How to Host a Cookie Swap Party for Christmas

Having a cookie swap party for Christmas can be a lot of fun and with the proper planning it’s not all that difficult to put together. With just a little work and prep time, you can get family and your friends together for an enjoyable time that will leave you all with enough baked treats to enjoy all season long! Here’s a step-by-step guide to throwing a Christmas cookie swap:

1. Organize the Guest List

Select a group of 10-30 friends you believe would be interested in sharing the workload (and baked goods!) with you. In the invitation, ask family or each guest to send you the recipe beforehand, and to bring 3-6 dozen of their favorite holiday cookies.

2. Establish the Date and Time

Pick a date that works best for you as well as your guests’ work and travel programs. A cookie swap party can be any time of day, but the best swaps are held on weekends. Try to send invitations at least a couple of weeks ahead of schedule to allow individuals to plan accordingly. “I want you to bake three dozen cookies” is not the kind of thing you should spring on anyone at last minute!

3. Supply the Drinks and (non-cookie) Snacks for the Swap

Sure, there will be lots of cookies, but also prepare dips, cheese and meat platters and other finger foods to enjoy during the party. Make sure to serve cookie appropriate drinks as well such as coffee, tea and hot chocolate. And of course, ice cold milk!

4. Plan for the Kids if You’re Inviting Any

If you have kids coming, be sure to have activities for them to do such as a cookie decorating station. Also have coloring books and crafts on hand to keep them occupied while the adults hang out.

A great cookie swap is just that easy! May you and your friends and/or family have a wonderful time! Be sure to save a few yummy recipes for us and share them with us on our facebook page!
