I thought this would be a fun cookie to make with my grandson. Although it was a tasty cookies, it is not a project to do with children. The cookie did not look anything like the picture no matter what I tried to do. One thought would be to put the licorice in while the cookie is still warm.
This was a cute concept but the white chocolate chips didn't expand at all when baked so they were hardly visible under mini m&ms. I think I will have to go back and use frosting around minis to make them look like eyes.
