The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap


…..how fun does that sound?  Its a cookie swap hosted by:

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013

How It Works:

  1. Step Sign Up. Fill out the sign-up form to participate. Be sure you meet the basic requirements for participation (listed below).
  2. Step Donate. Once you complete the sign up form, you will be re-directed to PayPal to make a $4.00 tax-deductible donation directly to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. 100% of this donation goes directly to CFKC. You MUST complete this payment to participate in the swap (Why do we require this?) Once your payment is approved you will receive an email confirming your donation and your participation.
  3. Step Match. We will send you the names and addresses of three other food bloggers. These are the people to whom you will be sending cookies! It’s important you keep these matches a secret until they receive your cookies.
  4. Step Bake & Ship. Now comes the fun part! Whip up a batch of delicious cookies and ship one dozen to each of your three matches by the shipment deadline. Don’t forget to photograph your cookies for your post before you send them off!
  5. Step Post. Post your cookie recipe on your blog and submit the post along with an image (if you have one). We will then collect and compile all participants’ posts and publish them in one huge roundup!

I’m so excited to be participating this year in this fund raiser/food swap! (You know I have this new additiction about food swapping so this fits right in!)   For years I have been wanting to hold my own Holiday Cookie Swap amongst friends/relatives/neighbors but November is such a busy time and it never seems to come together as a full blown plan.  It always stays in “the works” phase. 

Anyway, I signed up for this bad boy yesterday.  One because its a Food Swap and two because it’s for a great cause.  With each donation of $4.00 100% of the proceeds gets donated to Cookies for Kids Cancer

There are a few other details that you can look over if you are interested in participating in the cookie swap, but don’t delay.  You have to sign up no later than November 4th to get on the list.  After that you can only salivate over all the cookies all the rest of us will be eating, sharing, and posting about in December.  Don’t miss the bus!

On of the requirements is that you have a blog.  If you don’t have a blog and want to follow along in the fun anyway, the Twitter hashtag for the event is #fbcookieswap and don’t forget to check out their other social media spaces too like Facebook and Instagram!
