Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies- I decorated these cookies for St. Patrick’s Day, but you can use different sprinkles for any holiday. They are festive, and so tasty!
I don’t know about you, but at our house St. Patrick’s Day is all about the food. I found these cute little shamrock sprinkles at my local grocery store, and just had to buy them. Aren’t they fun? I thought of making cupcakes or even sugar cookies, but my boys wanted chocolate chip cookies.
The plan was to put green sprinkles in the dough, then dip the cookies and add the shamrock sprinkles on top. I whipped up the dough and realized I didn’t have any dark green sprinkles, so I asked my husband to pick some up on the way home. But alas, they didn’t have any.
The next day I looked at two more stores for green sprinkles. No luck. What the? Don’t the stores know they should be stocking up on all things green this time of year? I even considered buying sprinkles online.
But since my dough was already made, I decided to forgo the quest for green sprinkles. If you are lucky enough have them, (ha ha- lucky) you can add them to the dough for an even more colorful cookie!
