Choose your favorite melted chocolate for dunking, such as milk chocolate, butterscotch, white chocolate, and more!

A drinking glass or coffee mug is the perfect size to melt the chocolate in and dip the cookies in. 

Swap the crushed candy cane for festive sprinkles as another option!

Once you start to roll out the dough, if you notice the edges are starting to crack, sprinkle some water onto your fingertips and seal the cracks by gently pressing the cracks together. Flour the dough and rolling pin before you start to roll again.

To avoid the dough sticking to the rolling pin, sprinkle the rolling pin and the dough with flour, but don’t overdo it because too much flour will dry out the cookies.
