Halloween Cookie Swirls!

Halloween Swirl Cookies!!!
These festive, fun cookies are made with refrigerated cookie dough, and are SO easy!  A little chocolate on the bottom and you have not only cute cookies, but really yummy ones as well!!!!

I keep seeing these swirled cookies online and I decided I simply had to try them in halloween colors this year.  They were a little time consuming, simply because you need to color your cookie dough and then blend the colors together.  Not hard at all– but set aside a little prep time.

Want to see how to put these together?  Here’s the recipe: (printable version)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tube refrigerated cookie dough (I used Pillsbury)
  • Gel food coloring in the colors you desire
  • 1 bag of Wiltons dark chocolate candy melts.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Divide cookie dough into 4 equal parts and color each part using food color gels. (I recommend wearing food-prep gloves to save your hands from being colored along with the dough!   Also, start with the lightest color 1st)
  • Starting with the lightest color, divide each part of dough into small balls (about the size of a small grape)
  • Take one ball of each color in your hand, and gently squeeze it into a 4-color ball.

  • Roll each ball out into a long strip and then gently coil it together into a cookie.  Tuck end under cookie and gently place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet.

  • Bake at 350F degrees for time recommended on cookie dough tube.
  • Remove from oven by sliding parchment paper off cookie sheet and on to a flat surface.
  • Cool cookies completely
  • Melt Wiltons candy melts in 30 second increments in the microwave, stirring between until smooth.
  • Spoon a bit of melted chocolate on a clean piece of parchment paper- make it about the size of one cookie.
  • Gently press a cookie on top of the chocolate until you can see it around the edges.
  • Allow chocolate to cool and harden.
  • Peel away parchment paper and ENJOY your cute cookies!!!!

My thoughts:  These were a fun Halloween baking project.  I really enjoyed how each cookie looked so unique and I learned as I went how to swirl them most effectively (so that all the colors can be seen on top).  I loved using the pre-made cookie dough, that saved a lot of time!  I hope you get a chance to try these!!!  Enjoy!!  ~r
