Cookie exchanges

So I have one tonight which I made oreo truffles for (amazing!) and I have another two weeks from today and another one three days after that. So I don't want to make the same thing over and over. Anyone have any unique cookie recipes they are willing to share? It's difficult because I don't want to bring something everyone else is bringing. Tonight's exchange we had a posted listed but for the next two we won't. I love florida cracker candy (my go to but apparently its more popular than I thought and other are bringing it. Thanks for the sharing and here's to hoping I don't gain 15lbs just in Dec alone, lol.

Re: Cookie exchanges

  • Not sure the name but my family makes these no bake cookies every year and they are a hit.
    One bag of butterscotch chips
    One cup of peanut butter
    Melt slowly in a microwave bowl. Once completely melted add corn flakes. Enough to be completely covered by mixture. Spoon an drop small amounts on wax paper and put in fridge to harden up. Yum!

  • My family just calls those Cornflake cookies.. we're so original LOL  They are my favorite and I'm so looking forward to them.  I'm going to be writing down all the suggestions as they come in because I've got cookie parties coming up too.

  • These aren't really cookies, but you could make Muddy Buddies (also known as puppy chow). Recipes can be found easily using google. Another one of my favorites is buckeyes...they're these chocolate covered peanut butter ball things. So good!

    Candy Cane Snowmen
    30 Big Marshmallows
    10 Candy Canes
    10 Hershey Kisses (unwrapped)
    Pull and Peel Twizzlers (10 strands)
    30 red mini M&Ms
    10 Reese?s Pieces Minis
    White Icing (to act as glue)
    Black Gel Icing
    Clean Screwdriver (believe me, it works!)

    1. Break the top part off the candy canes so that you are left with a straight stick. Take 3 marshmallows and stick the candy cane through each to stack them on top of each other to make the snowman body. To prevent the candy cane from squishing the marshmallows, heat up a phillips screwdriver under hot water and poke a hole through each marshmallow first. Watch the tutorial to see why this works!
    2. Take one long rope of the Twizzlers and wrap between the middle and top marshmallow to create a scarf.
    3. Dab just a bit of icing on a Hershey Kiss and put on the top of the top marshmallow as a hat.
    4. Dab a tiny bit of icing on three red mini M&Ms and put them on the front of the marshmallows like buttons.
    5. Cut one Reese?s Pieces Mini (orange) in half and with a dab of icing attach it to the top marshmallow as a nose.
    6. Dab two eyes with the black gel icing.
    7. You are done! If you are super creative, use pretzel sticks as arms but I don?t think it needs it.
    Makes: 10 Snowmen

  • I hear you on the weight gain. I'm trying to keep it minimal this month.
    I have to do 16 dozen by Monday. I've been busy!
    These are my choices for this year:
    And then traditional shortbread. I changed it up by using coconut sugar. Really yummy!
