Here is a cookie appropriate for Planet Christmas!

These are christmas light strings made with M&Ms and purchased cookie dough. It couldn't get much easier!

  • Prep Time: 10 min.
  • Bake Time: 45 min.
  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Yield: Makes 24 cookies.

2/3 cup flour
  • 1 18 oz. roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1½ cups prepared vanilla frosting
  • 3 cups M&M’S® Brand Minis Chocolate Candies
  • 4 strands red licorice laces
  • Resealable plastic bags
  • Drinking straw
  • Christmas light shaped cookie cutter (small)

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2. Knead the flour into the cookie dough until smooth.
  • 3. Roll the dough out to 1/4-inch thickness. By hand, or using a Christmas light cookie cutter, cut out shapes.
  • 4. With a spatula, gently transfer the cookies to a baking sheet. Using a drinking straw, press a hole at the top of each cookie.
  • 5. Bake for 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
  • 6. Separate different colors of M&M’S® Brand Minis Chocolate Candies, and set aside.
  • 7. Spread vanilla frosting on top of each cookie. Arrange a solid color of M&M’S® Brand Minis Chocolate Candies on top of each cookie.
  • 8. Let the cookies dry for 30 minutes. Run licorice laces through each hole, connecting the cookies into one continuous strand.
  • 9. Tip for a quicker and lighter version: Tint frosting to match the M&M'S® Brand Minis Chocolate Candies. Frost the cookies and then decorate with color coodinated M&M'S® Brand Minis Chocolate Candies.
