Hello, Sunny With a Chance of Sprinkles readers! I’m so thrilled to be guest posting for Chelsea as she enters the home stretch to earning her nursing degree. Congrats again, Chelsea!
I’m Melanie from Melanie Makes. I cook. I craft. I care for my family. Repeat. I have three little ones and when I get a spare minute – yes, that’s sarcasm you hear! – I love to be in the kitchen. With Christmas Day quickly approaching, I thought I’d share with you some EASY cookie recipes that are perfect for cookie exchanges, holiday platters, neighbor gifts or to simply nosh on while you’re watching a favorite holiday movie. Elf, anyone?
First up? These deceptively easy Double Chocolate Ginger Crinkle Cookies. A cake mix in the ingredient list helps get these cookies in the oven and onto your plate in record time. The touch of ginger just screams holiday!
Looking for the perfect food gift to wish a teacher, coworker or neighbor a happy holiday? These Dark Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Peppermint Mocha Cream are a showstopper. Decadent and delicious, you’re sure to receive many accolades for this sweet treat!
Peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven in my humble opinion! These Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies are the marriage of this classic flavor combination and are surely welcome on any cookie plate.
Another peanut butter and chocolate combo cookie. These Reese’s Pieces Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect alongside a cold glass of milk when they’re fresh from the oven. What am I saying, they’re pretty much perfect any time!
Last but not least, if brownies are more your thing, these cookies might be your kryptonite! Double Chocolate Walnut Brownie Cookies are just as their name implies, single serving brownies in cookie form. Chocolatey goodness at it’s finest!
Hopefully these recipes will get you in and out of the kitchen in no time in the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle. Merry Christmas!
