Kosher Cookie Swap!

With Chanukah only a few days way, here is a great fun idea to do during the holiday. Have a good ‘ole impromptu kosher cookie swap. Most people make up their own rules for cookie swaps, but here is a guideline you might like to follow:

If you are organizing the cookie swap, you will probably end up as the host for this event. Make sure that you have a table big enough to hold the plates of cookies that your guests will be bringing. Most of the guests may be planning on taking the cookies home, so you'll want to serve some refreshments. Something light to nosh on will do the trick.

Send out an evite ( or make calls to let people know when and where the cookie swap will take place. Tell everyone that they must make homemade cookies, let them know about how many cookies to make. You might also want to tell your guests to bring copies of the recipes for the cookies that they make. Along with the cookies, your guests can swap their recipes. Get some tins or plastic containers for the guests to put cookies to take home. You are on your way to having a delicious event

If you can't get the cookie swap together by Chanukah, this is a great event during anytime of the year.

Peace, love, & kosher,
