Last year I went to my first ever Christmas cookie exchange and it was so, so fun! In case you have never been to one, you make enough of a cookie or candy so that everyone gets one of everything (plus the recipe). You swap sweets, snack on holiday goodies and leave with enough sugar to give you heart palpitations for days. Good times. And totally worth the sugar overload.
I loved trying everyone’s homemade creations and am so looking forward to doing the exchange again this year. I’ve already started researching recipes and found so many that I want to try. If you have a cookie exchange you’re going to, take a second and browse these scrumptious cookie and bar recipes!
