Leaving a glass and a plate out for Santa on the night before Christmas is so 2019. This year, leave him a note to grab his treat out of the freezer.

If it's what Santa Claus loves, then I love it, too. When the big man hits the skies for soft delivery to all the good girls and boys, make your house his new favorite spot on his global trip.

You could do the trusted Santa snack and leave out a few cookies and a nice tall glass of milk. Why do that, when you can do something that will blow his mind. In the tiny little village of Rockton, Illinois, an ice cream maker has taken what we all know pleases Santa, and gone one step beyond.

From the Dairyhaus comes, Santa's Milk & Cookies. Chocolate chip cookie infused ice cream with hand-stirred chocolate chips and crushed chocolate chip cookies.

Get your house fully prepared for Santa's arrival by picking up a quart (or two) of Santa's Milk & Cookies, at:

  • Schnuck's in Roscoe and Loves Park
  • Woodman's in Rockford and Beloit
  • Main Street Meats, Roscoe
  • Sugar Britches, Rockton
  • Van Laars, Edgebrook Plaza

or, curbside at dairyhausrockton.com, Thursday - Sunday from 3:30 - 8:00 p.m..
