Oh how we love this Italian Rainbow Cookie recipe! And can we all just admire how beautiful and charming Italian Rainbow Cookies are?! I absolutely love the striped color combo (perfect for Christmas!) and the smooth, bittersweet chocolate topping. They are also insanely delicious!! The ingredients in these classic Italian treats are interesting… almond paste, apricot jam and chocolate, but they compliment each other so well and the almond taste is very subtle, which I like. They’re almost more spongy like a cake, but you cut them into tiny rectangles and the chocolate holds it all together. You can also decide how green and red you want them to be. We went with lighter, more pastel colors, but you can make them very bright and vibrant if you prefer! Here’s the caveat with these guys, I’ll be honest, they’re a bit of a pain to make (a lot of steps and leaving overnight), and you need some supplies that you can buy at your local grocery store, but I think they’re so worth making around the holidays. Italian Rainbow Cookies taste like a lot of love went into them and if you’re hosting or attending any cookie exchange party, these cookies would be perfect to bring! They’re gorgeous and taste incredible! If you’re feeling extra merry, you can also make these little Santas!
