Cookie Swap: Sara's Caramel Heart Chocolate Cookies

'Tis the season of holiday cookie swaps and to keep things COVID-safe, we've gone virtual

To keep things socially distant, we decided to host a virtual exchange among the FLIK Hospitality team. Join us all December long as we swap recipes with you and our fellow FLIK family members and share our favorite homemade holiday treats!  

To kick us off, Tracy made a list and checked it twice, and Sara's Caramel Heart Chocolate Cookies are certainly nice. 

Cookie 7

A traditional cookie exchange is a holiday party where friends, family, neighbors, and loved ones gather to share and swap their favorite cookies. Each party guest is responsible for bringing a unique cookie to the swap. The assortment of cookies are then set up in a grand display, and guests are invited to sample the treats and build their own goodie boxes of cookies to take home at the end of the night.
