Chocolate Surprise Cookies


Who doesn’t love a little chocolate overload? For this fun and easy hack, you’ll need cookie dough that’s in package and scored into squares. Break off a square and flatten it out into a disk. Then, stick whatever candy you want in the middle!

We suggest peanut butter cups, Rolos, mint chocolate kisses, or even marshmallows. Really, whatever your heart desires. Roll the dough into a ball, keeping the candy in the middle, and bake as directed!

Ti-Dye Cookies


One super simple way to spruce up any cookie is to get creative with the frosting. After all, the perfect compliment to a sugar cookie is frosting, right? For this awesome tie-dye technique, you’ll need liquid food coloring and peppermint extract.

Combine the extract and color, and squeeze a little into an eye dropper. After frosting the cookies with royal icing, place a few drops of the food coloring mix on the still wet frosting. Repeat with other colors to complete the look!

Swirled Cookies


Another quick and easy frosting method can be achieved with royal frosting and food coloring. Place the royal icing in a bowl and add a few drops of your preferred colors of food coloring.

Swirl the colors together and place the cooled cokie face down in the bowl. Then lit up and swirl to make a pretty design!
