Thanks to Duncan Hines for sponsoring my writing. There's no limit to the baking possibilities, so grab your favorite Duncan Hines mix and Comstock or Wilderness fruit fillings and Bake On! www.duncanhines.com. For the past couple years I have been lucky enough to attend an awesome cookie swap with some of my favorite blog friends! This year (and last year too!) it was hosted at the gorgeous home of Whitney Caroline! I carpooled over with J and had a wonderful girls night in!
We were supposed to bring a holiday cookie and a pretty plate to swap. I whipped up some chocolate covered pretzels, which was a total cop-out. I was tired, they were easy and luckily for my friends, still delicious! We ate appetizers, cookies, cakes, brownies and drank all sorts of yummy bevarages and just had an all around great girls night. We caught up on what is happening in each other's lives and laughed until our bellies hurt! (Or was that because of the cookies... Hmmm?)
I do have to share with you: my favorite cookie of the evening was by no other than, my shopping/starbucks/chatty partner in crime, Michelle!
She whipped up these!
Um, chocolate + coconut? YES PLEASE!
They are insanely good and Michelle said that they weren't difficult to make either!
Here is the recipe!
Now go! Make some for your holiday parties that you are fragging your feet on deciding what to make. I know, personally I have procrastinated SO much this season. I am very thankful for easy and amazing recipes and gift ideas of any sort!!
