Third Annual Cookie Exchange

Caroline and I attended Mel’s 3rd Annual Christmas Cookie Exchange on Sunday. This is always one of my favorite holiday parties of the season and this year’s did not disappoint! There were 14 girls in attendance and each brought 4 dozen cookies – totaling 672 cookies! We all took home a bucket of cookies, lots of new recipes and sugar comas…

I snapped this picture as the cookies started rolling into the party. So much goodness on one table!

 Lots and lots and lots of yummy desserts! To ensure there weren’t any duplicate recipes guests were required to list what cookie they were bringing on the evite when they RSVP’d. This year I went an easier route and baked red velvet marbled brownies {recipe}!

Mel provided cute prizes for the winners of the best decorated cookie, favorite dessert and best recipe card. Each year this contest gets more and more competitive!


The “best cookie” award went to McKinsey for her Special K Bar Cookies {recipe}. A close second was Laura’s Mystery Brickle Bars {recipe}. But another favorite worth mentioning was Mel’s Smores Cookie Cups {recipe}.

Ho Ho Punch {recipe here} – always a hit and never a drop left!

A plate full of cookies for the tasting!

And a few snaps of the munchkin with some of her favorite friends…
