How to Host a Cookie Exchange Party

In my opinion, a Cookie Exchange Party is one of the most efficient parties you can host. You show up with a dozen of one kind of cookie and leave with a dozen different kinds of cookies and recipes on how to make them! Win/Win. No to mention, it’s another excuse to see your favorite people.

Organize a group of your friends and ask each guest to bring a dozen goodies for each guest, plus a few for the party sampling. Guests should also bring a copy of the recipe card for their baked item for each person.

You can help me out by submitting your best online DIY ideas and tutorials, if you’d like to. There’s NO login, NO e-mailing, and NO waiting! The best thing about these new sites is that your submissions will be featured and promoted within a day to a week! It’s faster, more efficient, and a lot of fun.

  1. Have you been peeking at my gift making list for this holiday season?!! Several of those exact cookies are on my list to make for friends this year! Great minds… 😉

    I don’t say it enough, but I love, love, LOVE your site and your boundless energy, Laurie. Great post!

  2. Cookie Exchanges are so much fun! The chocolate crinkle cookies are a HUGE fave at my house! Yummy and sooo easy to make! I’d love to try the dressed-up Oreos. Any suggestions on where to get transfers for them?

    Thanks for the fun post! 🙂

  3. I love doing my book club’s cookie exchange! There are seven of us and we each make each person a dozen of our cookies to take home so I go in with 7 dozen of one kind and come home with 7 dozen of a variety of kinds. Then I can mix and match them and make great gifts for my neighbors and the hub’s co-workers! It’s awesome.

    Actually we make 8 dozen each and then take the extra 7 dozen cookies to a nursing home for the residents. It makes the exchange extra special! Thanks for the great recipe ideas!!
