The other day I was reminiscing about a cookie party I went to many years ago. It was a really fun get together and it sparked the idea for today’s post.
I thought I’d share some of the details on how to have a successful cookie swap party.
Ask guests to bring a dozen cookies each per each six guests ( 2 cookies for each guest). Then you’ll have more than enough to serve at the party and plenty for your guests to take some home too. Ask your guests to tell you what cookie they plan to bring so you won’t have duplicates.
Ask your guests if they have any allergies and be sure to keep those cookies set aside or marked with a pretty note card (contains nuts, etc).
Cookies don’t have to be holiday themed either; you can encourage your guests to bring their favorites, chocolate chip,oatmeal, etc.
You can make this a fun “girls night out” too. Try serving your cookies with wine and cheese or some other hors devours. Men may be interested in a cookie swap too, you could make it a couples get together.
Ask everyone to bring a copy of their cookie recipes and after the party you can assemble them all into a nice recipe newsletter or you could even create an online cookbook or, some other keepsake recipe book.
Have you ever had or been to a cookie swap party?
