Baking Success Or Baking Mess


1/3 cup Crown® Lily White® Corn Syrup
Assorted food colors
Baked cookies
Small candies or other decorations, optional


Add corn syrup to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. When syrup begins to bubble around the edges, continue to cook for 1 minute. Do not overcook.

Divide syrup into 4 small bowls. Stir 2 drops food color into each bowl.

Use a fine bristle artist brush to decorate cookies; if desired, add candies. If “paint” starts to set, reheat in microwave for a few seconds. Dry thoroughly in a single layer before storing in airtight container.
