How to Make Pencil Wafer Cookies for your Kids!

With your knife, cut the corners off of one side of your wafer, creating a point. This is your pencil’s tip.
Trace the pencil tip with the white icing.
Add a mini chocolate chip to create the pencil’s lead.
With the pink icing, create an eraser on the other end of the wafer cookie.
Place each cookie on a tray lined with parchment paper to let the icing set.

White Chocolate Melts with food coloring or Melted Chocolate as the tip of the pencil
Black Icing as the end of the pencil
You can choose to keep things simple and dip the end of the wafer cookie into a small bowl with the chocolate or use a piping bag. The decorating process for these back to school cookies is very versatile.
