- Pour in the eggs and egg yolk and mix.
- Once combined add n the flour, baking soda and a pinch of salt. Continue mixing until all ingredients are fully combined.
- Fold in your Wickedly Welsh Chocolate chunks before scrape the cookie dough into the baking tray. Your cookie dough layer shouldn’t be too thick as you will be cutting out the Christmas tree shapes once baked. We suggest about 1-2 inches thick depending on your cookie cutter.
- Bake in the oven for approximately 20 minutes or until the cookies have become golden. Keep an eye on your cookies to avoid burning.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
- Once cooled, use your Christmas tree shaped cookie cutter to cut out you shapes. Try and use as much of the cookie as possible to create your tree cookies before enjoying any of the left over cookie that didn’t fit into the cookie cutter.
- Melt your Wickedly White chocolate bar. Once melted add in a few drops of green food colouring to create your desired Christmas tree green. Start off with one and add more accordingly.
- Decorate your Christmas tree cookies with a layer of the green melted chocolate mix. Add hundreds and thousands to give the illusion of Christmas tree decorations. (optional)
- Allow to cool for a few minutes before tucking in!
