Did you catch my first recipe earlier this week? You’ll definitely want to pin these pretty Mini Strawberry Mousse Tarts to make this Spring.
Now let’s talk about today’s recipe… Easter White Chocolate Dipped Sugar Cookies!
My toddler and I had lots of fun making these cute Easter cookies together. I started with a classic sugar cookie dough and used some Easter-themed cookie cutters to cut the shapes such as eggs and bunnies.
I used cookie cutters that I’ve had forever, but I found these similar Easter shapes that you can order on Amazon if you need them.
I used Adams Extract Vanilla in my cookie dough. The box says “twice as strong” and it definitely has an amazing vanilla flavor! It gave these sugar cookies such a wonderful vanilla flavor.
For the white chocolate, I used Adams Extract red food color to create a pastel pink color. You can use any pastel color (or even try multiple colors), but I thought the pink shade was super cute! I liked that these food colors are free from artificial dyes.
And to top off these adorable cookies I used Easter-themed sprinkles from Sprinkle Pop! I used the Signature sprinkle mix and the Egg Hunt sprinkle mix on these cookies. I loved all the colors and textures in these sprinkle mixes! The Egg Hunt mix even had cute little Easter bunnies and carrots in it.
Have you ever tried dipping cookies instead of frosting them? I used white chocolate melting wafers and melted them down before pouring into a cup that was wide enough to dip the cookies in. Then, I added a drop at a time of the Adams Extract red food color until I reached the desired pastel pink color.
You can use any color you would like or even try multiple colors!
Once the cookies were dipped, I quickly added some Sprinkle Pop sprinkles before the chocolate began to set. I let the cookies sit out until the chocolate was completely hardened. Then they were ready to serve or they can be kept in an airtight container for 3-5 days.
These Easter White Chocolate Dipped Sugar Cookies are the perfect little treat for all your Easter parties and gatherings this year. They are perfect for making and decoration with kids, too!

For the cookies
- 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the Decoration
- 10-15 oz white melting chocolate waters
- Easter Sprinkles
For the Cookies:
- In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
- In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Add the dry mixture into the wet mixture, a little at a time, and mix well until a dough forms.
- Chill the dough for at least 3 hours.
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Flour your surface and roll out the dough to about 1/4 of an inch. Use the cookie cutters to cut shapes. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until just beginning to brown.
- Transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
For the Decoration:
- Prepare your work station by laying out a big piece of parchment paper to set the dipped cookies on. Have your sprinkles ready as well.
- Melt the white chocolate wafers according to the directions on the package. Pour the melted chocolate into a small cup that is wide enough to dip the cookies in. Use any color of food color to dye the chocolate (I used red to create a pastel pink shade by adding one drop at a time until I reached the desired shade).
- Dip half of a cookie into the cup of melted chocolate. Place on parchment paper and decorate with sprinkles. Repeat for the remaining cookies.
- Once the chocolate has set, place the cookies on a serving tray to serve immediately or store in an airtight container for 3-5 days.
