Holiday Cookies

I’m a huge fan of simple Christmas recipes that make your life easier! I’ve made these fun white chocolate dipped Nilla Wafers with my boys a number of times over the last few weeks and just have to share them….even though it’s a no brainer recipe. Sometimes it’s nice to see you can jazz up a cookie and make it fun and festive for a last minute Holiday party!!

How To Make Simple Christmas Cookies

Holiday Cookies

The beauty of this recipe is you can use whatever small candy, chocolate chip or sprinkle you’ve got in your pantry. About anything goes with a Nilla Wafer. We’ve dipped these in the dark chocolate version too….equally as great 🙂

This is also a really fun recipe to have your guests help make. They can customize their own plate of dipped cookies.

Have fun!

  • 12 ounces White Chocolate Melts
  • 1 box Nilla Wafers
  • 1/4 cup Mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup crushed candy cane pieces for baking
  • 1/4 cup Mini M and M candies


  • Melt chocolate melts according to package direction. Dip Nilla Wafer Cookies into melted chocolate and lay onto a sheet of parchment paper. While chocolate is still warm, sprinkle tops of cookies with toppings of your choice. I used mini chocolate chips, crushed candy cane pieces and mini M and M candies. Use whatever small candy or sprinkle you have in the pantry! Place cookies in the freezer for 2 minutes to set chocolate. Serve room temperature. Enjoy!

    With big name released over the next handful of months such
    as Star Wars the Old Republic and Guild Wars 2, I wouldn’t be surprised if World of Warcraft
    will be a back burner game for most gamers.
    It looks quite odd against the languid lushness and Gothic majesty of the rest of
    the game. So aside from the forums (which is the Playerdex with sign ups), you also have
    an active community while the game is running.

    The latest batch of fun of One Piece 487 which can be accessed online
    as soon as it airs, is focused on Akainu. In the 405 a slightly
    heavier weight full grain leather is used and finished
    in wax hide, while the 403 uses aniline leather finished
    in Chromoexel. s the rule: just in front of your water
    tank, there are two mounting holes which secure
    the toilet seat to the toilet.

    Right now it looks like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
