Tips & Tricks When Making Green Christmas Wreath Cookies
- Finding The Cookies – Pinwheel cookies can be found in the cookie aisle of your grocery store. Just be sure to get the kind with holes in the center to give them their wreath appearance!
- Freeze The Cookies – Place the pinwheel cookies in the freezer for at least an hour before making this recipe. That way they harden up a bit before decorating! Ensuring they don’t melt or affect their shape in the warm chocolate.
- Peel & Tie – While the cookies freeze, use that time to pull apart the Twizzlers. This will give you 12 individual strings. Afterward, tie each one into a small bow, I found using the bunny ear method worked best!
- Dip The Cookies – Melt the chocolate in the microwave being careful not to overheat it. Once the chocolate is melted then take the cookies out of the freezer and dip them. Hold each one upside down and dip just the tops into the chocolate.
- Add The Decorations – It’s important to add the bow and Christmas-colored sprinkles onto the cookies as soon as it’s been dipped. That way the edible decorations stick nicely to the cookie!
These Christmas Wreath cookies make it super simple to add edible fun to the holidays for all of the kids in your life! Set out a variety of sprinkles and decorations then watch them excitedly decorate their very one wreath!

How To Store Christmas Wreath Cookies
Once the cookies have set up, wrap them with plastic wrap. Then place them in the refrigerator to enjoy for up to 3 days!
Can I Just Dip The Entire Cookie In Melted Chocolate?
You certainly can just dip the entire cookie when making these Christmas Wreath Cookies. Just keep in mind that it can be messy and may make for a very sweet cookie!
Why Didn’t My Bow And Sprinkles Stick To My Cookies?
The wreath decorations likely didn’t stick to the cookies because it wasn’t done right away. Giving time for the chocolate to harden without the decorations.
It’s important to decorate the cookies immediately after you dip one or two. That way they’re part of the hardening process and stick securely to the cookie.
I Don’t Like Marshmallow Cookies But Love The Idea Of Wreath Cookies, Is There Another Way To Make Them?
This recipe is intended to be a no-bake, easy recipe! However, you can get a similar wreath cookie using Classic Christmas Sugar Cookies.
Simply roll the dough out and use a biscuit cutter to cut circles out. Then use a smaller circle to cut the centers out, giving the cookies a donut-looking appearance.
Then bake them and top them with Frosting that’s been dyed with green gel food coloring. Afterward, add your edible decorations to your Christmas wreath sugar cookies!
