Anyways, back to my recipe exchange! I decided to start off easy and do a cookie exchange! Everyone who came emailed me their cookie recipe and I printed everyone a little cookie recipe book to take home with them. I also bought little baggies for everyone to take some cookies home with them!
I served cocktail meatballs, grapes & cheese cubes, and apples with toffee dip! I also had a hot chocolate bar but just my luck it was 75 degrees that Saturday so only my nieces dug into the hot chocolate. Oh well :)
We snacked on the appetizers before digging into the cookies! I had a little card with everyone's cookie written on it in front of their platter so everyone knew what cookie it was and who made it. We tasted each one, then I had a voting station where everyone voted on their favorite one! The winner got a little surprise after I counted the votes!!
It was such a fun way to get together with the girls in my life and walk away with lots of new cookie recipes!!! I am looking forward to hosting another one next year - Shay has done an appetizer version, casserole version, & breakfast version! I think it's such a great idea!
Here are some pictures I snapped of that day. I wish I would have taken more!!
It was such a fun day, I can't wait to do it again next year!
I hope everyone has a great Christmas!!!
