Need a great school lunch cookie that can take on the rigors of a brown bag and still taste great?  Or cookies special enough for a gift, but perfect for a sweet treat with a cup of coffee after a long day? Check out these fudgy white chocolate chip cookies. They’re made from scratch, but they mix up just as fast as any boxed mix at the store. Want to make them even more special? Add nuts to add some protein and healthy fats. I suggest walnuts.

Fudgy White Chocolate Chip Cookies: Use Fresh Ingredients

Always use fresh ingredients, especially for leavening (baking soda and salt) for the best tasting cookies. And PLEASE, don’t use margarine or any other butter-like product. Real ingredients make the time you spend in the kitchen worth it!


Fudgy White Chocolate Chip Cookies: Use Real Chips

I recommend SunSpire White Chocolate Chips. They’re different from the supermarket varieties in that they are REAL white chocolate chips, not vanilla-flavored waxy chip-shaped candy. They’re made with whole milk powder, cocoa butter, nonfat dry milk, cane juice, and more, but they don’t contain trans fats. Plus they’re a naturally and socially responsible choice. They replace the white chocolate bark  in candy coatings for fruit, baked goods, and more. You’ll notice the difference in the creamy texture and tastes.
