decorated fortune cookie wafers

do you play with your food?
cuz once you start playing with your food, 
it's really hard to go back.
i mean, i've gotten to the point where i see something and try to figure out how i can change it.

either that or they just speak to me themselves.
hey!
see what i mean?

these spoke to me almost immediately when i saw them. 
look! they're all natural!
and they taste DEEEE-LICIOUS seriously! 
like a really light fortune cookie that melts in your mouth and eating them is much like eating lay's potato chips cuz there's no way you can eat just one.

but best of all, they make
yup. 
they totally looked like canvases to me, just waiting to be drawn on. 
i saw an entire bag of faces actually.

so i got to work.

yup!
a summer scene with sunshine, a beach ball, and a swimming couple including one with a hairy chest and legs and another...oops! 
uh ma'am?
could it be i kinda screwed up?

i'm sorry! here lemme fix that for you.
uh don't think so mister.
but i will give the lady an instant makeover. 
yup.
that is very true.
good call mr. swimmer. you're a keeper.
so there's your interchangeable summer scene.

hey let's make something else!
i just made one per holiday but you can of course expand on the number you want.

and you can see that half cookies make cute rainbows. 
donuts, cupcakes, and pancakes with butter and syrup.
(the cookies really do look like miniature pancakes 
by the way.)

i think it'd be real cute to make a bunch of cute donuts or cute cupcakes and put it on cute plate.

ok so here's another idea.
stick them in your kid's lunchbox as a surprise with some plain ones or hubby's lunch or even your own to remind you about an errand you gotta run.

the possibilities are endless.

your kids can draw on them too.
you can draw babies for a shower, couple names for an engagement party, a birthday cake and gifts, messages with one word on a cookie as a game to figure out, or whatever and stick them all in a jar as a unique gift or just in a baggie for fun.
they can be as detailed or as simple as you want. and the marker doesn't smear at all.
you may be unsure at first on what to make of them because of the endless possibilities.
but i know one thing's for sure,

  3. I've always loved the taste of those cookies but didn't like the idea of "wasting" them just to snack on. I'll look for these!
    You showed some really cute ideas, but how about writing kids' chores on them - and they can eat them only after they've done the work? Or spelling words to pack in lunches - "Ooooh teacher, I'm famished! Can I real quick grab a cookie in the middle of my test?" lol
