How Many Cookies Per Person Calculator

Are you responsible for dessert and need to know how many cookies to make for an event? Perhaps you’re having a cookie table or cookie bar at your wedding reception or family reunion? Because of their small size, guests like to nibble on cookies much like they do appetizers. Plus, they always like to take a few with them on their way out.

How Many Cookies Per Person

The general rule of thumb for any event is to have between 3-6 cookies available per person (a good ‘handful’). This will vary depending on the size of the cookies, and whether there will be other desserts and appetizers; some guests may prefer savory snacks over sweets while others might prefer a slice of cake or cupcake over cookies.

How Many Cookies For A Wedding

Following the rule above, for 100 guests you should have between 300 and 600 cookies available.
