Peppermint Crunch Dark Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies Recipe by The Frugal Girls

What could be easier than a four-ingredient cookie recipe? We bet you already have the eggs and canola oil, so all you need is cake mix and peppermint baking chips!

Best-Ever Chewy Gingerbread Cookies by Betty Crocker

Gingerbread is a holiday staple and you don’t have to be an expert baker to make it. Once you gather spices like cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon, you combine everything and let it sit in the fridge, then put it in the oven to bake.

No-Bake Christmas Tree Cookies by The Recipe Rebel

This is a great one to make with the entire family. Once you’ve made the coconut and powdered sugar mixture for the base, melt some chocolate and decorate with mini M&M’s or whatever candies you have.

Christmas Cream Cheese Mints by Salty Side Dish

As the name suggests, you’ll need cream cheese, powdered sugar, and mint extract. The key is here is to pay attention to your measurements and not overdo the liquid ingredients so your cookies will firm up.

You may have to gather several ingredients like ricotta cheese, pistachios, and orange zest, but everything is mixed into one bowl to make it easy for you. Once the cookies have baked and cooled, just drizzle them with chocolate.

Easy No-Bake White Chocolate Thin Mints by The View From Great Island

Take a thin cookie (like Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers) and coat it on both sides with white chocolate. Sprinkle crushed peppermint on top and let the chocolate harden. That’s it!

Marshmallow Roll Cookies by Rock Recipes

This recipe is a bit like turning a s’more into a cookie. You’ll need graham cracker crumbs, cocoa, and marshmallows. Once you have the cocoa mixture around the marshmallows, stick them in the freezer until you’re ready to serve.

Santa Graham Cookies by Living Well Mom

Want to have the cookie decorating experience without actually making cookies? Just pull out some graham crackers, icing, and decorating candy, like gumdrops and M&M’s.

Christmas Gooey Butter Cookies by Dear Crissy
