Edibles Swappers International Group Swap

US Only Swap

This time of year usually brings out the memories and the aprons, as we make some of our favorite holiday recipes for our families and friends.

I thought it would be great to taste how some of YOU celebrate your holiday season! So, don your aprons and let us bake!!!

For this swap: Each member will have one partner and will send a batch of their favorite HOMEMADE holiday treats to that partner.

Please keep this as simple as possible
Like simply double a recipe that you make every year as a tradition...
Package up half of it (or a single batch) sufficiently to make the post without arriving as a package of crumbs -- I hear that popped popcorn (no butter or salt) is good packing for cookies and such.
Send your yummy package on it's way to make your partner's holiday a bit like yours.

Remember that we want this to be a HOLIDAY swap, so the turn-around on this will be rather quick. Invite your friends and sign up today!!!

The not so good stuff... Due to the cost of international shipping and random custom issues, this is going to be a US ONLY swap. My deepest apologies to our lovely overseas swappers. If anyone would like to host an overseas "local" swap, please feel free to use the idea! =)

Just to open discussion - I would like to try something that I may not normally make, so I thought I would see what you other dear hearts might be planning to make...

I have some very favorites, including:
Chocolate drop cookies - my son's favorite (with oatmeal & peanut butter)
Oreo truffles
Peanut butter cups (like Reese's)
Peanut butter fudge

I have not DECIDED which one to make yet, so my partner can have a voice if you like! =)

Feel free to share your recipes if you like.

Oh, how would you feel about including your recipe in with the goodies sent?

I say, if they like the cookies they'll ask for the recipe anyway! I plan to make:

Mexican wedding cakes


Frosted sugar cookies with silver balls :D

I'll send a bit of each recipe so it'll be an assortment. That OK?
