  1. -Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
  2. -Start by getting a mixing bowl & gather your ingredients to make your cookie dough.
  3. -Place your butter and white sugar in the bowl and cream it for 5 mins using your electric hand or stand mixer.
  4. -Add milk, vanilla, and mix it for about 1 min.
  5. -Next, add your flour.
  6. -Mix again until all the ingredients are combined and the dough is formed. About 1 min.
  7. -Lastly, add 3-5 drops of Turquoise food gel color, mix again until the all of the dough is completely blue.
  8. -Lay out a large sheet of parchment paper on a flat surface and place the cookie dough on it.
  9. -Get a second large sheet of parchment paper, place it on top of the dough, and using a rolling pin, roll out the cookie dough until its about 1/4 inch thick.  
  10. -Take the top sheet of parchment paper off the dough. 
  11. -Get your circle cutter and use it to cut out circles in the cookie dough.
  12. -Use an offset spatula to transfer the circle cookies to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat.

  14. -Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes.
  15. -Remove the cookies from the oven and sit them somewhere flat to cool down.
  16. -While the cookies are cooling down, make the chocolate mermaid pieces. 

Chocolate Pieces 

  1. -Grab your clean and dry mermaid/sea shell molds and start with one color of melting chocolate at a time.
  2. -Melt chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir it, and then warm the chocolate in 15 second intervals until it’s smooth.
  3. -Place the melting chocolate in a piping bag, tie the ends, and use a clean pair of scissors to cut off the front tip. Try to make it a small hole.
  4. -Next fill the mold with chocolate and put them in the freezer for 5-8 minutes.
  5. -Once out of the freezer, place the mold on a flat surface. Pull on each side of the mold so the chocolate will separate from the mold. Then turn the mold over and allow the chocolate to slowly fall out right over the flat surface.
  6. -Repeat these steps for all 3 colors. Your chocolate will solidify in between each set so put it back in the microwave for 15-30 seconds so it can come back to liquid form.
  7. -Once you have all of your chocolate Mermaid and sea shell pieces, save your left over chocolate for assembly.
