It’s that time of the year again for college finals and I’ve a;ways sent my girls small care packages throughout their college careers and bigger ones when it was time for their final exams. I only have one in college now as the other graduated and is in the “real” world doing what she loves – working as an RN. The one in college has two more years so she will benefit from these care packages a bit longer. I try to put all the snacks she loves in there that she won’t buy because it’s not in “her” budget. Yea…I laughed too. “Her” budget is my money but I do appreciate her thriftiness. I also try to buy a few things throughout the year that may fit in with her apartment decor or those little things she tells me she wants but doesn’t buy for herself. The food is a mix between healthy snacks and the favorite junk food craves.
I always, always include homemade cookies in the package. It’s a must, a necessity and a requirement. She loves cheesecake and white chocolate chip cookies so I thought why not combine the two and make it a bit festive. The Funfetti cake mixes are an easy way to get that festive look and by making a few changes you can turn the cake mix into a cookie dough mix. The recipe makes the perfect amount to box up and mail too. I usually can get a little over 2 dozen cookies from it. Easy! Time-saving! She’s going to love them.
1 small box instant cheesecake pudding mix
1 tsp vanilla extract (not imitation)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 – 1 cup white chocolate chips
