Simple holiday cookies, Valentine's Day

 

I’ve always talked about simplifying (I figure if I say it aloud enough than maybe it will finally sink in for me!) but now more than ever I realize that I need to really prioritize things and simplify what I can. Hello, mom of five kids under the age of eight here! But, that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love to make sweet treats or celebrate every holiday I can.

So whether you’re an avid baker who is short on time, or somehow manage to set off the smoke detectors by just walking into your kitchen, I’ve got a simple tutorial (I really can’t even call it a recipe because it’s so easy) for you to ensure that every holiday can be fully celebrated with baked goods; as they should be, wink wink. We all know calories and carbs don’t count on holidays, right??

 

Simple holiday cookies, Valentine's Day

materials/ingredients needed:

  • cookies of choice (I bought mine, but you could bake some from scratch, or use frozen dough, whatever you prefer and have time for!)
  • melting chocolate in color or flavor of choice
  • coordinating sprinkles

 

Simple holiday cookies, Christmas

 

To make these delicious and festive cookies simply melt some chocolate according to package directions, dip half your cookie in, and then dip in a bowl of sprinkles! I even used mint chips for the Christmas ones and they turned out so yummy. This is also a fun way to get your kids involved in the kitchen that isn’t too complicated for the little ones. I promise that they will have a blast helping you with the sprinkles!

 

Simple holiday cookies, Halloween

 

Psst, like my personalized calendar that I used as a backdrop for my holiday cookies? They are from www.throwbackcalendar.com and not only are they a snap to make (they basically make themselves), but would make such a sweet gift for Valentine’s Day! Check them out and use code GIFTROUNDUP10 for 10% off your order! This code expires soon (and Valentine’s is right around the corner!) so don’t wait!

What sweet treats do you have planned for next week?

    Well my birthday is coming up next week, so I’m expecting to eat some cake! But I’m also craving some brownies, and now after reading your post, cookies are on the mind 😅 I think it’s safe to safe my sweet tooth will definitely be satisfied by the end of next week!

    I love shortcuts especially when things are hectic! A chocolate chip cookie with more chocolate and sprinkles is always a great idea!!
