Chocolate chip sprinkle cookies are soft chewy cookies rolled in some serious sprinkles. Switch up the sprinkles for which ever holiday or occasion

It’s Friday! So how about some sugar mixed in with more sugar and rolled in sprinkles of sugar? Sound good?

Chocolate chip cookies were the first baking recipe that I taught myself how to make {thank you Nestle Tollhouse!}. And 20+ years later I still can’t make them without looking at a recipe. It’s a pretty simple recipe too… flour, sugar, eggs etc. Yet I cannot remember if it’s a cup or 3/4 or a teaspoon or two. I have the world’s worst memory and I’m only 33.

That’s not good. 

Since we’ve established that my memory is crud. How about something positive… in the form of soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies rolled in colorful sprinkles. After all Fridays were meant to have sprinkles, right?

I probably could have gotten a tad more creative about the cookie underneath the sprinkles. Truth be told ANY cookie can be rolled around in a bowl of sprinkles. But it was both of my daughters’ idea so I went with it and held the camera as they measured, mixed and made the cookies that will probably throw them and everyone else into some form of diabetic shock.

Whisk that together and set off to the side.

Throw two sticks of unsalted butter into a mixer. Fun Fact: At one point in my life {like early-twenties} I always bought unsalted butter. Like for bread smearing, popcorn drizzling… you name it. Why? I ask myself that ALL the time. I guess I didn’t realize there was a taste difference between salted and unsalted butter. OMG. There so is!

Allow the chocolate chip sprinkle cookies to cool for a few minutes on the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Truth: I prefer chocolate chip cookies the next day, when the chips are solid again. Don’t get me wrong, I will still eat {and love} a warm, gooey cookie from the oven.
