Chocolate chip cookies get all gussied up for the holidays! Being they’re one of the most loved cookies ever they’re an absolute must when it comes to holiday baking, deserving of a place on all your holiday cookie trays.
Cookie baking is a fun activity for kids that will create lasting memories. I know this firsthand because baking and decorating Christmas cookies was an annual tradition in my house, an activity that we all looked forward to and did together.
Sticky hands, sprinkles everywhere, the tree lit up in the background and Christmas music playing. . .I’ll never forget those good times.
Betty Crocker cookie mix makes a great short cut especially for kids. The mix comes together easy enough for them to help out and fast so you can get to the really exciting part of decorating them.
These are dunked in melted chocolate and coated with colorful, festive sprinkles. You can also use crushed candy – candy canes or hard candies.
To help contain the sprinkles from going everywhere and tipping over you can set them in little bowls on a rimmed baking sheet or in a large baking pan.
