To melt white chocolate:

  1. When working with white chocolate, the key is to slowly melt it. You can use a double boiler or microwave method. If using the microwave, use only 40-50% power and cook at 30 second increments. After cooking it for 30 seconds, move to 15 second increments at only 50% power. White chocolate can burn easily! It usually takes less than a minute to melt white chocolate, depending how much you are melting at one time. Stir the white chocolate after each time to see if it's ready.
  2. Dip Snickerdoodle cookie into melted white chocolate and place on wire rack to set. Sprinkle with optional toppings.
