Easy Kids Christmas Cookies Recipes

Easy kids Christmas cookies recipes are great for giving the kids a fun activity at a holiday party.  Kids can spend hours having fun creating edible holiday desserts.

For each of these recipes, you can assist the children with preparing cookie dough from scratch.

But using pre-prepared dough, or a mixture that only requires you to add water (you can find these options in the baking isle) is much easier.

These easy kids Christmas cookies recipes focus on using creativity to design the cookies, rather than the baking process.

Easy Kids Christmas Cookies Recipes

Oreo Lollipops

-1 pack of Oreo cookies
-1 pack of semi-sweet chocolate chips
-lollipop sticks
-red and green sprinkles

Place Oreo cookies in the freezer for about 1 hour.

Pour about 2 cups of chocolate chips into a glass mixing bowl.

Use a saucepan to boil about 2 cups of water.

Place the chips on top of the saucepan, and frequently stir the chips until they are completely melted.

Remove them from the heat.

Take the lollipop stick and place them into the cream center of the Oreo cookies.

Holding the end of the stick, dip the cookies into the melted chocolate, making sure it is covered complete.

While the chocolate is still soft, dip the top half of the cookies into the sprinkles.  You can either mix the sprinkles together, or use all red for some and all green for others.

Let cookie lollipops sit flat on a plate, and place in refrigerator until chocolate coating is hardened enough to serve.

Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake as directed.

After you remove the cookies from the over, let them cool for a few minutes.

Put 2 very small dabs of icing on the cookies where you want Rudolph's eyes to be.

On top of each dab of icing, place one of the candied chocolates, and gently press the candy down into icing to secure it.

Then use the icing to attach the red gumdrop to the cookie, for Rudolph's nose.

Lastly, take 2 of the pretzel twists and attach them with the icing to the 2 top corners of the cookie.  These will be the ears.

Let the cookies sit for a few minutes in order to the icing to set a little.

Bake cookies as directed.

Once removed from the oven, let sit on the kitchen counter until they are completely cooled.  Then put them in a Ziploc bag and freeze them for about 1 hour (frozen cookies will help the ice cream stay in place).

Remove cookies from the freezer and place them on a flat surface.

Put 1 heaping ice cream scoop on the cookie, and cover it with another cookie.

Press down until the ice cream has spread and completely covers the bottom cookie.

If any ice cream seeps over, remove it with a spatula or kitchen knife.

Decorate the top of the sandwich with the candies, and use the white icing to draw garlands across your tree.

Return the cookies to the freezer until you are ready to serve them.

-clear sugar sprinkles

Prepare the cookie dough as directed on the package.

After the cookies have been removed from the oven and have cooled, cover them with a thick layer of whipped cream (or cool whip).

Sprinkle the sugar sprinkles on top of the whipped.  The sugar sprinkles will make the whipped cream sparkle, and create a sparkling snow effect.
