A few months ago, I made set of baby gender reveal cookies for a friend of mine (you can see those here). This time, I’m the one who’s expecting, so I made a set for myself! I was so excited to share these cookies with our friends and family (and now you!) to reveal if we’ll be having a baby boy or girl in November.
I used the Oreo mold from The Cookie Countess to make these cookies. Here’s the full list of what you’ll need for this project:
- Filling (recipe below)
- Primary and Garden Candy Colors – It’s important that you use oil-based Candy Colors to color Candy Melts. Otherwise, the candy will seize and become a clumpy mess!
- 1-3/4″ Chocolate cookies (recipe below)
- 16″ decorating bag
- White candy melts
- Oreo mold
- Edible gold leaf
1/2 cup (113 grams) butter, softened
2 cups (225 grams) confectioners’ sugar
2 Tbs (30 mL) milk
Pinch of salt
1 tsp (5mL) vanilla
Combine butter and confectioners’ sugar. Add milk and salt and mix until smooth. Add vanilla and continue to mix until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes)
Color with Candy Colors.
Chocolate Roll-Out Cookies:
4 cups (575 grams) all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 cup (85 grams) cocoa powder
1 teaspoon (4 grams) salt
1 cup (226 grams) butter, softened
2 cups (450 grams) sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon (5 mL) vanilla extract
½ cup (122 grams) milk
Combine butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and salt
Add cocoa powder and milk.
Stir in flour.
Split into two pieces. Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Roll dough to 3/16″ (5mm) and cut cookies using a round cookie cutter.
Bake cookies at 350ºF (175°C) for 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely before decorating.
Watch the video to see how I made these gender reveal cookies (and stay until the end to find out if we’re having a boy or a girl!)
