Materials used: These are Chocolate (Black Cocoa) and Vanilla Sugar Cookies. A Molded Twist on the traditional frosted Black & White cookies. Molded with TSB #1874 Heart Mold. Sliced in half & pushed together with opposite colors before baking. They spread a bit & the butter “melts” them back together during baking.

I really enjoyed working on this project and I’m glad to share this cheerful bit of spring with everyone. Using TSB molds are just as easy to use for paper casting as they are for cookie making and I’d encourage anyone to try it. The creative possibilities are endless!
