Like it or not, during the Christmas season you will probably be pulling out those trusty old cookie sheets and baking up something special to share. And while there are tons of amazing looking Christmas cookie recipes floating around Pinterest, sometimes you just need a recipe for a classic crowd pleaser. Am I right? (The answer is yes. Always yes.)
If that’s the situation you find yourself in, make some of these awesome Christmas Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies. Nobody can refuse a good old chocolate chip cookie, especially when it has an added dose of Christmas cheer with some extra chocolate and festive sprinkles!
Word of warning – resist the urge to let your kids help with this batch of cookies. They will inevitably scatter sprinkles around your floor (I’m talking ALL OVER YOUR FLOOR), and you will be finding them throughout your house!
Now that I’ve provided that disclaimer, here’s what you need to know. . . .
- 1 cup of butter
- 1/2 cup of white sugar
- 1 cup of packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2.5 cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups of milk chocolate chips (for dipped cookies)
- Festive sprinkles
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Using your mixer, cream together the butter (softened), white sugar and brown sugar.
- Add your vanilla.
- Beat in your eggs, one at a time.
- In a separate bowl, combine your flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly stir that combo into your butter/sugar mixture.
- Stir in your semisweet chocolate chips.
- Drop tablespoonfuls of the dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
- Let cookies cool on wire racks.
- Once the cookies have thoroughly cooled, melt some of the milk chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stove, and dip parts of each cookie into the melted chocolate. Place the dipped cookies onto plates and add sprinkles. Place in the fridge to allow the melted chocolate to harden on the cookies.
