Big cookies

Easter sweets

I really like adorning my big cookies barely in order that it brings them up a notch, and all I do is add slightly buttercream across the edges of the cookie, after which enhance with some sprinkles and much more chocolate. 

I all the time try to use appropriate sprinkles for the event, so these are fairly pastels and hues that swimsuit the colors of all of the completely different Easter eggs I used. I clearly went slightly loopy with the eggs on prime, however extra the merrier proper?!
