How to Make Simple Little Chick Cookies with Snack Worms | The Bearfoot Baker

Do you remember the other day when I made the Simple Bunny Cookies with the Cute Bunny Tushies? I liked them so much I decided to make a few friends for them. I mean come on, if bunny tushies are that cute, chick cookies with cute little chick tushies have to be just as cute! How to Make Cute Little Chick Cookiws with Video | The Bearfoot BakerSince the bunnies got a few carrots to munch on I thought the chick cookies needed a few worms in case they get hungry. What do you think? I think I want to make every animal on the planet into cute little tushy cookies. Maybe we can start a world wide cookie business called Sugar Cookie Tushies…adorable cookies not buts about it! I know. I know I need to work on that tagline.

Supplies for Chick Cookies:

Sugar Cookie Recipe
Royal Icing Recipe – Full Batch or Half a Batch of Royal Icing
*All the Icing Used in This Tutorial is 15 Second Royal Icing

Cookie Cutters:
Scalloped Heart Cookie Cutter- these chicks were made with a 4″ cutter but you can use any size you want.
Bow Tie Cookie Cutter-The one used here was 2″ and I think it came with the chick in this Wilton set. If you don’t have this one just pick one that fits the size of your chick cookie.
Scalloped Circle Cookie cutter
Worm Cookie Cutter-Any worm cutter will work but the one used here is from the Wilton Animal Pal Set.

We need to discuss the little chick wings. They aren’t hard to make but they may need some explaining. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I made you a picture.How to Make Simple Chick Cookies with Cute Little Wings | The Bearfoot Baker

  • Begin with a 2″ scalloped circle cookie.
  • Cut it in half.
  • Flip the 2 half circles over and place them together.
  • Use the circle cookie cutter to cut the outer edge of the halves. When you are done, you have 2 simple little chick wings.
  • If you don’t want to use the circle cookie cutter to make the wings, you can always use a mini leaf cookie cutter. Whatever works right?!

  • Once you make a batch of cookie dough and baked up your little chicks, wings, worms and bows, let them cool completely before you bake.
  • Outline the hearts and wings with the yellow royal icing.
  • Flood the chick cookies and wings with the yellow icing and add the 4mm Black Pearl Dragees for the eyes or you can use black icing to make them.
  • Let the cookie dry either overnight or for a few hours. Since my climate is humid, I let them dry overnight before adding the beak and feet to help prevent the colors from bleeding together. If you live in a dry climate, lucky you! You don’t have to wait as long.
  • Add the beak and the feet with the orange icing and let it dry overnight.


  • Pipe 2 ovals with the red icing at the top of the bow tie.
  • Let it dry for 10-20 minutes until the icing crusts over.
  • Flood the rest of the heart and let it dry for 10-20 minutes.
  • Pipe a dot in the center of the bow.

  • Let the cookies dry before piping the feet with the orange icing.

  • The worms are so simple I didn’t make a tutorial.
  • Begin by outlining the body with the red icing.
  • Pipe two lines (that don’t touch) on the neck area and let it dry for 10-20 minutes.
  • Flood the worm with the red icing and add a candy eye.
  • Pipe the center line on the worms neck.
  • Let the cookies dry overnight.
  • Here is a little video for ya. Enjoy!
