  1. Melt a bag of white candy melts in a double boiler until smooth.
  2. Put some sugar in the bottom of a cup.

  4. Once you fill a milkshake straw with the candy melts, put them down into the sugar in the cup and then chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  5. Once they are completely cool, and hardened, remove them from the straws by pressing the flat end of a skewer stick in firmly until they pop out of the straws.
  6. Keep the chalk in a cool place until you’re ready to use.


  1. Bake the sugar cookies as directed, and allow them to cool to room temperature.
