Friday was #NationalCookieDay, did you know that? What better way to kick off the month of December than with delicious baking treats! The boys and I were all-in on this festive day and created these fun Reindeer Cookie Bars to inspire all of you to get in the baking mood. 🙂
This is a partnered post. All opinions are my own.
These easy holiday treats will be a big hit at the holiday office party or next family get together. Did you know gingerbread cookies can easily be turned into a reindeer face once turned upside down? Yep – it’s true! Read on to grab this delicious recipe below.
First, I headed to Winn-Dixie to the products I needed for the recipe. Betty Crocker pouch cookie mixes are on sale 2 for $4 plus fuel perks! And if you buy 3 products, you can use this .75 off coupon too!
Reindeer Cookie Bars
- 1 pouch Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix
- 1 tbsp Gold Medal all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
- 1 egg
- 2 pouches (7 oz each) Betty Crocker Decorating Cookie chocolate icing (or 1 tub Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting)
- Candy eyes
- Red candies (for reindeer nose)
- 1 pouch (7 oz) Betty Crocker Decorating Cookie white icing
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, beat cookie mix, flour, butter and egg with electric mixer on low speed just until blended.
Pour cookie mix into a 12 x 7 baking dish. (I recommend placing a parchment paper baking sheet inside the dish for easy clean-up/transfer.) Bake for 15 minutes.
Transfer the cookie bar with parchment paper to a cooling rack. Once cooled, use a gingerbread man cookie cutter to make the reindeer faces. Turn the gingerbread upside down and outline each cookie with chocolate icing. Next, attach candy eyes (or use white icing if unavailable), and add a red candy for the nose. Decorate the cookie bar with white icing to look like icing. Let stand until set, then enjoy!
