DIY Cookie Treats

We shared our cookie party post last week, and in case you missed it, here it is again along with some quick and easy cookie DIY treats!

What’s a party without yummy treats? With the help of some fabulous refrigerated cookie dough, we made a bunch of delicious cookie creations! First up, mini cookie cups. We used a mini-muffin pan to create these perfect bite-sized sundaes. Scoop cookie dough into the greased mini-muffin pan and bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees or until golden.

Once they come out of the oven, take the end of a wooden spoon and press down the center of the cup while still warm. Let the cookie cups fully cool before removing from the pan.

Next, top these mini treats with ice cream and all of the toppings—a melon baller works great for petite scoops of ice cream.

The second treats we are sharing are chocolate chip and birthday sugar cookie whoopie pies. Again we used refrigerated cookie dough to make the cookies. As a time saver, we found cookie filling icing that is already prepared and ready to go.

Ta-da! You can leave them plain or decorate with candies and sprinkles! They’re super easy, but nobody has to know that!

So what is a party without pizza? Well here is our version…a cookie pizza! We pressed cookie dough (approx 1/4″ dough) into a 9″ round greased cake pan and baked at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

We opted for a cake pan in lieu of a pizza pan so that the finished product was small enough to fit on our cake stand. Once the pizza cookie cooled, we place it onto a cake pedestal. Next we added white cookie icing and offered various toppings to decorate it. Candies such as gummy lifesavers cut into pieces resemble veggies to top off your pizza.

You could also bake the dough in individual pizza pans so that each child can have their own.

This last recipe is really easy to make and looks amazing! Here is our take on an Icebox Cookie Cake. It is as easy as cookies and whipped topping.

Alternate layers of cookies with whipped topping to create the desired height and shape you like (our cake had six layers). Top off with a large dollop of whipped topping, sprinkles and chocolate chips.

We hope you have as much fun at your cookie party as we did at ours!
