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??
- 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
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!
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!
