Costco's New DIY Kit Makes Decorating Christmas Cookies A Snap

The season for cookie-making is upon us, and it's time to start thinking about what kinds of cookies you want to make. While it doesn't get much better than homemade cookies, sometimes you need something that's just easy and fun for the kids to do or to enjoy with friends. That's why Costco's new cookie-decorating kit is just the thing when you need a fun and festive activity that's sure to please a crowd. 

The kits were first spotted by the Instagram user The Costco Connoisseur on Sunday, November 8. Each kit is just $8.99, making it quite a steal considering all each package includes. Though some people in the comments said they haven't been able to find the kits and that the kits aren't on the Costco website just yet, they are apparently available in select locations. So even if you don't spot them now, keep your eyes open and hope they come to your local store soon. With so many of the commenters excited for the kits, it would be a shame to miss them.

Here's what the cookie kits include

The best part of making cookies, apart from eating some of the dough, of course, is decorating them. This 'Twas the Night Before Christmas Decorate Your Own Cookie Kit by Create-A-Treat helps you skip to the best part by providing you with 24 Christmas cookies that have already been baked. The cookies come in shapes like Santa, stockings, reindeer, wreaths, sleighs, snowmen, and a lot more. So, you'll have plenty to decorate and won't have to dirty one dish in the kitchen to make the cookies yourself.

The kit also includes three pouches of pre-made icing in festive colors like red, green, and white. There's also a smaller tube of pre-made black icing you can use to write with, pipe, or make smaller details with. Finally, top of your cookie creations with multicolored candy beads and a Christmas Quins mix of sprinkles.

The best part of all might be that this kit is made in a peanut and tree-free facility, so it's safe for people with nut allergies. Stop by your local Costco to pick up one of these kits to get in the holiday spirit or to have on hand to celebrate the night before Christmas.
