Ingredients

  • 1 batch of your favorite no-spread sugar cookie dough I used my Vegan Sugar Cookie recipe
  • 1 batch of Coke Candy
  • Some cool LARGE Christmas cookie cutters or if you don’t have the ones you want, you can improvise (I have an easy No Cookie Cutter, No Problem tutorial). I had to improvise and went with a cute polar bear theme.
  • Some TINY cookie cutters that fit well inside of your large cookie cutters. These can be tiny hearts leaves, whatever. I couldn’t find mine and was already improvising, so I just went with hearts.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Do not oil. Set aside.
  3. Roll-out the cookie dough into a 1/4-inch thick shape.
  4. Using your LARGE cookie cutters, cut out all of your large shapes and place on your lined cookie sheets.
  5. Using your TINY cookie cutters, cut out ONE shape out of the center-ish of the large cookie shape. Now, you need to make certain that there is a good bit of cookie dough all around the edge or your candy will leak out when it melts.
  6. Fill the hole with tiny bits of the Coke Candy. You want to really fill the hole, but not overfill. I know that sounds confusing, but you need to basically cover the bottom of the hole so you can’t see it and still have about half again that amount of candy stuffed in there.
  7. Place in the oven for 10 minutes.
  8. Immediately remove and allow to cool completely (COMPLETELY) before moving off the baking sheet. If you move them early, the candy will not stay in the cookie.
  9. Now you can eat them. But, remember, you’re supposed to be giving these away at a gift exchange, so, keep that in mind and don’t eat ALL of them…just a few. You know, to taste-test.
