I don’t know about you, but I can’t help but be obsessed with those white and pink frosted circus animal cookies. These are very nostalgic for me, so whenever I get my hands on some, you know I am over in the corner hoarding them to myself. Maybe it’s the sprinkle, I dunno.

The first time I brought a bag home to make a recipe, my fiance also confessed his undying love for these magical cookies, and I knew it was meant to be. In fact, I recall him telling me that I needed to get them out of the house or they might magically disappear. Magic I tell you.

After making several recipes with these cookies, I decided that I should probably share my obsession with you, my friends.  Turns out there are some pretty stellar recipes out there created by my fellow blogging friends and I am so happy to share those with you as well. There’s over 15 recipes here all featuring your favorite pink frosted cookies. You’re welcome!

How fun is this Circus Animal Cookie Cake? This cake is layers of vanilla cake, vanilla frosting and Circus Animal Cookies with a pink chocolate ganache. There’s a lot of pink and definitely some sprinkles.
