Cookies, Cookies and Christmas Cards

11 Dec

Working two jobs has its perks.

Both of my teams are hosting holiday cookie swaps! Which means means by Saturday I will have more cookies than I could ever dream of!

Tonight, I made both of my contributions for the exchanges, with both recipes being found through blogs! Since I made a complete mess of my kitchen, I don’t have any “in progress” pictures, but did get some photos of the finished products.

First I made Chocolate Crinkle Cake Mix Cookies, that I found on Julie’s blog. So simple and adorable.

Then, I made Hot Chocolate Snowballs as featured on Melissa’s Cuisine.I originally saw these on Pinterest and thought they were cute but wasn’t sure what to expect. After sampling the finished product (quality control and all, right?) the are AMAZING! It’s always a minor victory to successfully complete  a pin from Pinterest.

As a bonus, the hot chocolate cookies call for some of Melissa’s homemade hot chocolate mix-so now I have a nice supply of hot chocolate to get me through the holiday season!

Looking forward to getting my swapped cookies!

In other Christmas news, I am participating in a Christmas Card Swap, hosted by Zaneta of Runner’s Luck.
