The Holiday's with Duncan Hines - Cookie Swap

Pin It
Thanks to Duncan Hines for sponsoring my writing. There's no limit to the baking possibilities, so grab your favorite Duncan Hines mix and Comstock or Wilderness fruit fillings and Bake On!

Yeah!! I'm so excited I was chosen by Clever Girls Collective to write a post on Duncan Hines.  I have discovered a boxed cake mix can make the greatest - non cake items, like Cookies!! 

First up - how about a cookie swap!  I'm hosting a swap next week at my house for my Gotta Eat friends.  We get together every month for lunch, after all, a girls "Gotta Eat."  Every Christmas I host it at my house and we do a cookie exchange and exchange gifts.  Usually we draw names but this year we are going to have a dirty Santa exchange.  Stealing gifts and the works.  It should be fun!!

I'm making chicken Salad sandwiches on croissants and I'm buying the already made chicken salad from Gabriel's Dessert's which is Paula Deen's cousin and she lives right here in Marietta and has a great restaurant.

Look at this yumminess

I'm also going to make some really tasty cookies that I saw on Heathers blog Whipperberry.  Heather made these fabulous cookies Red Velvet Cookies with With Chocolate Chunks! I have made these numerous times and they never disappoint.

Link to Heather's Recipe and amazing blog  here

You must try these - a few alterations to the Dunkin Hines cake mix and you have cookie dough!
1 cup flour
1 egg 
2 sticks of butter
white chocolate chips
 cake mix

The complete recipe can be found above on Heather's Blog.  She also takes amazing photos of her creations both food and craft.  She is amazing.

And how about a few Gingerbread Men.
These cuties can be made with a spice cake mix - recipe found here

And these Cinnamon Crinkles are easy to make too - recipe found here

So, if you are hosting a cookie exchange and time is limited you can make cookies the easy way with a cake mix.  Who knew, I didn't, and I'm so excited to try the many great recipes on the Dunkin Hines site.

Remember to check out Duncan Hines' website to find some great recipes for your holiday get-together! I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective
