Sprinkle Cookies

Our boys LOVE sprinkles. They will eat anything if there are sprinkles on top. I may try putting sprinkles on vegetables, ha! I love sprinkles too. Who doesn’t? They are bright, fun, and happy!

Whenever I ask the boys what cookies I should bake, 9 out of 10 times they yell, “Sprinkle Chocolate Chip Cookies.” They LOVE these sprinkle cookies! I don’t blame them, they are SO fun and SO delicious! Chocolate chip cookies with colorful sprinkles? Count me in!

Sprinkle Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

How to Make

Basically, I mix up a bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough and stir in lots of colorful sprinkles. It’s that easy! I also roll the cookies in sprinkles before putting them in the oven to make sure there are LOTS of sprinkles. Warning, you might find sprinkles on your kitchen floor for a few days, but I promise it’s worth it:)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients and set aside.
  • Using a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars together for about 3 minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips. Gently fold in 3/4 cup of the sprinkles. Stir carefully so you don’t smash up the sprinkles.
  • Form the cookie dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons of dough. Roll the cookies in the remaining sprinkles, covering the entire cookie dough ball. This is the fun part! You can even let the kids help, if you don’t mind a little mess:)
  • Place cookies on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt, a must if you ask me:)
  • Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.

How to Store

The sprinkle chocolate chip cookies will keep in an airtight container on the counter for up to 4 days. You can also freeze the cookies for up to one month.

If you want to freeze the cookie dough, roll the cookies into balls and place them on a baking sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes or until the cookies are solid. Transfer the cookie dough balls to a freezer bag or container and freeze for up to 2 months. When ready to bake, remove from the freezer, place on a baking sheet, and bake! You don’t have to defrost the cookie dough, just add a few additional minutes to the baking time.

  1. They look so festive and fun! I’ve gotta admit I love sprinkles too – my grandma sometimes took us for ice cream and I’d always get the sprinkles on top. Smart idea on adding something to celebrate to moving, I think it’s always hard to leave a house behind. 

    Have a great week! 

  2. I’m not a huge sprinkle person, so I would most likely put the sprinkles inside the cookies…just the first 3/4 but yeah, I would totally make this.

  3. I made these yesterday. They are really good! I will be honest, I was a little nervous about the amount of flour but the end product was perfect. Our friends asked if they were store bought! And the sprinkles were a hit with my kids!
    Thanks for a great recipe! Adding to my book.

    Best,

  6. 5 stars
    these came out wonderfully!  not only colorful, but the ratio of chocolate ensured every nibble was delicious. i used a mix of bittersweet (1.5 c) and 60% cocoa (1c) and all the kids and adults were smiling even before we started singing happy birthday to my three year old!  without a doubt, these were a total hit!
