Today the internet will gain over 500 cookie recipes. Which basically makes this the best Monday ever.
This massive influx of butter, sugar and flour is brought to you by none other than the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.
The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap is an annual event hosted by the amazingly hard working duo, Lindsay and Julie. Essentially a bunch of us food bloggers send cookies to one another, then we all blog about our recipes on the same day. It’s a fun way to spread a little Holiday cheer and to connect with fellow bloggers all across the globe. But probably my favorite aspect of this event is knowing that the money we raise during the cookie swap goes to a national non-profit called Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. I’ll trade cookies any day of the week if it means helping kids fight the good fight against childhood cancers.
This year I made Chocolate-Dipped Nutella Cookies for the swap. Everyone loves chocolate and Nutella, so I figured they would be a big hit. And these cookies taste as good on day 8 (eight!) as they do on day 1 (thanks Dad for being my official taste tester!), making them ideal candidates for cross country shipping.
I sent these Chocolate-Dipped Nutella Cookies to Kathi at the Laughing Spatula, Erica at Sun and Good Eats and Becky at So Very Blessed. And I received cookies from Sue at It’s Okay to Eat the Cupcake, Sarah at Fantastical Sharing and Shelby at Grumpy’s Honeybunch.
Be sure to check out the other awesome bloggers that participated in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. Santa (and his belly) with thank you. Lindsay and Julie will have links to all the recipes in a round-up post later on in the week.
