Christmas Chocolate Chip – Christmas Pudding Cookies

 This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my privacy policy for more details

As Christmas is fast approaching I thought I would make a few extra video tutorials this December all themed around my festive baking. If anyone has ever seen my blog posts around this time of year they will know one of my favourite things to make for family and friends are my Christmas pudding, chocolate chip cookies. These are great, whether you are bringing out a whole plate, or packaging them up for family and friends as gifts. So for this reason I thought I would start off my Christmas tutorials with my Christmas cookies…

Please find below the video tutorial. I really hope you like it and enjoy making your own Christmas cookies. If you do please subscribe to my YouTube channel. Also I would love to hear what you think of my new video tutorials, so if you have any comments or questions please just let me know.

Keyword Chocolate Cookies, Christmas Pudding


  • 225 g Butter (8oz)
  • 140 g Caster Sugar (5oz)
  • 250 g Plain Flour (9oz)
  • 25 g Cocoa Powder (1oz)
  • 350 g Chocolate Chips (12oz)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 200 g Royal Icing Sugar to decorate
  • Red and green fondant to decorate


  • First add your room temperature butter into you mixing bowl, along with your caster sugar. Cream these together with a wooden spoon or electric hand whisk.
  • To this add your egg yolk and mix this through, before adding your vanilla extract and mixing that all together.
  • You can then sift in your flour and add your cocoa powder. Mix this up until it's completely combined and resembles cookie dough. You can then add in your chocolate chips. I find it easier to mix these into the dough using my hands (just make sure they are clean).
  • To get all my cookies the same size and a perfect circle for my Christmas puddings I use a 3 inch cookie cutter. Place some parchment paper onto a baking tray and measure out 80g of mixture and push it into your cookie cutter.
  • Place your cookies into a preheated oven at 190 degrees Celsius (375 degrees Fahrenheit / gas mark 5) for around 12 – 15 minutes.
  • Place your cookies onto a cooking rack to cool before we decorate them.
  • To decorate your cookies mix up some Royal Icing using Royal Icing sugar. Place this into a piping bag with a number 4 piping nozzle. You can then pipe around the top of the cookie, making drip marks across the top half of the cookie.
  • Whilst this is starting to set, take some green fondant and cut out some holly, using a cutter and make some red balls for the berries. Attach these to the top of your cookie, before leaving them to set completely.

Thank you for reading!
