We're doing a cookie exchange with friends this year and I've been trying to figure out something festive and fun, but easy to make too. This wreath cookie recipe is the perfect combination of Christmas cookie fun and "don't have a lot of time to make these" goodness.
I'll be making a few batches and putting them in tins, but you could easily slip them into cellophane bags to share with neighbors and friends if you wanted to. They're a great, low-cost Christmas gift alternative!

Wreath Christmas Cookie Recipe
- Round, pre-made cookies with a center hole (here's what we used)
- Green Candy Melts
- Red Candy Melts
- Christmas Sprinkles
- Parchment Paper
- Piping Bag or a Ziploc baggie
- Lay a piece of parchment paper over the counter workspace.
- Melt the green candy melts according to package instructions.
- Dip a cookie into the green candy melts.
- Before it has a chance to harden, sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles. We used a mix of green sugar crystals for some texture and small red and green balls to resemble ornaments.
- Set on the parchment paper to set.
- Melt the red candy melts according to package instructions.
- Move to a piping bag or a ziploc bag. If using a ziploc bag, cut a small hole in the corner.
- Pipe a small bow on the wreath. Allow to set.
