Looking to make easy Christmas cookies? Check out this quick and easy recipe that is super delicious and great to make with the kids!

When I’m invited to cookie exchanges, I always have these grand ideas of things that I want to make.

I’m going to make the coolest cookies that are really delicious and look really festive and fun.

It will spend hours making them perfect.

But then time gets away from me, I procrastinate and am left needing 6 dozen cookies on the fly.

So what can I make?

Easy Christmas Cookies

These easy Christmas cookies are a simple solution because they are simple and quick to make with little prep work and minimal clean-up.

Sounds too good to be true, right?

When my kids were young, I loved getting them involved with any recipes I was making.

This easy Christmas cookie recipe is a good one to get even the littlest of the littles involved with because they can help separate the candies by color and unwrap the chocolate kisses.

The hardest part is keeping them from eating all the candy before you finish making the cookies!

It seriously does not get any easier than this recipe.

And it’s really good to boot!

What I love most about it is you can switch up the candies to whatever you want to use.

I love to use Peanut Butter M&M’s®️ but I’ve seen them made with mint chocolate and peanut M&M’s®️ too.

You can also use white, milk or dark chocolate kisses. But note, if you use white chocolate, it melts a little quicker in the oven so keep an eye on it.

    This is a must try with a variety of types of M&Ms. Why the need to separate the red and green?

    I made this for Christmas last year 200 degrees is too high a temperature. I used the lowest setting o my oven. Assemble was quite messy.
