1. Melt the candy melts.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat two cups of candy melts in the microwave on 50% power for 3-4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
2. Cover the cookies with melted chocolate.
Lay out a piece of parchment paper, dunk the cookies into the melted white chocolate, remove with a fork, shake off any excess chocolate and set onto the parchment paper.
2. Decorate the Cookies.
Carefully pull apart a couple of pieces of Pull ‘n Peel and use a plastic knife to cut three 1 1/2 inch pieces and two 3/4 inch pieces per cookie.
Place the Pull ‘n Peel pieces on to white chocolate covered cookies like pictured.
Place 3 miniature M&M’s onto the top left of the cookie like pictured and let the chocolate on your cookies harden for about 30 minutes.
