Baking Christmas cookies can be a lot of work especially if you want to have a big variety of cookies for Christmas. A cookie exchanging party can help you get some different cookies without baking a lot of different kinds.
Decide how many people will come to your cookie exchange party and then tell everyone to bring a dozen cookies for each person that is coming. For example if you have eight people coming to the cookie exchange then tell everyone to bring eight dozen of the same cookies to your party.
If you like you can have everyone tell what type of cookie they are bringing that way you won’t have too many of the same kinds of cookies. You want a variety of cookies so it is important that everyone brings a different cookie.
Once everyone is at the party you can give each person a container, which they can take home with them, to put cookies in. The container can be a basket, tin or box. Place all the cookies on a counter or table and put a label in front of the cookies that says what ingredients are in the cookies.
Then everyone can go around putting cookies into their container. You can each have a dozen of each cookie. Make sure to have a container that is big enough to fit all the cookies in that your guests will take home.
You can have a theme for your party like kid friendly cookies. Kid friendly cookies would be cookies that are rice krispie, m&m or decorated. You could have a nut themed cookie party where all the cookies have nuts in them. Or a non-nut cookie party where all the cookies are nut less. You could have a homemade cookie party or a store bought cookie party if you want a theme. You can pick a cookie shape for a theme like snowmen, reindeer or bells and have all the cookies be the shape that you pick.
You can decorate your home for the party and serve tea, coffee or milk with the cookies and after everyone has picked out their cookies they can taste test a few of the cookies they took for themselves.
A Christmas cookie party can be fun but don’t let it get out of hand. Don’t stress out and just have fun. You can just tell everyone to bring cookies for as many people as you are having at your party and just relax and have fun or you can plan the party complete and wish for the best.
