There is a cookie recipe that circulates in Joe’s family. It’s his Grandma Mary’s chocolate chip cookie recipe which you’ve heard me talk about in my chocolate chip cookie bar and easy pumpkin chocolate chip cookie posts. This cookie recipe is my sold go-to base for most of my cookie recipes, with a few adjustments along the way.

White Chocolate Cookies

I love that white chocolate is kinda unexpected. We’re so used to seeing and tasting those small brown morsels that when we swap them out for the creamy vanilla-y flavor of white chocolate it’s a delightful surprise. Then, pair with the the DOUBLE white chocolate of these cookies and you’ve really given your tastebuds a whole new experience!

Best White Chocolate

To be honest, when it comes to the best white chocolate that you use for this recipe any chips will work. I’m a huge fan of Aldi’s chocolate chips because they’re super affordable and they don’t taste waxy like some other affordable store brands do. For the white chocolate pudding mix I say go full sugar, not the sugar free kind. Why? It’s a cookie. Live a little! Plus, I think the extra sugar is what makes these taste like crack, per my husband.

Candy Bar Cookies

Honestly, you could sub any of your fave white chocolate candy for these cookies. For instance, you could chop or break up a Hershey’s cookies n cream candy bar and sub that for the chocolate chips. A little cookies n cream spin on the cookie? Delish!
