Christmas Chocolate Chip Cookies are packed full of bright, holiday sprinkles. This transforms your ordinary cookie recipe into a festive Christmas dessert.

Making Christmas cookies with my kids over the winter break is one of my favorite things to do. We have so many favorites like Melted Snowman Cookies, Eggnog Cookies, Hot Chocolate Cookies and Penguin Nutter Butters. This one is quickly topping the ranks as a new family favorite.

The best cookies to me are always the ones that are moist, soft and full of chocolate. Lucky for me, this recipe hits every one of those requirements. When these are fresh out of the coven and you serve them with a glass of milk, they are heaven.

How To Make Chocolate Chip Cookies for Christmas


  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Eggs
  • Flour
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Chocolate Chips
  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Holiday sprinkles

Christmas Chocolate Chip Cookies

Start by combining the butter, sugars and vanilla until mixed. Then add the egg and next the rest of the dry ingredients.

Now the fun part! Fill your batter with all of your favorite holiday sprinkles and chocolate chips. You can use plain red and green or go a little crazy with the ones shaped like Christmas trees and ornaments. Or do a snow theme with blue and white. Small sprinkles or big. Get creative!

Bake them for roughly 15 minutes (longer if your cookies are larger) or until you see the edges start to brown.

This batch makes a dozen cookies. If you’re heading to a cookie exchange party or serving just the family, you may want to double or triple this recipe. To make it go further, you can also make the cookie size smaller.

You can save them for up to 5 days in an airtight container at room temperature.

  • 1 stick of butter - melted
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons of Vanilla
  • 1 2/3 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup of red and green sprinkles more for the cookie tops


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, add the butter, brown sugar, sugar, and Vanilla, and mix until well blended.
  • Add the egg, and blend.
  • Add the flour, baking soda and salt, and blend into the dough until well mixed.
  • Remove the mixing bowl, and gently fold in the chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and the sprinkles until well blended into the dough.
  • The dough will be soft, so just pull enough for a large cookie, roll it into a ball, and place it on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with the sprinkles, and bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown around the edges.
  • Remove from the oven, and leave them on the cookie sheet to cool.
  • When cooled, serve immediately, or store in an airtight container until time to serve.


If you don't want to make large cookies, you'll probably get 18 to 20 smaller cookies (regular size) from this recipe. You can double the recipe and make a double batch or triple batch if you need more than a dozen large cookies.
