  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 10 ounces white and/or dark candy melts
  • 3/4 cup holiday sprinkles


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.
  • Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of a mixer and beat until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg, vanilla, flour, cocoa powder and salt. Beat on low speed until just combined.
  • Fill the cookie press with dough and press cookies onto the prepared sheet pans.
  • Bake each pan for 5-7 minutes or until just set. Cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack. Cool completely.
  • After all cookies have cooled, place the dark and white candy melts into two bowls. Microwave one bowl at a time in 30 second increments until melted, stir until smooth.
  • Dip the cookies halfway into the chocolate and decorate with sprinkles. If the dipping chocolate starts to harden, microwave for a few seconds to re-melt.
  • Let dry completely, then serve, or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
