Normally it’s not advised that you eat your emotions, but an exception can surely be made for these happy faced cookies inspired by emojis. The emoji cookies by YouTuber Rosanna Pansino are part of her ‘Nerdy Nummies’ series and the release of the video was perfectly in time with World Emoji day on July 17th, as well as the 250 new emojis that will be introduced in the new Unicode 7.0 update.
The cookies are made from a simple sugar cookie recipe, but the treats really start to take on some personality when the icing is applied. Since emojis need to be extremely simple in terms of graphics, this also makes them pretty easy to replicate in icing. Pansino’s creations include heart shapes, cool faces with shades and sleepy emojis.
