I use this recipe every Christmas for decorating cookies. It's wonderful because it's so easy to make and deal with, it colors well, and it's not the regular old frosting. Who doesn't love white chocolate?

This video was helpful, I didn't know the importance of brushing off the crumbs. It makes sense smooth serface would be easier to frost. Thanks for the tip!!!
