Children have been leaving cookies and milk out for Santa Claus since the 1930s. While a napkin with a few Chips Ahoy is plenty enough to make the big man smile late at night, we think Santa deserves a little treat this year. The idea isn't to mess with tradition, but to create a new one by trying a different recipe or new project with your little ones. Here are some of our favorite ways to elevate this Christmas institution:
Step 1: A cute plate.
→ Hand Painted Cookie Plate
→ Christmas Tree Plate
→ I Promise I've Been Good Plate
→ Santa Script Plate
→ Temporary Tattoo Plate (Cover it with parchment or a food-safe clear gloss.)
→ Stick-On Vinyl Letter Plate
Step 2: A great recipe.
→ Chocolate Chip and Toffee Shortbread Cookies
→ Holiday Snowballs
→ Savory Oatmeal Cookies
→ Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies
→ Crunchy Frostbite Cookies
→ Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies
→ Hot Cocoa Cookies
