day 11: cookie bar

Kiss your average holiday cookie exchange buh-bye. Challenge yourself to a whole new world of cookie possibilities where putting your hand in the cookie jar is encouraged.

Cookie Bar
jars in multiple sizes
homemade or store-bought cookies
baker’s twine
craft paper

1. Collect multiple jars.
2. Tie baker’s twine around the top of each to cohesify.
3. Wrap boxes in craft paper to use as risers on your bar.
4. Place homemade, store-bought or guest-made cookies in the jars. Each jar with one kind.
5. Enjoy the cookie bar!
6. Put tags with each guest’s name on take-home boxes tied in baker’s twine. At the end of the party, let guest fill up their boxes. If you’re feeling really ambitious, have a cookie-baking-and-decorating party first!
