Hanukkah Cookie Exchange!

A fun way to celebrate the holiday with other families without exchanging gifts is to host a Cookie Exchange.  We invited 5 other families to join us for Hot Chocolate and the exchange this year.  Each family will bake 6 dozen cookies and package them in muffin cups of two.  I sent recipe cards for each family to fill out and bring.
(Download available HERE) and created a little Recipe Card holder for them to take the recipes home with them...it was really easy and used just half a sheet of paper, two button stickers, a border sticker and twine for each folder.
The inside...

Each family has a little place card for their cookies made from part of the second half of the sheet of paper...

                                 and I made little awards for us to vote, from the rest of the sheet of paper:

And the place cards become little treat bag toppers...
So, with 6 pieces of paper and a few embellishments I created a fun set of personalized Hanukkah Cookie Party goodies...hope I've inspired you to do the same!!!  Chag Sameach!!


  1. OMG!!! I love,love,love this! So perfect for a fun afternoon. I adore the little awards-just "the icing on the cake"!

  2. Very cute and fun idea for a party! Yummy cookies too.
