Recipe notes:

1. Double or triple the recipe to make as many cookies as you need.

2. Use any chocolate you prefer. Milk chocolate, white chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate all work. 

3. Use candy melt chocolates for multi-colored cookies. 

4. Edible food spray is available at any local baking-goods store or on websites like Amazon and Walmart, under the Wilton brand and is kosher certified under the OU. 

5. Omit the edible spray if you can't find it.
