Sometimes you just need to get out the sprinkles and have some fun with your food! It’s a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen too.

When my kids were younger, they were all about eating the delicious food that was coming out of the kitchen, but getting them to help make it was more of a chore.

But if I pulled out the sprinkles, they were guaranteed to be begging me to let them help! Not only are the colors fun, but getting to roll the balls of cookie dough until they’re covered is apparently a blast when you’re a little kid.

And I get it. I really do. There’s something about all those colors that I swear make everything taste better too!

These cookies are really just a simple peanut butter cookie dough, but instead of rolling them in sugar and then using a fork to flatten them, we roll them in sprinkles and leave them a ball shape on the cookie sheet. It helps them puff up and stay nice and soft inside.

These cookies are so much fun to coordinate to whatever you’re celebrating:

  • red and green sprinkles for Christmas
  • pastel colors for Easter
  • pink or blue for a baby shower
  • school colors for a graduation party
  • or teach your kids colors as toddlers by telling them to roll in a specific color and helping guide them to the correct one. It’s a great sensory teaching activity!
