It’s no secret that Santa adores his Christmas Eve cookies. Especially chocolate chip ones. So this year, we thought we’d use our white chocolate chips to mix things up a bit for him. Why? Because they’re the perfect match for his jolly white beard! This easy recipe is ideal for bakers of all ages and fun for families to make together. The dough freezes perfectly, so you can prepare it ahead of time for Christmas Eve. Our recipe suggests baking half now and freezing half for the big night. We’re sure Santa will love them SO much, he won’t even leave a crumb! This recipe is brought to you by the gorgeous Lil’s and Jolene at One Yummy Mummy. Enjoy!
