Does one need a holiday to have an excuse to eat cookies? I guess not, but these cookies are perfect for Easter, right? And it is SO easy to decorate these Easter egg cookies, the kids can help too!
We made bone cookies and decorated it in this way at the beginning of the year for my son’s Paw Patrol Party. It is just a simple way to spruce up ordinary sugar cookies and it is yummy too!
- Any sugar cookie recipe(we used our favorite recipe, find the recipe card at the end of this post)
- White chocolate
You’ll need an egg shape cookie cutter and a roller. Roll out the dough and press the shapes. Bake the cookies until golden brown and let them cool down.
Melt the chocolate. I always use two containers, the bottom one is filled with water, the top one has the chocolate. This way the chocolate melts gradually and won’t burn. And once it is out of the microwave, it stays warm and does not harden that quickly.
Then simply dip part of the cookie into the chocolate, let it drip for a few seconds, and then dip in the sprinkles! It is such a fun process, but be warned, it does get messy if there is kids involved!
This will be a fun activity to do at an Easter get-together, everyone can get involved in decorating their cookies and take some home as favors.
Easy, pretty and yummy Easter egg cookies!

Not really a review yet, just wondering if I will be able to stack these cookies, should I melt the chocolate like the way you did because it will not get hard?

It does get hard(sort off), but when it touches, it does stick together a bit. This will obviously depend on your weather too. Do place it in the fridge before you stack it, and see, perhaps, it will help? Let me know please?
