie as the base. Use whatever recipe for these that you’ve used in the past with great success. Do you gravitate towards a boxed sugar cookie mix, or do you have a wonderful from-scratch recipe you prefer using when making cut-out sugar cookies? For me, I have a sugar cookie recipe I adoooore, but a box mix used wouldn’t be the worst thing ever. You do you, you know? I’m a ready-made fondant gal but I love a good homemade cookie. Whatever works for you, y’know? 🙂

My kids love decorating our cookies, cupcakes, and other confections, especially when it calls for fondant. Digging into it it and getting the shapes set up and molded is the funnest for them (and, quite frankly, for me as well). Fondant feels an awful lot like edible clay to me, you can do so many wonderful things with it, and the kids love helping because of it!

Could we have gotten more detailed with the creations of the chicks for these Chick Cookies? Perhaps. Could we have made cuts into the fondant for the wings to make feathers? Or added additional steps? Sure, we could’ve. But we love these cookies not just because they’re ridiculously cute, but because they are simple! Easy for you to make and kids to help. I kept it simple and they look wonderful, don’t you think? It doesn’t have to be complex to be beautiful! 🙂

Chick Cookies for Spring

Such a sweet way (pun unintended but perfect) to help celebrate the warmer weather, you know? The birds chirping, the marshmallow Peeps afoot, grass from their Easter baskets and cute trinkets, bubbles, kites, and all things fun! I loove celebrating spring and the return of warmth. I love planting on Easter, too! Getting my hands in the dirt, there’s nothing like it!

Assembling Chick Cookies

Roll out twelve spheres from your orange fondant, about half an inch in size. Flatten each orange sphere slightly, pointing one end. These will act as your chick’s beaks.

Roll out twenty-four spheres from your black fondant – about a quarter of an inch in size. These will act as your chick’s eyes.

Fondant Beaks and Eyes for Chick Cookies

Assemble your chick’s face beginning with the beak, then the eyes. Brush the back of each piece with a little bit of water and a paintbrush in order for the fondant to stick to each other.

Add Beak to Chick Cookies

With some of your remaining yellow fondant, roll out small strips to act as your chick’s little fur strands at the top of its head. Serve and enjoy!
