These sparkly pink zebra striped cookies are so cute and super easy to make! I first spotted the on the A to Zebra Celebrations Facebook page and then again on the blog Life Is Sweets. I knew they'd be delicious *hello, peanut butter & chocolate!* but I didn't want to make them from scratch so I put my own twist on the recipe......
I used Krusteaz Peanut Cookie Mix! Step 1 on the box says to mix together the wet ingredients (1 egg, 1 tablespoon of water, 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil) this is the stage where I whisked in the food coloring. I used about 30 drops of neon pink liquid food coloring to achieve this color!
Then I added in the packaged mix and mixed it together with a wood spoon to form a dough. I rolled the dough into 2 inch balls, dredged them in pink sanding sugar (this makes them extra pink and oh, so glamorous!) and baked at 375˚ for 10 minutes.
Finally, I pressed a Hershey's Hug in to the center of each cookie as soon as they came out of the oven and allowed them to cool completely before taking them off of the baking sheet.
Don't try to move the cookies on to cooling racks. The chocolate on the top sinks through the bottom and it looks like a mess. Trust me on this one. :)
These cookies look FABULOUS and taste divine! Make them for your next party and be ready for the compliments!
