Summer is here, which means weddings are all around. So, today I’m sharing some pretty Sunshiny Yellow Wedding Cookies. These wedding cookies start out with a buttery sugar cookie, that are drizzled with creamy white chocolate and then decorated with adorable white and yellow sprinkles. My nephew, Jordan recently married his best friend, Nicole and my sister, Darlene asked me to help her make wedding cookie favors, similar to the ones I made for our daughter, Chelsea’s wedding. You’ll get the steps to make these delicious Sunshiny Yellow Wedding Cookies, along with some beautiful pictures from their very special day.
I just love this picture of Nicole and Jordan. They’re adorable together and love each other very much! Congratulations you two!
These wedding cookie favors start out with our family’s favorite sugar cookie recipe. Then they’re drizzled in a swirly pattern with creamy white chocolate and decorated with adorable sunshiny yellow and white sprinkles. Easy, delicious and pretty!
Shown here are both cookies decorated with white chocolate and yellow sprinkles and the others that are decorated with the yellow chocolate and white sprinkles.
First, you’ll want to make as many batches of sugar cookies as needed and let them cool completely.
Place the cooled cookies on wax or parchment paper about an 1″ apart.
This is Nicole and her sweet little girl, Avalon. She looked like a little bride – just like her mommy.
Put the yellow chocolate oil in a Ziploc bag, seal tightly and place in warm (not hot) water for approximately 10 minutes. Shake the bottle after each 5 minute interval to evenly distribute the temperature.
Melt the white chocolate discs in a microwave safe bowl at 30-60 second intervals at 50% power, stirring after each interval. Divide the chocolate in two bowls.
Remove the yellow coloring oil from the warm water and Ziploc bag and make sure the bottle is dry. Add the necessary drops to one of the bowls of melted chocolate to achieve the desired yellow color.
Pour the yellow colored chocolate into a squeeze bottle and decorate the cookies in a swirl pattern. Before the yellow chocolate dries, sprinkle with the white sprinkles (see note below). Allow the chocolate to set completely.
Pour the melted white chocolate into another squeeze bottle and decorate the cookies in a swirly pattern again. Before the white chocolate dries, sprinkle on the yellow sprinkles (see note below). Allow the chocolate to set completely.
Place each decorated cookie into a gusseted cellophane bag, seal and cut off the excess bag with a bar sealer.
This is my beautiful sister, Darlene and her handsome husband, Dominic. They look like they’re having a really nice time.
Lastly, put the personalized label on each cellophane bag.
John and I delivered their wedding cookie favors to Michigan in boxes from Nashville Wraps. The box shown above is 9″ x 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ and fits 16-18 cookies. These boxes are a great way to store, freeze and transport cookies.
These cookies freeze and thaw well right in their boxes, so you can make them a few weeks before the big day. Then the night before the wedding, take the cookies out of the freezer, so they can come to room temperature.
Shown in this picture are the Sunshiny Yellow Wedding Cookies on the elegantly set tables at their wedding reception.

- When making several batches of cookies; bake, cool and freeze until ready to decorate. When using a medium sized cookie scooper each batch of sugar cookies makes approximately 21 – 2 ounce cookies.
- Each 1/2 pound of chocolate should take approximately 1 1/2 – 2 minutes to melt, stirring after each 30-60 second interval.
- Make sure the yellow coloring oil is completely dry. Water is one of chocolate’s worst enemies.
- Use as many drops of yellow chocolate oil (or food coloring) necessary to achieve the color you desire.
- Have one person shake on the sprinkles immediately after the other person drizzles the chocolate.
- I decorated half of the cookies with yellow chocolate and then the other half with white chocolate.
- If the white or yellow chocolates becomes hard in the bowls, just pop them in the microwave at 50% power for a few seconds, stir and repeat until smooth and creamy again.
