This simple Sugar Cookie Peppermint Sticks Recipe is the perfect easy cookie recipe for your holiday cookie exchange!
Whipping up some Sugar Cookie Peppermint Sticks was only one of many things on our to-do list today! This holiday season has barely begun but is already packed full of activities. We made cookies! Went hiking! Got together with friends! Ate Pepperoni Pizza Ziti!
We were able to pop the ziti straight from the freezer into the oven and put together our holiday cookies while it baked. The ziti was chowed down on while the cookies baked, and when everyone was done we headed off into the woods for a group hike with friends. The holidays are busy, but I love that they can still taste good without slaving all day over the stove!
Sugar Cookie Peppermint Sticks, Ingredients:
- 1 batch sugar cookie dough, prepared (I used NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Rolled & Ready Sugar Cookie Dough Sheets)
- 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3-4 candy canes, smashed
Sugar Cookie Peppermint Sticks, Directions:
- Roll cookie dough into a rectangle (if you're using the Rolled & Ready dough, just take it out of the package, don't separate the layers).
- Using a knife or a pizza cutter, slice the cookie dough into thin strips and bake according to recipe directions. You're going to want to bake on the longer side of done so they won't be limp!
- Allow to cool on a wire rack for a few minutes, and melt your chocolate on the stovetop or in the microwave. I did mine in the microwave in 20 second increments, until it was fully melted.
- Dip to cookies in chocolate and then sprinkle smashed candy canes all over the melty chocolate.
- Cool in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to set.
- Wrap them up as a fun gift or enjoy them with your family!
