White Chocolate Dipped Snickerdoodles Recipe

Caleb loves helping me in the kitchen. He loves whisking, stirring, and of course taste testing. Last week, he asked if we could bake cookies. Like I could say no to cookies…and his cute face. I asked him what kind of cookies he wanted to bake and he said he didn’t care, so I started listing off a few of my favorites: No-Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies, Gingersnaps, Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies. I didn’t get a reaction until I said snickerdoodles. He looked up at me with a big smile and started cracking up. He asked, “What kind of cookie?” I said Snickerdoodles. He laughed again and couldn’t stop laughing. He thought the name was so funny. He was rolling on the kitchen floor. He said he wanted to make the silly snickerdoodles! So we did!

I love a classic snickerdoodle cookie, especially during the holidays, but I wanted our cookies to be extra special so we made White Chocolate Dipped Snickerdoodles. Best decision ever!

Life is busy, especially during the holidays, but sometimes you just need to take a break. And for me, there is no better break than a cookie baking break. Especially, when I have a cute little kitchen assistant. We had so much fun making snickerdoodles together. We were definitely snickering while making these cookies. There was flour, cinnamon, sugar, and white chocolate everywhere!

When the snickerdoodles were done baking and cooled, we dunked them in melted white chocolate. I wanted to make them pretty for the holidays so I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar over the white chocolate. The cookies were not only pretty, but super duper delicious! I loved the white chocolate with the cinnamon sugar snickerdoodle!

We sampled a few snickerdoodles and then I told Caleb it would be nice to share our cookies. We are teaching him about sharing:) He thought it was a great idea so we got out our Ziploc® One Press Seal stackable containers. I love the One Press Seal containers because they are easy to securely close and easy to stack! They come in more than 10 shapes and sizes and even have a fun holiday collection!

We filled several containers with our White Chocolate Dipped Snickerdoodles and took them to neighbors, friends, and family! Everyone loved the cookies! They made a great holiday gift!

We did keep a few cookies back at the house for ourselves. I used Ziploc’s festive holiday designed storage bags for our cookie stash! They also make freezer bags which are perfect for putting your holiday cookies away for a snowy day! If you receive too many cookies at once, you can store some in the freezer for later. I always have cookies in our freezer. You never know when a cookie craving will strike. I seem to get a cookie craving every day…or every hour:)

We had fun making and sharing our White Chocolate Dipped Snickerdoodles! They are the perfect cookies for the holiday season! Happy baking!

For the Cookies:

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

White Chocolate Garnish:


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Using a mixer, beat the butter and sugar together until creamy and smooth, about 3 minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Slowly add in the dry ingredients, with the mixer on low.
  •  Shape dough into balls, using about 1 tablespoon of dough. Mix ¼ cup sugar and the cinnamon together in a small bowl. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set around the edges and centers are still soft. Do not overbake! Remove from oven and let cookies set up on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
  • While the cookies are cooling, melt the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Dip cookies half-way into the white chocolate. Place cookies on wax paper or parchment paper. If desired, combine sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle the mixture over the white chocolate. Let cookies set up until chocolate is completely dry.
  • Note-cookies will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days.

  1. I love white chocolate in cookies…adds such a nice sweet creaminess…These snickerdoodles are so pretty with their sparkly white coating!

  2. First of all I am OBSESSED with Ziploc bags. I couldn’t live without them. Also, dipping these cookies in white chocolate is a pretty ingenious addition!

  3. Love this! So much chocolate dipping going on at our house the past couple weeks, this is another great idea to do next 🙂

  4. Snickerdoodles typically aren’t my go-to cookies, but I can’t resist anything dipped in white chocolate 😉

  5. Snickerdoodle is such a silly word! Thru were my favorite Christmas cookie when I was little, probably partly because of the silly name.

  6. We adore snickerdoodles, and I didn’t think that they could get much better. I stand corrected! These are beautiful, festive, and I imagine…delicious! Pinned!

  7. It’s been so long since we’ve made snickerdoodles. The chocolate dip is extra incentive, for sure!!

  8. I made these without the white chocolate dipping step and they were a huge hit! This will be our go-to snickerdoodle recipe from now on. They were so delicious!

  9. I also just made these without the white chocolate and they were so perfect! Soft and chewy and super easy to whip together 🙂 Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  10. Do you post recipes on any other site? I LOVE your recipes, but there are so many ads on this site that it really slows down my computer and causes problems at times. Please let me know <3

    I was so excited to make these for a holiday party and of course waited until the last minute – so when it was crunch time and the white chocolate chips burned and crumbled in the microwave instead of melting i was super frustrated. You may consider including a note with tips on how to melt standard white chocolate chips (half  power in an 1100 watt microwave  I learned on YouTube – although it still didn’t yield dippable chocolate – i had to slather it on like frosting) or  the suggestion to use legit melting chocolates. The cookies were otherwise delicious!

    I just made these and OMG!! they are delicious! The cookie is a perfect combination of butter and cinnamon that melts in your mouth and with the white chocolate–bam! The perfect amount of sweetness! This will be a new addition to my Christmas treats!

  13. My mom loves white chocolate so I wanted to make these for her. The cookie came out great but I dont have much experience dipping in chocolate and when I made these the chocolate didn’t harden. I looked up on the internet why that might happen and it said I need to temler the chocolate, which involves heating to a certain temp and then quickly cooling. I ended up keeping them in the fridge to keep the chocolate solid.
