I didn’t experience my first white elephant party until I was in my early twenties.


 I can’t fully explain to you how I went so long without knowing the glory of The White Elephant.

But oh yes, I can still remember the day. It was at my first kinda grown-up job in an office and my poor supervisor had to try to explain what a White Elephant Party entailed. I remember the look in her eyes; motes of disbelief, sadness (on my behalf, I’d like to think) and a hint of desperation as she tried to provide an answer when I asked if a plastic paper towel dispenser would be an appropriate gift.

But enough about me! Let’s talk about White Elephant affairs. We all know the gifts aren’t typically the sort you’d do battle to bring home, so what’s the big draw? It is a great way to get rid of some random stuff in your house. But you could also share some super-delish food stuffs! Here’s a fantastic list of yummy treats that will impress much more than that ceramic snowman village you were thinking about bringing.

One time I almost died because I was with someone that decided to eat a jalapeño popper at an inopportune time. I later married that person. Maybe that means something equally amazing and ridiculous will occur for all those who enjoy these easy-peasy, cheesy spiced bites!

Okay, so I think it’s only fair to warn you about this item on two points. #1) It is so easy – all you have to is put the things in the slow cooker! And #2) It’s so tasty, you’re likely to find people just eating it out of the slow cooker with a spoon. Don’t judge them.
