Lady Bug Cookies

If you’ve ever signed up to receive The Swiss Colony catalog, you’re probably familiar with these truffles:

Lady Bug Truffles

The Swiss Colony has had these for a few years now…and I just think they are the cutest thing…however, I’m not the biggest truffle fan.  I love me some chocolate, but the stuff from The Swiss Colony is just too sweet for me.  Therefore, I’ve found a way to make these super cute ladybugs using cookies and chocolate.


10-15 nilla wafer round cookies

1 1/2 cup red chocolate melts

1 cup chocolate chips

1.  Melt red chocolate melts in a double boiler or in the microwave.  Cover Nilla Wafers with red chocolate and let cool completely.  Decorate the face, wings, eyes, etc. with melted chocolate chips.  Let your creativity fly!

Every Monday is a “Reci-bee” post, where I share my favorite recipes, recipe collections, and cooking and baking hints and tips.
