For the last few days I’ve been in the kitchen tweaking five new cookie flavors.
Coconut Dream to the Third Power
Peppermint Mocha Latte
Christmas Eve Wassail
Hot Cocoa with Marshmallows
Not My Grandma’s Fruitcake Two Ways (Kids and Adult Version)
These are flavors that have been floating around in my cookie head for a while now and after a few fails and looking in the oven more than once only to mutter “Oh my, I hadn’t anticipated THAT would happen!” I’m happy with how the flavors came together and even more excited to share them with you in the coming days.
But first . . . I’m seating here with trays of test cookies I need to get out of the house. I’ve already individually bagged each cookie, cushioned them in bubble wrap, and sealed them up in three separate shipping boxes for three. of. you. That’s two dozen cookies, of five different flavors, for three of you.
So here’s whatcha gotta do to enter to be a winner winner chicken dinner . . .
1. Live in these here United States. Mama don’t want to fill out custom forms and pay a kazillion dollars in shipping overseas.
2. Go to this special holiday page for the ALS Association and spend a few minutes reading the stories of three families who know ALS up close and personal all too well.
3. And then, please . . . share that link on your Facebook page and if you don’t have a Facebook page, send an email with the link to five of your friends so they can see ALS through the eyes of Amie, Chris, and Pete.
And once you’ve done all that, come back here and in the comment section below share the name of the cause or organization you’re personally passionate about along with sharing a link to their website or Facebook page.
This Saturday at noon (PST) I’ll randomly choose three names from the comment section, and the winners will be announced on the Sweet Hope Cookies Facebook page. Be sure to check Facebook at that time to see if you’re a winner because I want to get the cookies out in the mail first thing on Monday morning. The sooner the fresher, the fresher the better, the better the happier we all will be!
Oh. And if you have some spare change and a twinge of wanting to do a really good thing, you can make a donation to the ALS Association through the secure
Sweet Hope Cookies ALS donation page.
