I’m fluent in six year old text, so I’m pretty sure that was a “not fair” rather than “no far”. I also know that my remembers everything niece is going to hold me to that cookie making promise. That’s why I picked up a fun supply of baking gear from the Northpole Collection. There are tons of fun toys and gifts inspired by the Hallmark Channel Movie Northpole.
This set makes it easy and fun to get kids cooking. It also comes with several cookie recipes to get you started. Want to convert your own recipes? 1 boot = 1/2 cup. 1 mitten = 1/4 cup. 1 jingle bell = 1 teaspoon.

I’m no good when it comes to rolling and cutting out cookies. That’s why I love this recipe. No rolling required. A scoop, a pat and they’re ready to bake. The cookie tastes sort of like shortbread. I think I want to try to make a s’mores cookie using this as the base. But…I digress…
- 6 jingle bells light corn syrup (2 Tablespoons)
- 6 jingle bells milk (2 Tablespoons)
- 2 boots powdered sugar (1 cup)
- Peppermint Candy Chips
- Combine corn syrup and milk together in a bowl.
- Slowly mix in powdered sugar.
- Pour on cooled cookies.
- Add peppermint candy chips and pat lightly.
- Allow to harden.
The cookie icing is easy to make. It also doesn’t require cookie decorating skills. Just spoon on and let gravity do the work. I also sprinkled on peppermint chips to help hide any decorating flaws. And to make them taste like peppermint, of course. My nieces love peppermint.
The recipe makes over 30 cookies. More than enough to share.
