New Year’s Resolution Cookies

Use this tutorial to make fun and easy New year’s resolution cookies with store bought cookies and fondant. Fun to make with kids at New year’s eve parties!

The New year will be here soon and this time, I made New year’s resolution cookies.

Instead of writing my resolutions on paper, I wrote them on cookies.

I am sure there are some resolutions here that I will give up on New Year’s Day itself! lol

I suck at fulfilling them but I sure love writing them every year.

I wrote them on peanut butter filled cookies.

This way, I can eat the cookies as I complete each goal.

Pretty neat…eh?!

I could have baked a fresh batch of sugar cookies but the store-bought cookies have a longer shelf life.

And some of these resolutions may take a bit longer to complete…hehe.

These are so easy to make and FUN too, especially with children.

I think it would be a fun activity at a New year’s eve party perhaps…

To make these New year’s resolution cookies, you will need the following ingredients and supplies:

Cream filled cookies
Marshmallow fondant (in various colors)
Circle cutter (same size as the cookie)
Corn syrup
Black edible marker

Here are the steps:

Step 1:
Use a round cookie cutter (about the same size as your peanut butter cookies) to cut out circles of fondant in various colors.

Step 2:
Brush some corn syrup on top of the cookies and stick the fondant circles.

Step 3:
Let the fondant-covered cookies sit for about 2 hours at room temperature, uncovered and away from splashes of water. This will harden the fondant slightly and make it easier to write on them. Then, use black edible marker to write your resolutions.

Put your cookies in a cookie jar.

Wrap a ribbon around it with a cute tag that says: “This year, I will…” 

And you are done making these cute and crafty New year’s resolution cookies!

All that’s left to do is munch on them as you tackle each resolution.

    wow, it looks great and maybe it’s a better way for me to remember about my NY resolutions. Usually I write them down and loose a notebook 😉 Happy New Year!

    What a cool idea! You are so creative. And I love your resolutions. While "get organized" should top my list, I think taking a trip or risks sounds much more fun. 🙂
