Our favorite wild and whispy haired dolls are back and ready for adventure in Trolls. The movie sends trolls Branch and Poppy off on a quest to save their village from the evil Bergens!
Make your own edible Trolls with colorful cookie dough adorned with frosting and topped with cotton candy hair. These brightly-coiffed treats are fun to share before or after the movie.
Trolls Cotton Candy Cookies
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Pink food-gel dye
Blue food gel dye
You’ll also need:
Heart cookie cutter
Green and blue flower sprinkles
Pink and blue cotton candy
In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and the sugar until fluffy, then add the egg and vanilla.
Slowly add the flour mixture until just combined. Separate the dough into two, and dye one half of the dough pink and the other half blue with the food-gel dye.
Wrap the pink dough and blue doughs separately in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until you are ready to use.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep baking sheets with Silpats or parchment.
Roll out the doughs to about ¼-inch thick and cut out heart shapes with the cutter, place on the prepped baking sheets.
Bake for 10 minutes and let cool on a wire rack.
Once cool, turn the hearts upside down and pipe eyes and brows on the Branch cookie, and eyes and lashes on the pink Poppy cookie. For Poppy’s garland headband, pipe a line of white icing across the cookie then place the flowers to stick.
On a plain heart, fill the cookie with more icing then add the cotton candy at the point of the cookie so it sticks out of the top. Place the piped face cookie on top to sandwich.
Once the icing is dry the cookies are ready to serve.
