First, A Little Kid Talk

My kids went back to school last week. In past years, going back to school usually meant a breath of fresh air for all of us and time for me to catch up on my own work and interests. This year is totally different though… I miss them. Like, really miss them. People have always said, “the days are long, but the years are short,” and I’m learning in real time that they’re not wrong. Time is moving more quickly these days, and I just want to be there for all of it.

Over the Christmas break, as you can imagine, we did a bit of baking. Per usual, the kids begged to make no-churn peppermint ice cream. We decorated my favorite soft frosted sugar cookies with friends. And we even had one near-disastrous lasagna fiasco where Aimee temporarily lost a press-on nail [that she thought was] somewhere in a layered pan of noodles and ricotta (um, ew). Naturally, everyone’s favorite around the holidays are the cookies, and today’s recipe, these sprinkle chocolate chip cookies, are no exception.

Making Sprinkle Chocolate Chip Cookies

The dough for these cookies is the freezer cookie dough recipe from my book*. Simple modifications took that base recipe into these colored cuties, and I couldn’t be happier about it. First, we start with softened butter. Sugar and brown sugar cream together with the fat before eggs and extract adds in. The dry ingredients are basic- just flour, leavening, and salt. Finally, we add in the stars: chopped chocolate chunks and sprinkles. Here, I opted for a blend of regular rainbow sprinkles and rainbow nonpareils. The sprinkles have that fabulous nostalgic flavor while the nonpareils add a whisper of a crunch. The two sprinkles tag team with the chocolate in the simple dough that bakes up quickly.

These sprinkle cookies are mostly chewy throughout with the occasional sprinkle crunch. I love the flavor offered by the semisweet chocolate, but you could opt for a different variety if you’d like. Also, consider this the PERFECT cookie to take on the road next month for Valentine’s Day! Red, pink, and white sprinkles would definitely make these a festive treat. Give these cookies a try this week and let me know what you think. Peace, love, and cookies, y’all!

  • Author: Kate Wood
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 10
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2 Dozen
  • Category: Dessert

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 11/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 11/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped into ¼” pieces
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles
  • ¼ cup rainbow nonpareils 

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars together for 2 minutes on medium speed. Scrape sides of bowl and add eggs and extract. Mix on medium speed just to combine. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and stir until combined. Add the chocolate, sprinkles, and nonpareils and stir on low to combine. Use a medium-sized cookie scoop to scoop 1-1/2 tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Briefly chill while you preheat the oven.
  2. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Space the dough balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet at least 2” apart and bake in the preheated oven until the edges are barely golden and beginning to set, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool briefly before sharing.

  1. Just made these cookies [but don’t see how to post a pic 🙁 ].
    My only criticism is the yield. I am by far NOT a novice baker. Used a tablespoon and a half cookie scoop & the yield was 42, not the 24 as stated! Sometimes one doesn’t want a large yield, believe it ir not!
