Cookie Exchange

I was looking back and realized that I haven't posted in awhile so I thought you might be interested in my cookie exchange project.

Mother Lode Pretzel Rods  

They are loaded with caramel and three different chips.  Then to make them Christmasy, I added some red, green, and white candy sequins and Christmas trees.  I was told they were yummy but I wouldn't know as I don't like pretzels.  I always try to make something a little out of the ordinary for cookie exchanges.  I cringe at the mention of sugar cookies and thumbprints.  So blah!

Four dozen pretzel rods later!  

I was actually surprised at how quick and easy they were.  Wrapping them was the worst part of it all because some of them were bigger.  It got challenging to see if I could stuff the rod in a pretzel wrapper without breaking it.  I did it with no lose of rods!

The girls did a good job on their cookies.  I received a good variety (Oatmeal, Italian bars, Ricotta cookies) and they are now my centerpiece on my table.  Not for long though!  My husband is a sugar hound!
