Tied Dyed Cookies

This month, my children are attending a summer camp. The summer camp takes them swimming weekly and on field trips. Plus the camp have the children participate in crafts if they want. My children were able to make tied dyed shirts. My daughter decided she didn't want to participate so my son was so nice to make an extra one for her. He did a great job and I was really impressed. When I was making cookies, I decided to attempt to make a tied dyed cookie. The kids thought this was an awesome idea. It was a big hit. The kids even made several of their own. Here is the link for the cookies I used here.
Tie Dyed Cookies
Food Dye

  1. Divide the frosting in half. Set aside half of the frosting.
  2. Frost a cookie with white frosting. Set aside to set for a few minutes.
  3. In four containers, evenly divide the remaining half of the frosting.
  4. Add a few drops of different colors of the food dye to the containers.
  5. Mix well.
  6. Using the lightest color first, make several lines in the same direction across the cookie.
  7. Then repeat with a darker color across the cookie or in a different direction of the lighter color.
  8. Continue using the desired colored frosting with a lighter color first.
  9. Then carefully take a toothpick, make swirling motions into the frosting to blend the colors lightly together. Don't over swirl or the colors will blend together.
