  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl combine half of the candy coating, the milk chocolate baking pieces, and 1 teaspoon of the shortening. Microwave, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds.

  • In a second microwave-safe bowl combine the remaining candy coating, the mint-flavor baking pieces, and the remaining 1 teaspoon shortening. Microwave, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Drop spoonfuls of milk chocolate and mint mixtures over the cookies, alternating colors, and covering the cookies. Using a narrow spatula, swirl the two mixtures together.

  • Chill candy about 30 minutes or until firm. Use foil to lift candy. Cut or break into pieces.
