So I’ve posted some from-scratch cupcake recipes from my friend’s blog, Got Cache?, that are absolutely delicious & sure to please, but if your family is anything like mine sometimes a quick & easy Christmas treat is all you can find time for between work, getting ready for Christmas day, & all the wonderful holiday celebrations with friends & family! While I love to bake & never go anywhere without bringing food or a baked good (guess that’s the southern breeding in me), often I go back to that semi-homemade concept I am such a fan of! You can make a tasty treat & put love & thoughtfulness into it without stressing yourself out & wasting the hours that seem in such short supply even more so this time of year! So my easy, festive, & yummy recipe of the day…*Quick side note before we get down to business: You’ll notice I didn’t specify a specific flavor of cookie dough or chocolate chip. Here’s why… it doesn’t matter lol That’s part of what I love about this recipe, endless possibilities! Just this week I have made: chocolate chip cookie dough with mint & dark chocolate chips (seasonal Nestle variety), peanut butter dough with semi-sweet chips & sprinkles, & chocolate chip dough with milk chocolate chips & sprinkles. So grab your favorite refrigerated dough and whatever chips your heart desires & lets get cooking! Another thing I love about this recipe idea is one tube of refrigerated dough makes between 20 – 24 cookie cups (depending on how full you fill them) so you can quickly make lots of perfectly bite size goodies for any party or get-together! Let me know if you give these a try! And in case I don’t have the time to post again today… Merry Christmas Eve!!!
