Step 1: Baking the cookies
This is an easy part; pick your favorite chocolate cookie recipe.

You will want to cut the stem off from the tulips. Now it’s time to bake these as per your normal cookie instructions from your favorite recipe you used.
Step 2: Assembling of the sandwich cookies.
You will need 4 pretzels per sandwich cookie. At one end of each pretzel you want to attach a spice drop. Next you want to spread the buttercream icing on half of the cookie; then arrange pretzel “legs” and “arms” where they should be sticking them into the butter cream and cover with the remaining cookies.
