Ingredients:

Directions:

  • Make groups of 6 cookies on the counter.
  • Add frosting to one edge of a cookie {this will be your base}, and quickly place another cookie along the line of frosting.

  • Repeat until you have 4 sides. Every time you add a cookie, be sure to add frosting along its side, so it can stick to the cookie next to it. Be gentle with the block while the frosting is still wet.

  • Once you have all the sides, add frosting to the tops of all the cookies, and add the top cookie.
  • Gently place the block on the counter, and let the frosting dry for 5-10 minutes until it hardens.
  • Pour a pile of sprinkles in a small bowl.
  • Add a small strip of frosting along all the sides and side-by-side dip the wet frosting into the pile of sprinkles until its fully coated. After all the sides have been covered with sprinkles, set aside to let dry.
