1 Tbsp. butter
1 Bag of chocolate chips (20 oz.)

3) Dip cookies and spread the melted chocolate frosting with a knife or spatula.

4) Dust with sprinkles and put in the fridge until the chocolate hardens.

5) Use jelly beans, candy canes, even pretzels to decorate. Cut the jelly beans in half to use as buttons, noses, eyes; candy canes or pretzels can be antlers. Simply use the melted chocolate frosting as "glue" to attach to the cookies. Use your imagination!

6) Enjoy!
