The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap {Wrap-Up}

Yesterday, I shared my cookie recipe that I sent out to others; Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. Once again a big thank you to  Julie from The Little Kitchen and Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil who organized this amazing event. Did you know that over 620 food bloggers from around the world signed up and swapped cookies? That’s over 22,000 cookies sent in the past few weeks from food bloggers near and far! *Statistics provided by Julie from The Little Kitchen and Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil  
OK, so now on to the wrap up. Today, I’m sharing what cookies I received!
Home Sweet Hopkins made Tuxedo Brownie Hug Cookies
This was the first batch of cookies I received (a week before my other cookies). This is the best of both worlds. Part brownie part cookie! It gives a nice balance of both milk chocolate and white chocolate. I did have a few casualties from this box (aka cookies that crumbled and didn’t make it in one piece); however, I liked the cookie crumbs just as much as I liked the whole cookie!

 

Think Tran made (the most amazing) Rocky Road Cookies
The next two sets of cookies I received on the same day! I was on sugar overload.

OMG–run to Tran’s blog now and get this recipe. These cookies are unbelievably soft and chewy and taste like they came from a bakery! AMAZING. I’m not a big fan of rocky road ice cream but I sure am of the cookie version.

Tran also sent two Hot Chocolate on a Stick (with homemade peppermint marshmallows)! I can’t wait to try these little delectable treats!
Big Bears Wife made White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Crasin Cookies
I’ve made these cookies before and they are probably one of my favorite to make. These are also one of my husbands favorite cookies since they contain only white chocolate (he’s not a big chocolate fan). I love everything about these cookies. The craisins, macadamia nuts, and the white chocolate. If you’ve never had one of these cookies or made a batch of these cookies you must go over to Big Bears Wife and give this recipe a whirl!
I can sadly report that all of my cookies have been eaten, and are now just a distant memory from pictures I share today. If you would like to participate in next year’s cookie swap or to stay informed please visit: http://eepurl.com/hsS-Y 
Yes, that’s right. They are already starting to think about next years cookie swap!
