Chinese New Year is almost upon us. That means fireworks, horses, those little finger traps that you always get stuck in, and fortune cookies. The Year of the Horse starts January 31, and I’m sure you all want to start it off right, so why not kick things off with some good fortunes?

My boys always look forward to breaking open the Fortune Cookie to read their good fortune. To make your own, all you need is 1 ingredient – that’s it – Pie Crust!

To make them extra special, I dipped the Fortune Cookies in melted chocolate and added sprinkles. Some of them also received a little sprinkle of cinnamon sugar mixture.

Let me show you just how easy these Fortune Cookies are to make at home…

Depending on how many times you are able to re-roll the pie crust, you should get at least 24 Fortune Cookies from 1 box of Pie Crust. Some of these have been sprinkled with a cinnamon sugar combination for a little extra flavor and color.

Now comes the fun part! Melt chocolate or white chocolate in the microwave, dip the edge of cooled Fortune Cookies and immediately add sprinkles.

You can also leave the Fortune Cookies plain. We thought they were a little dry without chocolate on them.
