In his role as a trash compactor, the love-struck WALL-E has developed a real knack for making good use of spare parts — like turning his collection of extra robot eyes into irresistible treats.
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 12 mins
Total Time: 32 mins
What You’ll Need
- Batch of chilled sugar cookie dough (homemade or store bought)
- Rolling pin
- Wax paper
- Kitchen knife
- Baking sheet
- Wire cooling rack
- White cookie icing
- Butter knife
- Chocolate Candy Melts
- Chocolate M&M’s candies
- Small microwavable bowl
- Small round pretzels
If the store bought brand of dough you use is too soft to hold the cookie shapes during baking, you can knead in a little extra flour to stiffen it before rolling it out.
How To Make It
- Heat the oven to the specified temperature for the cookie dough. Meanwhile, print and cut out the template pieces.
- Roll out the dough on a floured sheet of wax paper to ¼-inch thickness and then use the template and kitchen knife to cut out a bunch of WALL-E eyes (both left and right). Bake the cookies according to the recipe directions and then transfer them to the wire rack to cool completely.
- Working with one cookie eye at a time, frost the surface with white cookie icing, and gently press a candy melt in place for the iris. Next, use a blob of cookie icing to “glue” a chocolate M&M’s candy atop the candy melt.
- Melt a few chocolate Candy Melts in a microwavable bowl, heating them for 10- to 15-second intervals until they are soft enough to stir into a smooth consistency. Use the tip of a toothpick dipped in the melted chocolate to add three “rivets” to each eye.
- Use more of the melted chocolate to stick each completed pair of WALL-E eyes to the top of pretzel.
