Ok guys, night 6 of Chanukah is here. It makes me sad to think we’re almost finished with this beautiful holiday! Tonight we’re at a family party at my in-laws with all the cousins! So, I prepared something really fun for all the kids (and some adults) to do!

This recipe is a little trickier than the others that I’ve posted so far, but it’s such a special Chanukah activity and snack that I really didn’t want to skip it! In addition to being a few more steps than my normal recipes, this one also requires a little more time. So bear with me and plan ahead…

We’re making Paint Your Own Chanukah Cookies! It’s and activity and cookie all in one!

We make a sugar cookie dough, and I have an amazing recipe for you from @naomi_tgis with no butter or margarine (!!). We cut out Chanukah shapes (obviously!) and we frost them with plain white royal icing.

Once they’re set, overnight, the fun begins, and we paint the cookies with gel food coloring and paint brushes (used only for food).

Since we were travelling a bit to get to the party I decided to make the paint available on a separate cookie for each kid. But painting with gel colors works perfectly on these!

I made sure to have enough small paintbrushes and set up each kid with a decorating station of their own. A small piece of parchment paper, a paintbrush, and some cookies. I set up a tester for my kids a few nights ago to make sure it worked and it was perfect! Can’t wait to see how the cousins love it tonight!

Happy night #6!!
