Teleflora DisclosureWe have been baking up a storm, ordering Christmas presents, and thoroughly enjoying the holiday season this year.

One of our favorite holiday cartoons is A Charlie Brown Christmas, so of course, I was delighted when a Teleflora bouquet, placed in Snoopy’s Cookie Jar, showed up on my doorstep one chilly day in December.

Right away, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my cookie jar when the flowers faded away. Make a big batch of what I like to call Christmas Light Cookies. Because chocolate…

First things first, though. Isn’t this cookie jar adorable? It would make the perfect gift with just the right amount of Christmas treats carefully tucked inside.

The bouquet that came with it was equally beautiful with red miniature carnations, white button spray chrysanthemums, white cushion spray chrysanthemums, sprigs of noble fir, white pine, and seasonal decorations like shiny, red, ball ornaments and pinecones.

Not only can the recipient enjoy the beautiful bouquet, but after it fades, the cookie jar can be put to good use… A vase with a purpose… I love it!

The cookie jar itself reminded me of one of our favorite cookies.

Now, I usually make these cookies any time of the year, but when I thought about it, the candies in these cookies really do resemble Christmas lights! So, why not give them a new name… Christmas Light Cookies!

I’ve made these twice in the past week because they’re just that good. My kids gobble them up, but they also make great gifts.

Made similarly to my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies, these cookies are filled with mini milk chocolate candy bits, semi-sweet dark chocolate candy bits, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. They’re made for the chocolate lover in you.

My favorite time to eat them is fresh out of the oven, but as they age, they get even more of a chewy texture to them. I love a chocolaty cookie that’s good and chewy, don’t you? Chewy is best when it comes to any kind of cookie with chocolate chunks in it.

Chocolate Lover's Christmas Light Cookies

Chocolate Lover's Christmas Light Cookies

Christmas light cookies are filled with mini milk chocolate M&M's Minis, semi-sweet dark chocolate M&M's, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. They’re made for the chocolate lover in you.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 11 minutes
Total Time 41 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour, measure before sifting
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 heaping tsp. salt
  • 1/2 bag, 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 bag Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate M&M's Baking Bits
  • 3/4 bag Milk Chocolate M&M's Minis Holiday Baking Bits

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°.
  2. Cream butter and sugars together. It's up to you whether you use light brown or dark brown sugar, depending on your preferred cookie texture. I prefer light brown because it lends to a more golden, raised cookie with crunchy edges and a chewy, slightly cake-like center.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well.
  4. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Add sifted dry ingredients to creamed mixture, mixing well.
  6. Add chocolate chips and chocolate candies, thoroughly mixing into dough.
  7. At this point, nuts are an optional add-in, but I always make without.
  8. Drop by heaping teaspoon onto cookie sheet.
  9. Bake at 375° for 10-11 minutes, or until cookies are lightly golden and done.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
