These look super fun! My youngest son loves “rainbow” cookies (what he calls them). Thanks for the fun recipe, going to try it out!
This is EVERYTHING I love in a cookie!!! I love how festive it is with the Red and Green candies! Yum yum!!
Drop cookies are a favorite. I also load mine up with all the little bits of this and that I have in the cupboard. They’re so much fun to make with children, too. They can put what they like in their mix.
I love chocolate! These look so festive. I love the red and green candies.
