Who doesn’t love a classic chocolate chip cookie? As a chocolate fanatic, I love to make chocolate chip cookies with my kids as a special treat. But one day, I wanted to create something a little different – these Strawberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies were born!

My kids love when I sneak one of these cookies into their lunch boxes on special occasions. Since you’re using white chocolate chips, they won’t stain their clothes! Now that’s a win for me.

The natural sweetness of the strawberries really makes this cookie unique, and you get a little dose of nutrition! So, that means I can have five, right? ;) Strawberry and chocolate is a match made in heaven if you ask me. You’ll love this combo!

These white chocolate chip cookies are perfect for weekend baking with the kids. Get them to mix the ingredients in the bowl and form the cookie dough balls! I love when my kids help me out in the kitchen because it’s our special time together. Plus, we all get cookies after so everyone is happy!

Rocky Road Cookies

Need a delicious cookie recipe that your kiddos will love? This cookie is perfect year round!

There is nothing better than a good cookie recipe. It doesn’t take a lot to make a warm, delightful dessert that can please everyone in the household. Whether it’s a holiday event or just any old Friday night, these are perfect!

Okay, so maybe this recipe isn’t as simple as pulling out frozen cookie dough and sticking it in the oven because you’ll have to melt some of the chocolate first. The effort is worth it, trust me.

Have someone a little nutty in your family? These rocky road cookies are even better with a few walnuts added on top or even mixed in with the batter!

These are also a perfect treat to add to your kid’s lunch box! Nothing can make them feel more special at school than a little homemade treat from home! Check out our recipe index for tons of ideas, and we can also send you a weekly meal plan straight to your inbox with everything you need to make perfect lunches for your kids!

Cookie making is a great opportunity to get your kids in the kitchen! Get them mixing in the chocolate chips and putting spoonfuls of batter on the cookie sheets. Another great idea is to have one-on-one time with each of your children. Every weekend, you can rotate whose turn it is to cook with mom or dad and not allow anyone else in the kitchen! This makes each child feel very special and gives you an opportunity to get them talking about things they might not normally talk about!
