"Little hands will have an easy time decorating these Garden Stone Cookies! Kids can be artistic or messy, just as long as they are having fun! Garden Stone Cookies can be decorated in so many different ways. Using candy like: M&M’s, Skittles, Candy Coated Sunflower Seeds, Chocolate Rocks, Reese’s Pieces, Starburst, and Confetti Sprinkles will make the cookies colorful and festive. If you’re looking forward to planting seeds with your children this spring, and are planning a garden, this crafty food project will be perfect for you!"

Materials List

  • 18-24 store bought or baked sugar cookies (I made 18 (3 1/2 inch cookies)
  • 1 tub Betty Crocker Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Cream Frosting*
  • Optional: 1 or 2 Oreo Cookies
  • Candy to decorate cookies


  1. Set your cookies on a cooling rack set over a piece of parchment or wax paper.

  2. Open your tub of Cookies ‘n’ Cream Frosting, and stir in the crumbs. If you want a darker shade of grey for your garden stone cookies, crush one or two more Oreo Cookies, and stir them into the frosting.

  3. Spoon frosting into a microwave safe bowl. Heat on high power for 20 seconds, then stir. Heat for another 20 seconds, then stir. If the frosting is thin enough to pour, it’s ready, if not then heat it for 10 second increments, stirring after each until it’s ready.

  4. Pour frosting over cookies, using a spoon to spread it out if needed. You may need to re-heat the frosting as you are working. Allow the frosting to set for about 20 minutes.

  5. Now the kids can have fun using candy to decorate their cookies to look like garden stones!
