Olympic Rings Cookies

Olympic Rings Cookies are a fun snack to munch on while you watch the Olympics!

Olympic Rings Cookies

In case, you didn’t know the Sochi Winter Olympic start this week. We are big Olympic fans around here.  I love watching all the events and so do my kids. I also love cookies.  So today I’m combining the two!!

When thinking about the Olympics, my mind went instantly to the Olympic rings and I thought it would be fun to make Olympic rings cookies.

I used cake mix cookies (recipe below) for these because of the ease of mixing them and cut out sugar cookies and I don’t normally get along. But I’m sure you could use a sugar cookie dough for these too.  I used a white cake mix and a chocolate cake mix.

Olympic Rings Cookies:

Mix up your cookie dough.  Divide the white cookie dough in half, set half aside and divide the other half into four section.  Add a few drops of food coloring (red, green, yellow, and blue) to each of the sections.

Pinch off a little white cookie dough and roll in between your hand.  Take the long rope and form into a circle.  Take a little of one of the coloring and do the same thing, placing it inside of the white.  Pinch of small piece of white and fill in the center.


Use the chocolate mix for your black rings.  After I had made several rings of every color, I made some regular cookies in every color.  Of course, there was lots of chocolate cookie mix left over, so we made lots of those.  Not that we minded!

Bake according to cake mix cookie recipe.

After I was all done baking, I had the thought that you could also make the cookie rings without the white cookie around it.  But we already had so many cookies, I didn’t test it out.

Tip: If you press your ropes together a little when you assemble your cookie and make sure to bake them all the way, they are less likely to fall apart.

Yield: 36 cookies
