This recipe is fantastic to make in advanced, and can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months. Simple shape chocolate sugar cookie dough into a disc (which makes rolling out very easy) and wrap in cling wrap and then place into an airtight zip bag. If you’re planning a Hello Kitty Birthday Party, you’ll be able to manage your time more efficiently by being able to make this dough well in advanced. I actually shared my recipe on my old website which is no longer with us, but since Eat Hello Kitty will be such a big hit, I wanted to share it again with new friends, so I hope you enjoy!
I loved making these simple and adorable Hello Kitty Chocolate Sugar Cookies from scratch for my kids and I. I used a very inexpensive Hello Kitty Cookie Cutter which was less than $4.00 from Japan via Amazon and colorful pearl sprinkles which added a special touch to Hello Kitty’s signature hair bow! I hope you enjoy this recipe! These cookie cutters have come in so handy for other baking projects as well. They’re extremely diverse and effective. They are a bit small, not to be mistaken for a larger or even average sized cookie. However, when offering a variety of confections at any function, it’s best to offer small portions. That way your guests can try a little of everything. So although these cookie cutter aren’t tiny, they aren’t very large either.
The colorful pearl sprinkles are added prior to baking. simply press one pearl into the center of Hello Kitty’s bow. They hold their shape and soften a little once cooled down so you don’t feel like you’re nomming on an actual pearl.
