Notes

***The back of the cookie doesn't need to be dipped in chocolate. Just the top.

***Change food coloring and sprinkles to make these a great choice for any holiday. (Example: pink food coloring and heart sprinkles for Valentines Day.)

***You can also use white chocolate melting wafters or white almond bark for a change.

***Logs can be rolled into circles or ovals.
