Santa’s Trash Cookies 


1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened

1/2 c. granulated sugar

1/2 c. packed brown sugar

1 large egg

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. kosher salt

3/4 c. crushed potato chips

1/4 c. crushed pretzels

2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 c. red and green sprinkles


  • Preheat the oven to 350º and line two baking sheets with parchment. In a large bowl using a hand mixer, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. 
  • In another large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt until combined. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until just combined.
  • Gently fold in most of the potato chips, pretzels, chocolate chips, and sprinkles (reserve some for pressing on tops of cookies).
  • Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop balls of dough (about 2 tablespoons each) onto prepared baking sheets. Press down lightly on each cookie to flatten, then press remaining potato chips, pretzels, chocolate chips, and sprinkles on top.
  • Bake until the edges are just starting to get golden, 14 minutes. 
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely .
