Can you believe tomorrow is December?! We're in full holiday mode at Casa de Meyer. The tree is trimmed, christmas cards have been ordered and holiday baking has started. This time of year is full of  parties ranging from cookie exchanges to work dinners.

I love the idea of a cookie exchange. It's a fun way to get the ladies together and exchange a few cookies and recipes. Typically when you're going to a cookie exchange you'll bring X dozen of cookies and take home the same. While 12 dozen cookies sound awesome that's way too much for me. I prefer a cookie exchange where everyone brings 1-2 dozen cookies and you leave with a few of each cookie. Make sense?

Anyway let's get down to business.

How to Prep for a Cookie Exchange [It's unbelievably simple.]

1. Determine what to make and how much
This year I'm making Chocolate Caramel Turtles! They're super easy to make ahead of time.

2. Determine how will you present your cookies
Personally I like using Rubbermaid TakeAlongs. They are the perfect vessel to house your delicious holiday meals/snacks when sharing them with friends/family and celebrating the season of giving.

Adding to the fun, Holiday TakeAlongs come in limited edition red, green and prints for the holidays and will be available in-store: 10/29 – 12/24

TakeAlongs product features:
➺ Quik Clik Seal™ keeps food secure and helps prevent spills.
➺ Soft lid grips the container tightly for a great seal, yet with a large tab opening is easy.
➺ Microwavable, top rack dishwasher and freezer safe.

3. Spread the joy
Now that your treats are made and you're ready to head out the door, spice up your Rubbermaid TakeAlongs by wrapping it with twine and a fun tag. These will also make fun gifts for your awesome neighbors.

Now if you're hosting a cookie exchange you'll have a whole different prep list. We'll save that for another day.

Ready to spice up your cookie exchange? Pick up Rubbermaid TakeAlongs the next time you're at Walmart. They're also perfect for all those Holiday leftovers.
