It’s that time again!  Time for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap!  Last year was our first year.  Here’s how it works.  Food Bloggers from all over, sign up and in the process we donate money to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.  This year our donations were matched by the awesome sponsors of the event shown below and the goal of $10,000 was surpassed!!!  Yay!  We helped to raise $13,778!!!!!!  How incredible is that?!?!?!?!fbcookieswap2013_white

After that we’re matched up with three other bloggers that signed up to participate but they don’t know, so it’s kinda like a secret Santa cookie swap.   Then the cookies start showing up in the mail.  It’s a pretty happy day when you get a dozen cookies in the mail, let me tell you!  The cookies were all delicious and I’ll link to them through out the day on Facebook as their posts go live so you can check them out too.

This year I sent out these Chocolate Chip & Peppermint Biscotti.  I wanted to put together a hot chocolate package for my matches.  I sent a little holiday gift bag filled with my Holiday Marshmallow Bites, these tasty biscotti, and some hot chocolate mix.  I love to dip Biscotti into hot chocolate and coffee.  It might be because I like an excuse to have cookies with breakfast!

I hope you enjoy these cookies and find some other yummy cookie choices to make this Christmas season.
