It is certainly no surprise that Santa enjoys cookies. He gets them left for him at nearly every home on Christmas Eve and he somehow manages to finish all of them. The reason is because he spends all year enjoying them made especially for him by Mrs. Claus. She tries new recipes for him to critique and she also makes all his favorites very often. So, what are Santa's favorite cookies?
Gingerbread cookies are a classic that Mrs. Claus makes often for Santa Claus. He really enjoys this typical holiday treat with aromas of ginger, and cinnamon that creates a warm Christmas feeling all year round.
Snickerdoodle cookies are a special treat for Mr. Claus. He loves the cinnamon, and enjoys eating these cookies with his morning coffee. They are great to snack on anytime of day. Snickerdoodles have a fun name so talking about having them are part of the enjoyment as well.
Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake
These cookies are great not only because of the ingredients but also because they are ready very quickly. This chocolate peanut butter delight is made with oatmeal that cooks fast on the stove-top, then it is mixed with all other components. Once they are cooled, they are ready to eat right away. Total wait time is about fifteen minutes for these delicious sweet treats!
Sugar cookies can turn into an entire day of fun baking, decorating, and of course eating all your hard work! Santa loves to help Mrs. Claus make sugar cookies. He also calls on the elves to come choose their favorite cut-outs, their favorite frosting and sprinkles, before everyone enjoys the multi-colored cookies together.
Peanut Butter Cookies
Peanut butter cookies are a big favorite for Santa Claus. So much that you may wonder if they are his absolute favorite. They come pretty close, but they are not the winner. These cookies go great with milk. Santa loves to eat them plain or when Mrs. Claus tries out a new recipe calling for her to add chocolate kisses or peanut butter cups as well.
Oatmeal raisin cookies are certainly not everyone's top choice or anywhere near a favorite. But, for Santa Claus these cookies do make his list of favorites. They remind him of his mother and he likes to think they are somewhat healthy for him too.
As you can imagine the powdery sweet snowball cookies remind Santa Claus of playing in the snow, visiting children, and the occasional snow ball play fight. Santa Claus also really likes this cookie with his morning coffee.
Alright, we have been through the list of favorites. So, which cookie ranks number one to Santa Claus? Well, you may have already guessed it! It's the chocolate chip cookie. He could and would eat this cookie everyday if Mrs. Claus would agree. She makes chocolate chip cookies for Santa pretty regularly. He also is very pleased to report that most children choose to leave this cookie out for him during Christmas.
