For convenience, I use store-bought fortune cookies for this holiday fortune cookie recipe and buy holiday cookie toppings at the grocery store. Crush candy canes in your food processor for a minty surprise. You can buy candy coating, like Candy Melts at craft stores like Michael’s. This is a great activity for kids of all ages especially when it’s too cold to go outside.

Ingredients

24 fortune cookies

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or candy coating, such as Candy Melts

2 cup white chocolate chips or candy coating

Various holiday toppings of your choice such as nuts, sprinkles and crushed candy canes

Instructions

  • Place semi-sweet chocolate chips or candy coating and white chocolate chips or candy coating in separate ceramic bowls. Heat semi-sweet chocolate chips for 30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring between each interval until melted and smooth. Set aside. Repeat steps with white chocolate chips. You may use a double boiler alternatively to melt chocolate.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Place toppings in individual small bowls. Dip each cookie in semi-sweet or white chocolate and sprinkle with toppings as you desire. Place on cookie sheet. Once cookie sheet is full, place in freezer for 5 minutes to set. Remove and serve or store in an airtight container.
