Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Or so I've heard.
Of course since Santa is coming tonight and we are some of his last deliveries, my son figured Santa needed lots of extra energy to keep him going for the last bit of his journey. 
We have been watching his progress all day long thanks to the Norad Santa Cam.
The cookies we are leaving for Santa are an old favorite from when I was a kid, and the recipe over the years has been modified, much so that my son was able to make these almost independently:
Chocolate Fudge Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Here is how to make them:
Cream together: 1/2 cup non hydrogenated margarine and 1 8oz block of cream cheese
Add: 1 egg and 1 tsp vanilla
Pick: 1 box of cake mix (I chose Chocolate Fudge for these) and add to creamed ingredients.
Add: 1 cup chocolate chips or whatever you want to the cookies (raisins, coconut, nuts..... the list is endless).
Bake at 350F for 10 minutes.  Let set in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Merry Christmas everyone, and
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
