Cookie Swap Party
Does the idea of making 17 different flavors of holiday cookies get you down? Fret no more. Invite your friends over for a cookie swapping party! Each person should bring one dozen cookies per guest. So, if you are inviting 10 people, each participant should bring 120 cookies (roughly two to three batches). At the end of the party, each guest walks away with a whole variety of goodies! Here are some ways to make your cookie swap special.
- Instead of zipper bags, make sure to have fun containers for people to transport their cookies home in. Holiday-themed disposable containers or cellophane bags will work.
- Have appetizers ready! With all the sugary treats, make sure guests have something savory to munch on while they mingle.
- Have festive music playing in the background.
- Ask your guests to bring copies of their cookie recipes so everyone can recreate them at home.
