The glitter gel doesn’t harden all of the way, so be careful when eating and transporting. I would not recommend stacking.
To make the licorice bow, tear off one string of licorice. Take one end and make a small loop, then take the other end and make another small loop, while crossing the middle sections, like an “x”, over each other to make a bow. Firmly press together the part where the licorice crosses in order for it to stay. Then trim the bow ribbon to the desired length.
If candy melts are too thick, continue adding one teaspoon of vegetable shortening until desired consistency is achieved.
For the white candy melts, the chocolate from the cookie may start to melt and turn the white candy brown. The best way to avoid this is to place the cookie in the candy melts, top side up, and spoon the candy melts on top, remove, and shake off excess into another bowl so the chocolate drippings don’t mix with the white. This method is more effective for this cookie.
