tips on how to make chocolate sandwich sprinkle cookies:

These cookies may look a little difficult, but they are so simple. They only take a few minutes to prepare and cook. The tricky part is not eating all of them.

Here are a few tips and tricks to help you make these delicious holiday cookies.

-When making this recipe, it’s important to understand that the dough should not be sticky. If it is sticky, the butter was either too softened, or you didn’t add enough flour.

-When mixing both the cookie dough batter, as well as the frosting, I would recommend using an electric mixer. I use my hand mixer, but a standing mixer would also work.

-If you are planning on mixing by hand, we highly recommend using a wooden or plastic spoon for the dough, and a whisk for the frosting.

-As you roll out the cookie dough, be sure that the balls are similar sizes. They will be matching up with each other, and they won’t look as cute or as uniform if they are different sizes.

Change the color of sprinkles depending on the holiday.

Sprinkles are so fun to me. I love that you can change the color of sprinkles, and they suddenly become a cookie for a different holiday.

I use green sprinkles for St. Patricks Day.

I use orange and purple sprinkles for Halloween.

On Valentine’s Day, I make these with pink and red sprinkles.

For the fourth of July, I use red white and blue.

I could go on and on, but these really are the perfect cookies, for any holiday.
