Vegan - Double Choc Candy Cane Cookies

After a day of dashing through the snow, enjoy a delicious festive cookie! We are dreaming of a white Christmas if you couldn't tell...

To make our spirits bright, we have jingled all the way to the kitchen to create this festive twist on our Choccy Chia Snack Ball Mix. Turning the mix into a double choc cookie, that Santa himself wouldn't mind finding on Christmas Eve! Half-dipped in white chocolate, because the more the merrier. And sprinkled with candy canes, because what is Christmas without candy canes! This can be a fun recipe to do with the little ones in the kitchen, and they taste sooooooo yummy.
