Tips for Throwing a Cookie Exchange

Celebrate with friends (and lighten your holiday workload—bonus!) by inviting everyone over for a sweet swap. Here’s your to-do list:   

Assign each guest a recipe
Two to three weeks in advance so they have plenty of time to prepare. Need ideas? Some of our swap-worthy favourites include Lindt Mint Chocolate Shortbread TreesLINDOR Candy Cane Cookies and LINDOR Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups   

Prep your swap space
On the day of, cover a large table or island with serving trays or brown paper for everyone to lay out their goodies. Create labels for each, or write the name of each person and cookie directly on the brown paper, and assemble parchment paper and boxes or tins to help divvy up everyone’s take-home treats.   

Plan your menu
Set up a coffee and tea station complete with chocolate-dipped spoons, and other treats for easy refreshments. Or create a wine and chocolate pairing station, with snacks that go well with both.
