So let’s talk about fun cookie combinations!

Wanna upgrade?  Sweet!  Here’s some cool vegan ideas, but make sure the add-ins you choose are vegan! 

Chocolate Chips

Always be sure to check your local grocery stores, too, which may carry an “accidentally vegan” brand. Simply look at ingredients for milk or whey when choosing your beloved chocolate chips!

Vegan Frostings and Icings 

Some frostings are made with butter, cream cheese, or other dairy “products,” and if you eat those, you support inherent cruelty to cows. Try these vegan varieties:

Vegan Sprinkles and Edible Glitters

When choosing sprinkles, watch out for confectioner’s glaze, which is made from the bodies of insects who didn’t want to die. Try these cruelty-free options and check labels from these brands that do carry some vegan options.

Vegan Food Colorings

When it comes to food coloring, avoid animal-derived ingredients—such as carmine (aka cochineal extract, crimson lake, and natural red 4), which comes from the female cochineal insect. Here are some vegan options:

Of course, don’t count out using dried fruits, coconut and nuts in your cookies to give it a little crunch or texture.  The kids are gonna love these!!

Dried fruit is almost always vegan, but it’s not always. Prepacked dried fruit can have animal contaminants if it’s made in the same facilities that process eggs, dairy or meat. Some dried fruits can be considered non-vegan, like figs. So, if the label says eggs, dairy, meat or honey explicitly, you’ll want to avoid. Good to know right?

Easy Vegan Cake Mix Cookies

So, what’s your ideal cookie idea?  For a holiday like Valentine’s Day, go for strawberry, red velvet, cherry chip or chocolate and make it happen with your favorite add-ins! For Birthdays, add in a cup of sprinkles and watch for big smiles!  For holidays coordinate your cake mix with the holiday colors and add coordinating sprinkles on top with yummy, creamy frosting.

The possibilities are endless and delicious!
