How to make Chocolate Spritz Cookies
To make these chocolate spritz cookies in the fun shapes, I used a cookie press. You can find them in so many places and they’re very inexpensive. It’s a must when making spritz cookies! I can’t wait to get more shapes and sets. They’re so fun and festive! HERE is the press that I used (I ALSO LINKED TO ALL TOOLS USED IN THE SHOP THIS POST SECTION BELOW, XO), but any small cookie press will work. I used the wreath, snowflake, and Christmas tree shapes for this spritz cookie recipe. Aren’t they so cute! I love the size…makes me feel like I can eat 20 at a time. Is that so wrong?
How long do Spritz Cookies stay fresh?
In general, spritz cookies will stay fresh at room temperature for about 3 days. Store them in an airtight container to keep them fresh. To make them last longer, you can freeze them.
How to Freeze Chocolate Spritz Cookies:
You can freeze the dough before baking, or even freeze the completed cookies. Here’s how:
To Freeze the Chocolate Spritz Cookie DOUGH:
- Follow the steps in the recipe card below for making the Chocolate Spritz Dough. Follow through the step for pressing the cookies through the press into shapes.
- Once the shapes are formed, place the cookies into a freezer safe ziplock bag and press as much air out as possible. Seal in the bag, and then place in ANOTHER bag to create a double layer of protection for freezing.
- Store the dough in the freezer for up to 6 months (AWESOME!).
- When ready to cook, you can cook from frozen, but add 2-3 minutes onto the cook time for the cookies.
To Freeze the COMPLETED Chocolate Spritz Cookies:
- Prepare the cookies fully according to instructions in the recipe card below.
- Allow cookies to fully cool after baking. Do not skip this step!
- Place the cookies in a rigid, air tight container for storing. Place the container into a freezer safe zip lock bag for extra protection.
- Freeze for up to 3 months.
- When ready to serve, allow to thaw AT ROOM TEMPERATURE for 2-3 hours before serving.
