Blogger Cookie Swap 2012

I was super excited to find out about the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012 and participated for the first time this year.  

Here’s what we did:
I received the names, websites, and addresses of three awesome food bloggers. I sent a dozen  Chocolate Caramel Cookies to each blogger, hoping that they would travel well and not be a gooey mess once they traveled across the country.  This year, the registration fee for the cookie exchange is being donated to Cookies for Kids' Cancer-a national non-profit organization committed to funding new therapies used in the fight against pediatric cancer. As a gift for registering OXO sent us all a "be a good cookie" spatula. Awesome... 

Who did I send cookies to?
What did I make?
I sent them these Chocolate Caramel Cookies, which are made from a basic Chocolate Cookie recipe, but with a twist. I added a rolo to the center of each cookie to give it a nice gooey, unexpected center.
Here is the recipe...

Who sent me cookies?
 I received these beautiful sugar cookies from Lizy B's

and these awesome wafer cookies from Nerdy Baker...
and... yummy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies from
 white and dorky chef-

I'm looking forward to next year's swap!

Rolos are my absolute favorite and an underrated candy in my opinion. I would have loved to have gotten those from you! I guess I'll have to make my own :)
