Make Jif® Peanut Butter a Part of Your Holiday Tradition!

12/7/2010

Start a sweet tradition with your family and friends! Host an annual Cookie Exchange for an evening of fun, friendship and cookies! Here's how:

  1. Create a guest list and send out invitations well in advance—your guests will want to have time to bake their cookies!
  2. Ask each guest to bring their favorite holiday cookies, plus a container to take home the cookies they swap.
  3. Keep the math simple. The number of cookies each guest brings is the number they take home. Let each guest know how many cookies to bring.
  4. Serve a simple meal of soup or chili before the swap begins.
  5. Keep in mind that the array of cookies will be inviting! Ask each guest to bring an additional dozen and create a "tasting tray" to nibble during the swap.
  6. For a memorable keepsake, gather all of the recipes in advance and create "cookie cookbooks" for your friends and family.
