Celebrating National Cookie Exchange Day with Friends & Family!

Who doesn’t love cookies? National Cookie Exchange Day is a great excuse to make your favorite cookie recipe and share it with friends, family, and coworkers. Whether you’re hosting an exchange at home or the office, here are some tips to make this December 22nd extra special!

Decide on Your Guest List

First things first: decide who you want to invite. If you’re hosting an exchange at home, consider inviting your closest friends and family over for coffee and cookies. You can also invite your neighbors if you want to get festive with them too! For those hosting an office exchange, a good way to ensure that everyone feels included is by sending out a holiday email or a group chat.

Choose Your Theme & Decorate Accordingly

Once you’ve decided on the guest list, pick out a theme for the event. This could be anything from winter wonderland to retro chic – it all depends on your style! Make sure to decorate accordingly so that everyone can feel the holiday spirit while they nibble on their cookies. Don’t forget festive music too; nothing sets the mood like a playlist of holiday classics such as “White Christmas” and “Joy To The World”.

What Kind of Cookies Should I Make?

Now comes the fun part: deciding what kind of cookies to make! The most popular type of cookie for exchanges are usually simple recipes that don’t require a lot of ingredients or time to prepare. Chocolate chip cookies are always a safe bet since most people love them – or why not try something different like spiced gingerbread cookies instead? Another way to make sure everyone gets something they like is by encouraging guests to bring their own homemade creations as well.
No matter how you choose to celebrate National Cookie Exchange Day, just remember that it’s about spending quality time with friends & family during this special season. So go ahead and whip up some delicious treats – because who can resist a plate full of freshly made cookies!? Have fun and happy baking!
