Step Four: Bake

  • Now you will bake the cake box cookies just until they are set. Don’t overbake.

Pro Tip: be careful not to overbake these St Patrick’s Day Cookies, they should be very soft when they’re done. They may even look undercooked but will continue to set up as they cool. If you overbake, they will have a more cake-like consistency.

Step Five: Melt Chocolate

  • As the cookies are cooling, add the chopped white chocolate to a microwave safe bowl, and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring between each heat session, until the chocolate is fully melted.

  • Working with one cookie at a time, dip a cookie into the chocolate, about ⅓ of the way, then set on it a parchment lined baking sheet or counter. Immediately add sprinkles.

Step Seven: Allow Cookies to Set

  • Allow to sit until the chocolate has set completely.

And there you have it! Super soft and extra fun St. Patrick’s Day cookies that are perfect for celebrating with your little Leprechauns.
