HI Craftster!
Okay, so my question is....is there any way that I can preserve food, like with a schlack or varnish or something? Are there any craft products that are designed specifically for coating food so they stay preserved and shiny?  I found these ridiculous cookies at the store and want to make them into magnets. Simple craft but I can't seem to find any info on how to preserve them.
Any thoughts or tips would be greatly appreciated!

Maybe resin...I know I've seen some resin braclets on here filled w/ candy so maybe you could sink cookies in it. Honestly I'm not sure Idon'thave any experience w/ the stuff myself but check out resin jewelry.

My dad used to cast all sorts of things into resin; the key was that organic material had to be dried so that it wouldn't self destruct due to moisture.  He had some sort of silica powder especially designed for the purpose; he filled a Tupperware container with it; gently buried flowers and whathaveyou in the shape he wanted them to stay; closed the lid; gave it some time.  After they were dried, they sat in the resin nicely -- color and shape intact!
