The premise is simple – you sign up, make a nominal donation (which goes to charity) and you receive three food bloggers names and addresses. Next, you go make some cookies, send a dozen to each of the names you get and in return you get three dozen back in the post.
The registration / donation fee is only US$4.00 and goes to Cookies For Kids’s Cancer, with OXO matching donations dollar-for-dollar up to $100k.
Finally, you need to post your cookie recipe to your blog and submit a photo of your cookies as well. Signups opened earlier this week and close at midnight Eastern Time on 5 November. You’ll get your names and addresses by November 12th, get yours in the post by December 5th and post your recipe on December 12th.
Where recipes are concerned, the recipe must be new to you (so you can’t have posted it before) and while the competition is US-based, Irish bloggers are welcome. There has to be a minimum of four from the country and you’re only matched with bloggers from your own country.
So what do you reckon – up for a cookie swap between Irish food bloggers? Check out fbcookieswap.com for the full details but if anyone’s game, I’m up for trying my hand at a few cookies (or at least asking Mrs. Any Given Food-to-be to prep a few). Cheeky.
