8 Out-of-the-Box Christmas Cookie Decoration Ideas

By Jason Parks 7 months ago 283 Views No comments

It’s almost September, which means the most wonderful time of the year is only a few short months away. The holiday season is special for a number of reasons. For one, it’s a season devoted to spending time with loved ones. It’s also a time to reflect on the year as a whole and to give thanks. However, it’s also a time to bring out your most beloved holiday traditions. Whether you enjoy decorating the tree or decking the halls, everyone has a favorite seasonal activity. One of the most popular and time-honored holiday activities is decorating Christmas cookies. While decorating gingerbread men and snowflakes will always be fun, creating the same designs every year can get old. If you’re looking to branch out, these eight decoration ideas are sure to breathe new life into your favorite cookie recipes.

Half-dipped “ornaments”

If you love making ornament-shaped Christmas cookies, try this trend. After making a circular, bulb-shaped cookie, dip half of it in melted chocolate. Then, either leave the chocolate as is, or decorate the chocolate-covered half with sprinkles or other small candies. These fun cookies require little effort, but end up looking great.

Ornamental copycats

For another creative decoration idea that involves ornaments, try recreating the design of your favorite ornament on a cookie. Simply bake the cookie in the shape of that particular ornament and grab some colored icing. After that, tap into your artistic skills and get to work!

Haute snowmen

Sick of the same old snowmen cookies? Maybe it’s time to spice them up. Instead of the corncob pipe and top hat, try giving your snowmen cookies varied accessories. Plenty of interesting and edible accessories can be found in the baking aisle of your local grocery store. Use these to create scarves, hats, and even shoes for your snowmen.

Ugly Christmas sweaters

Let’s be honest, ugly Christmas sweaters are a staple of the holiday season; the two go together like peanut butter and jelly. If you’re already seeing them everywhere, why not work them into your Christmas cookie repertoire? Even better, make an ugly Christmas sweater cookie that matches a sweater you already have.

Miniature gingerbread houses

No time to make a full-sized gingerbread house this year? Try making a cookie version! Just use a house-shaped cookie cutter, various candies, and plenty of icing.

Bite-sized look-alikes

What better to go with your mini gingerbread house than a mini cookie family? Whether modeled after your own family or conjured up from your imagination, personalized gingerbread people are a fun take on this holiday classic.

Poinsettia cookies

These bold and beautiful holiday flowers look just as good as Christmas cookies as they do around your home. Depending on what look you want, you can create these cookies in two different ways. If you’re looking for a faster and easier way to put these cookies together, you can simply use red icing to create the iconic holiday flower. However, if you’re looking for a more intricate design, you can create individual petal cookies and place them together to create the Poinsettia.

Smitten with mittens

Winter essentials, like mittens, make great Christmas cookies. Mitten-shaped cookie cutters are inexpensive and easy to find, making this a must for your holiday cookie batch. You can then stock up on icing and design your own mittens, or model them after a pair you already own. Want a full set? Create a hat or scarf cookie to match.

We hope these decorative ideas inspired you to start planning some out-of-the-box Christmas cookies ideas for this holiday season. Want to show off your creations? Make sure to share some photos of your holiday masterpieces with us!

While it’s no secret that everyone loves cookies, the way people go about eating their favorite treat varies greatly. Although there are a truly unlimited ways to enjoy cookies, here are some of our favorite ways to eat them!

Cookies with milk

The classic. Dunking a warm, chocolate chip cookie into a cold glass of milk is one of the most satisfying ways to enjoy this sweet treat, and also probably the most common. From the after school snack to what’s left out for Santa, cookies and milk is something that can be enjoyed by anyone.

The smooth, creamy flavor of the milk complements the crunchiness of the cookie perfectly, which is exactly what makes it the perfect drink for washing down everyone’s favorite snack.

Ice cream sandwich cookies

One of the most iconic treats of summer is the ice cream sandwich. You can’t go wrong with a thick block of ice cream nestled between two delicious cookies. Whether or not you choose two of the same cookie or decide to switch it up and mix and match, there is no bad combination of an ice cream sandwich.

It’s no wonder the sound of the ice cream truck in the summer has kids running to get their own ice cream sandwich!


What’s better than raw cookie dough? Eating it when your mom said you can’t. Eating cookies raw is nostalgic and brings you back to your childhood memories of baking with your mom, which is why it’s one of the best ways to eat cookies.

No matter if you make cookie dough with the intention of eating it raw, or if you just like to lick the spoon after you make the batter, there’s no question that raw cookie dough will make you smile.

Cookie cake

Nothing is more traditional than a cookie cake at a birthday party. While it reminds you of your childhood, the cookie cake is something that can be enjoyed at all ages.

It’s the best option for frosting lovers and haters alike, and the design options are endless, which makes it perfect for any occasion. Cookie cakes are also perfect because they come in many sizes, making them the perfect treat for one person or for many.

Cookies with good company

No matter how you choose to enjoy your cookies, the absolute best way to eat them is when you share them with the people you love. You can give cookies for any number of reasons, or for absolutely no reason at all.

No matter what makes you choose to give someone cookies, we know that it will definitely make their day much sweeter. So the next time you’re in the mood to enjoy some cookies, pick up a few extra to share!
