We had Easter with my extended family a few weeks ago, and I always bring a dessert (or two). I wanted to bring the Cherry Kuchen Bars, but I couldn't decide what else to make... then I remembered this! I found this recipe on Pinterest and wanted to try it when I could share them with a lot of people, so a family gathering was the perfect time! (Besides, who doesn't like sprinkles??)
They turned out amazing. They are definitely pretty sugary, but so worth having a few! (I think the kids really liked them, too!) My only complaints are that 1) the sprinkles don't stick well without a bit of extra effort, and 2) they get pretty hard after a few days. I am considering adding a little extra Crisco/egg next time, and see if that helps. However, if you don't expect them to last more than a day or two, the only problem is getting the sprinkles to stick. That just takes some extra work when you are rolling them.
I will definitely be making these again!
Remember, comments are love! Let me know if you try them!
Chocolate Chip Sprinkle Cookies
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco
- 3/4 cup Sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the Crisco and both sugars. Beat on medium speed until the mixture is light and fluffy.
- With the mixer on low, add in one egg at a time. Mix well after each egg, then add vanilla. Gradually add in the flour mixture until all the dry ingredients are incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
- Form small amount of dough into a ball, rolling into a bowl of sprinkles. Scoop rounded two-tablespoons of the cookie dough and roll them in a bowl of sprinkles until coated. (May have to press the sprinkles in slightly.)
- Place 2” apart on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, and bake for 8-10 minutes.
- Allow the cookies to cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack.
