I've been practicing with cutout sugar cookies and royal icing. I wanted to make a Halloween themed cookie- but I didn't want to color the icing with black food coloring. I've tried this before it it turns your mouth and teeth black! Instead, I thought I would tint my royal icing with melted semi-sweet chocolate. I tinted half a batch of royal icing with 1 oz of melted chocolate. It was super easy and very DELICIOUS! My husband said that these cookies reminded him of a chocolate glazed doughnut and I have to agree!
LESSON LEARNED: Flavoring royal icing with melted chocolate yields delicious results!
