  • 1 package Krusteaz Gingerbread Cookie Mix
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate melting wafers or dark chocolate chips
  • Holiday sprinkles for topping if desired


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper or grease with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, add Krusteaz Gingerbread Cookie Mix, egg, and butter. Stir and/or use hands to knead until mixture forms a dough, may take several minutes.
  • Drop 1 rounded tablespoon of dough onto prepared pan and spread cookies 2 inches apart. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges of cookies are browned. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once cookies are completely cooled, add dark chocolate wafers/chips to a small bowl. Microwave on medium power for about 2 minutes to melt, stirring every 15 seconds so it doesn't burn.
  • Working one cookie at a time, dip halfway into chocolate and then place onto parchment paper to set. Sprinkle tops of chocolate with holiday sprinkles.
