Cookie Sticks


These Cookie Sticks are a fantastically easy way to make a quick batch of cookies! Plus, they are perfect for dunking!!

What makes you happy these days?

It’s Spring today, which makes me happy, even though it comes hand in hand with allergy season.

A good manicure makes me pretty happy especially if glitter polish is involved.

A clean house (if even for a moment) makes me exponentially happy.

The Bachelor has finally ended which makes me all sorts of happy, but a little sad at the same time.  But The Bachelorette will be starting soon, so….happy again!

Easter’s almost here which makes me happy because that means I can unabashedly decorate the house in pastel colors and not feel like I live inside an episode of The Golden Girls.

And of course cookies make me happy.

Of course.


And these Cookie Sticks make me even happier because I didn’t even have to use my mixer.  Just a bowl and a spoon.  Happy sigh.

Here’s what you do.

Mix your wet ingredients together first.  Yes, sugar is a wet ingredient, don’t ask.

Add your dry stuff and split it half…

Spread it out in two long rectangles on your lined baking sheet.

I found these yummies at the store last week…White Chocolate M&Ms.

I decided to give them a try here..

Press the M&Ms (or chocolate chips) on top before you bake.

Here’s the before and after…

Let them cool a bit and using a pizza cutter or knife cut into strips.

And that’s it…

Let them cool completely before eating, if you can wait!

I love the white chocolate chips and this idea is so fun and easy!

I’ve always wished that I celebrated Easter just so I could get an Easter basket full of candy… and now so I could make cookies with those pretty M&Ms!

Love the idea of cookie sticks because they are perfect for dunking in milk.

March 20, 2012 2:10 pm

oh boy that is a great idea, so many possibilities!

March 20, 2012 2:12 pm

Soooo cute! Love this idea!

March 20, 2012 2:13 pm

These are so delish looking and adorable! The M&Ms and the cookie STICK format…too cute!

March 20, 2012 2:18 pm

THESE COOKIES make me so happy!
And glitter nails. Glitter makes it better.


These are so cute! I need to get those M&M’s!

March 20, 2012 2:28 pm

How cute are these?? And since they are “thin” sticks, I can eat three or four of them without having to worry about calories, yes? :-)

March 20, 2012 2:28 pm

These are totally adorable. At Christmas time I made some bark with M&M’s on top of the candy layer. I encountered two problems. 1) I couldn’t cut a straight line, because I had distributed the candy too densely and too randomly. 2) The M&M’s didn’t adhere to the candy. Did you have either of these problems with these cookies? I was wondering what would happen if you sliced the cookie dough before baking and then stuffed the candies on it. Then you wouldn’t end up with cracked candy. But I still wonder if you had problems with them falling off.

These are PERFECT for spring! I actually picked up some of those white chocolate M&Ms a few weeks ago at Target (they sold out really fast). I was thinking about making rice krispie treats with them, but I might just have to make these as well. You can never have too much white chocolate, right? Right.

Congratulations on your website and recipes…
it’s beautiful.


March 20, 2012 2:39 pm

I’m left wondering about the white chocolate M&M’s? Thumbs up or down? I haven’t tried them yet but think they’ve got to be good. They’re M&M’s after all….

March 20, 2012 2:40 pm

These would be great for dipping into hot chocolate.

March 20, 2012 6:43 pm

Love the sticks and I need to find those M&M”s! So fun!

March 20, 2012 9:01 pm

I really hope it doesn’t take five million years for my local grocery store to get those M&M’s in stock. They’re so slow on the candy trends!

March 20, 2012 10:23 pm

If I use choc chips would I mix them in the dough or press in the top like the m&ms??

March 20, 2012 10:24 pm

This is what makes me happy. Very very happy!

March 20, 2012 10:38 pm

I always thought sugar was a wet ingredient! I love that M&Ms keep coming up with new flavors..but especially love all the awesome recipes everyone is creating! Love these. :)

March 21, 2012 5:52 am

These are fab – I know my boys would clear a plate of these in no time at all…but they’d have to beat me there first! LOL

You have great recipes as well as wonderful presentations. Keep up the good work.

I will definitely give this a try! I´m just wondering if I can replace the canola oil with some other type of oil? I actually don´t know what it is and if we have it here in Sweden…

March 21, 2012 12:10 pm

I love the stick idea. That totally means you can eat more! The cute shape is fun and the kids can just grab one and go…..or two or three…

March 21, 2012 4:08 pm

SO creative!! I am LOVING these! I pinned them and will DEFINITELY be making them with my easter color m&ms soon. :)

March 21, 2012 9:27 pm

Can I replace the canola oil with butter?


They are really creative and yummy :-)

March 22, 2012 9:11 am

These festive cookie sticks make me very happy too!! Beautiful :)

March 22, 2012 12:21 pm

What an awesome idea! These little cookie sticks would be great for a party, or for little kids. Love this idea!

March 22, 2012 2:15 pm

My 9 year old daughter needed a cookie recipe for her Girl Scout project, and when I found this, I knew it would be perfect! It took her all of 10 minutes to make these completely by herself! Thanks for making my job easier :)

You have a pretty good happy list going on…these cookies would make me happy too!

I made these Saturday because they looked so easy and pretty. They didn’t disappoint. I personally loved the white chocolate M&M’s. They were a nice change to just regular M&M’s. I shared them with our sweet elderly neighbors and they just loved them. My little ones adored them and were a nice surprise in their lunch boxes today. Sadly, they’re all gone now. Thanks for another fun, easy and delicious recipe!

March 27, 2012 10:52 pm

I made these tonight with my daughter (who’s 6). They were so quick & easy…and fun! She loved mixing by hand and pressing in the candy. We used the M&M’s speckled eggs since we couldn’t find the white chocolate M&M’s. Delicious!

March 28, 2012 5:49 pm
