Hanukkah Coin Cookies

February 12th, 2013 posted by Tami Rose

These chocolate cookies will add a festive touch to your Hanukkah table. This recipe is easy enough for even the smallest helpers to get in on the fun. Their hard work will really pay off!

What You Need:

1 box chocolate cake mix 2 eggs 1/3-cup oil 1 can chocolate frosting 1 can vanilla frosting Yellow paste food coloring Yellow sugar sprinkles

What You Do:

Heat oven to 350*F. Beat together cake mix, eggs & oil. Roll cookie dough into 2 in. balls, place on an ungreased cookie sheet, and then slightly flatten. Leave room for the cookies to spread out while baking. Bake for 7-8 minutes – do not over bake, as they will harden slightly while cooling. Cool completely before icing. While the cookies are cooling, tint the vanilla frosting dark yellow. Fill a small plastic Baggie with 1/3 of the frosting, creating a frosting bag. Barely snip one corner of the Baggie. Use this frosting to draw pictures on the chocolate frosted cookies. Frost half of the cookies with the leftover yellow icing. Top with yellow sugar sprinkles. Frost the remaining cookies with chocolate frosting and decorate with the Star of David, a Menorah, “2007” etc., using the yellow frosting in the frosting bag.

To Freeze:

Lay cookies in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Freeze. Once the cookies are frozen, they can be layered in a container in-between sheets of wax paper. Make sure to thaw in a single layer to avoid the cookies sticking together.
