    DA Milan: Holiday Cookie/Candy Exchange!


    Join us for the first annual Milan Dems Abroad Holiday Cookie/Candy Exchange!

    WHEN: Sunday, December 16th, 4pm-6pm
    WHERE: A member's home, Zone: Isola MM3

    Suggested Donation: €10

    Join us for a Holiday Cookie/Candy Exchange! Bring your favorite homemade holiday cookies or candies and enjoy tasting everyone's special treats before we exchange our goods!

    You'll take home at least two dozen cookies and/or candy pieces for your own holiday celebration, or to give as gifts!

    Enjoy tea, prosecco and savory bocconcini with your Democratic friends while sharing your favorite holiday treats!

    The Rules (there are always rules!):

    Each guest should bring a minimum of 2 dozen homemade cookies or candy pieces to exchange + several extras for our tasting tray, as well as your own dish or platter to display your treats.

    Please RSVP by December 12th with the type of cookie you will bring and a copy of the recipe. A full list of recipes will be distributed via email after the event.

    NB: you may be asked to switch recipes to avoid duplicates - the idea is for everyone to come away with a variety of goodies!

    We suggest you bring several smaller containers and/or plastic bags to hold the different types of goodies you’ll take home – this will help you to avoid mixing flavors.

    We look forward to seeing you there!
