Talented baker and blogger Bakerella created these super cute squirrel sugar cookie designs that showcase the lovable little animals playing around in a field of snow. These sweet treats are perfect to cook up for the winter and serve to guests.

The sugar cookie recipe begins with swapping out traditional flour for a cup of unsweetened cocoa so that the cookies have a chocolate flavoring and a brown coloring. Once the dough is cut into several squirrel silhouettes, either using a cookie cutter or a print out from the Internet, you can bake them up and decorate them to your liking. Bakerella even cuts some of the chocolate sugar cookie dough into rounds with a slit to create a base for the squirrel cookie to stand up in.
