Have you always wanted to plan a cookie exchange? The holidays are a perfect time to plan a cookie exchange with your friends and family. Start planning one now, so that you can enjoy lots of yummy cookies in just a few short weeks. Here’s how to plan the ultimate cookie exchange!
Write Down a List of People to Invite
You can’t have the ultimate cookie exchange without inviting a bunch of fun guests. Think of people who would love to share their recipes and join in on trying new cookie recipes. Invite old and young people alike!
Send Out the Invitations
Now that you have a list of people you want to invite to the cookie exchange, send out the invitations. Include the date, time, place, and a number so they can RSVP for your party.
Ask Your Guests to Choose Their Cookies to Bake
The fun part of a cookie exchange is that you are getting cookies from all walks of life. Ask your guests to choose cookies to bake and to bring with them to the cookie exchange. You can choose to go with a theme, or you can let everyone pick their own. Along with asking your guests to choose which cookies they will bake, send them recipe cards in advance, so that they may hand them out to the other guests.
Place the Display Cards by Each Cookie Set
You’ll want your guests to know who baked which cookies. Place display cards by each cookie set, so that people can know what type of cookie it is and who made it.
Take a Vote
After all is said and done and everyone has tried each and every cookie, it’s time to vote on the best cookies! Of course, this is optional, but it’s also a fun way to spice up the cookie exchange. Take a vote on-
- The Most Creative
- The Best Tasting
- The Most Festive
- The Most Original
- The Best All Around
