I love these easy chocolate cookies! They are really perfect for Christmas: so soft and colorful, and they taste wonderful! Am I talking in rhymes again? It happens when I get very excited about cookies! And these little treats are definitely worth your excitement! They keep very well in an air-tight for at least a week (that’s how long they lasted in my house): they don’t lose their shape, the sprinkles don’t come off, the texture remains amazing even after a week. I so recommend these cookies!
I used a similar method in making these chocolate cookies as I did with the vanilla sugar cookies earlier. In fact, on this photo below, I am stacking three chocolate cookies on top of the three vanilla sugar cookies. I highly recommend you make both types of cookies (chocolate and vanilla sugar) at the same time for an easy yet impressive presentation:
Since I was on a baking spree this week, I am going to tease you now and let you know that I also made some chocolate pecan cookies that were really yummy (recipe to follow soon) – you can see them stacked in between the sprinkled cookies:
Keep in mind that this type of cookie dough needs to be very cold right before baking so that the cookies retain their nice puffed up shape and don’t spread out or flatten out. For that reason, make sure to freeze the cookie dough (already shaped as cookie balls) for at least 30 minutes immediately prior to baking – I talk in detail about it in the recipe instructions section below.
Make these beauties during this holiday season and enjoy!
