Obsessed with the new Pokémon Go game? I don’t think anyone thought this game would actually change the world! But it already has. People are still wandering around staring at their phones, but now there’s a sense of community about that activity. It’s really inspiring! People are probably going to meet and become friends because of this game, then go on and make a difference!
What better way to celebrate world-changing friendships (or a really great app game) than with an easy cookie recipe? Our Test Kitchen chef Christina Hammond made this Pokémon Go Inspired Cookies Recipe. The cookies resemble Pokéballs. Man, I am always running out of those lately. I need to hit up some Pokéstops.
While all you fellow Pokémon nerds are listening, I have a question for you. What Pokémon is dominating your area? Here in Northern Illinois, I’m seeing a lot of Weedles. However, I was down in Alabama this weekend, and they have an amazing number of Zubats all over Birmingham. I’m wondering if each city/state has its own characteristic Pokémon in droves. What’s around you? And what’s the coolest Pokémon you’ve caught so far? Let us know in the comments. 🙂
Pokémon Go Inspired Cookies Recipe
- 1 tube of prepared sugar cookie dough, such as Pillsbury
- 1 tub of white frosting
- food coloring
- white chocolate chips to decorate
- Bake cookies according to package directions and allow to cool completely.
- Divide tub of frosting into small bowls as follows:
1/4 tub for black
split remaining into two bowls for white and red
- In the bowl for the black frosting, add equal amounts of blue, red and yellow food coloring to make a very dark color. Adjust colors as needed to make a color of your liking. Alternately, you can purchase pre-made black frosting.
- For the red, add a generous amount of red food dye to the frosting. Mix well. Adjust color as needed.
- Add frostings to piping bags and snip off the tips. Use a zip-top bag if you don’t have piping bags.
- To begin, make a large black dot in the center of each cookie. Add a stripe across the middle. Allow this color to set for about an hour.
- Pipe a white ring on around the edge of half the cookie and fill in the space below to the black stripe. Smooth with a toothpick.
- Repeat with the red on the other side of the cookie.
- Finally, press a chocolate chip into the center of the black dot.
- Chill in the fridge for one hour. Serve immediately.
