Hanukkah starts today, and if you’re looking for easy Hanukkah cookies to make, then look no further! You can make and decorate these cookies in less than hour, and you all know that I love recipes that I can make and even multi-task with.
Do I participate in Hanukkah? No, I don’t. However, I have so many of my friends that observe this holiday, so I know they’re going to be super happy that I’m sharing this easy Hanukkah cookie recipe with them. Hanukkah is celebrating the festival of lights. The Menorah holds 9 candles. It commemorates how a one-day candle oil supply lasted for 8 days. The lighting of the candles represents the miracle. During Hanukkah, it’s all about family, prayers, gifts, gelt, and the best thing of all: food. So, I’m here to supply a recipe for Easy Hanukkah cookies! My mere small contribution that hope you all enjoy.

Easy Hanukkah Cookies Easy Ingredients
What’s my secret to these Easy Hanukkah Cookies? They’re made with cake mix. Yas! That’s how easy they are to make, plus I have a SUPER simple icing recipe for you to use on top. The Wilton sprinkles I actually bought from Michael’s in the baking area, but they are also available online at Amazon.
Easy Hanukkah Cookies Recipe with Icing
Easy Hanukkah Cookies
- 1 Box Classic white cake mix
- 2 Eggs
- 1/4 Cup vegetable oil
- 1 Cup powdered sugar
- 3-4 Teaspoons milk
- 2 Teaspoons light corn syrup
- 5-7 Drops blue food color
- 1/4 Teaspoon vanilla extract
- Wilton's Sprinkles
- In a medium sized bowl, add: cake mix, eggs, and oil. Mix well until a semi-firm ball has formed. Place in fridge.
- Pre-heat oven to 350.
- While oven is pre-heating, make icing.
- In a small bowl, add powdered sugar, light corn syrup, vanilla extract, and 2 teaspoons milk.
- Slowly mix the ingredients together. Keep adding remaining milk until you achieve a medium thick glossy consistency.
- Add in blue food color, and mix well. Continue adding blue color until you've achieve a light blue color.
- Take cookie mix out of the fridge. With a cookie scooper or tablespoon, roll out cookie balls and drop on parchment paper or silpat lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
- Allow to cool for 1 minute before transferring to a wire cookie rack. Once cookies have cooled to room temperature, you can ice them with using a teaspoon. Just a little dab will do and spread around evenly.
- Add your sprinkles on top of the cookies before the icing solidifies.
Not only are these Easy Hanukkah cookies simple to make, but they’re so delicious and beautiful to look at. Everyone will definitely enjoy them! I hope you enjoy this recipe, and that it was super easy to follow along with.
