Tips for Making Ugly Christmas Sweater Sugar Cookie Bars

  • To pipe the frosting you will need piping bags and cake decorating tips. In some recipes you can get away with substituting zip top bags for piping bags but I would not recommend that for this frosting since it is thick. Piping bags are thicker than zip top bags and will not break when you apply pressure to squeeze out the frosting.
  • Have fun piping a sweater design…or just spread the frosting. I spread frosting with a small offset spatula.

  • These icing decorations are so festive and easy! They come in many designs.
  • For the reindeer I took a little inspiration from my Reindeer Pretzel recipe because they are adorable and I just love that sweet and salty combination.
  • If you’re going to cut mini pretzels do it fast to avoid breaking. You may be tempted to slowly try to slice the pretzels but a swift cut straight down does the trick. Be sure to keep your fingers out of the way!
