It’s that time of year! No matter how much you try to avoid it, sweets are EVERYWHERE! And even though I normally like to keep sugar to a minimum, I do love to indulge on occasion (I am human after all!). Plus I do usually attend a cookie exchange or two around the holidays, and, of course, I can’t arrive (or leave) empty handed! So I’m excited to share the recipe for Chocolate Chip Blondies below, which is what I made this year.
In case you’re wondering, a cookie exchange party is when each guest brings a dozen or two cookies for others to take home. One annual party I attend used to require you to bag up your cookies (one bag full for each person), so there was no way around bringing dozens and DOZENS of cookies home. Then I attended another party and saw they just put their cookies out on platters and offered empty bags so guests could decide how many they wanted of each. Not to mention you can sample the cookies that way! So there are all sorts of ways to do these parties, but no matter what, they’re always a fun time. I’d love to hear about your cookie exchange parties in the comments!
