Have you tried Buds Best Caco Cookies yet? Well let me tell you if you haven’t, you really NEED to. These little snackers are awesome. They are crunchy chocolate cookies with creme filling. Yes, there is another similar brand we won’t mention but my kids actually said they like these better.
So here we decided to have some fun and make a total edible checker set. The cookies are fairly simple. Just dip half in melted chocolate and the other in melted vanilla almond bark.
The board is made of cookie crumbs and a mock cream filling.

The Checkers
1 bag Buds Best Caco Cookies
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 T shortening
4 squares almond bark

The Board
2 bags Buds Best Caco Cookies
1 1/2 stick butter
2 cups Confectioners Sugar

Use a double boiler to melt chocolate chips. Dip cookie and place on wax paper. Do the same with almond bark. To keep checkers neat blow crumbs off before dipping. Tap excess chocolate before placing on wax paper.
The board. Same concept as a cookie pie crust. Use a good processor to chop the whole cookies. Cream filling included. Melt I stick butter. Mix well with crumbs. Place a silicone mat on cookie sheet. Spread out crust mix  be careful to make it 10 x 10 crust . place in freezer. Next step is the white squares. Mix 1/2 stick softened butter with 2 cups confectioner sugar. Roll out. Cut 32 squares measuring 1 1/4 in square. Place squares on crust alternating to form checkerboard pattern.
Play checkers!!! Winner has option to share!!!
