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.
