Chocolate Chip Christmas Cookies

Holiday Cookies

I bake all year long, but I always associate it with the holidays. I’m sure everyone could admit that food brings families together, and they definitely do that for our family. One of our favorite things to bake around the holidays are cookies.

Today’s holiday cookies are not only simple, but perfect for Christmas and even Santa’s plate. They are made using one of Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes, which can be found in the baking section of your local grocery store. You can also make a classic Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, but this version is especially easy for the busy holiday season.

How to Make Chocolate Chip CHRISTMAS Cookies

As mentioned, the base of the cookies is made using a mix, which helps speed up the cookie baking process. Here are all the ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • 1 Betty Crocker™ chocolate chip cookie mix (1 lb. 1.5 oz)
  • Butter and egg called for on pouch
  • 1 package of vanilla candy coating or 1 bag White Chocolate Chips
  • Holiday Sprinkles

Once your cookies are made using the package directions, you will just melt your candy coating or chocolate chips in a small pot until smooth. Then, dip your cookies half way into the chocolate and let set on parchment paper.

Sprinkle the cookies with holiday sprinkles and let set for 1-2 hours until hardened.
