Who's Your Secret Betty?

Created November 28, 2022
Bettys know that some of the best gifts are crafted from the heart. There is so much thought and feeling that goes into freshly baked pies or cookies that have been passed down from generation to generation. We also know that receiving homemade desserts or cards can make someone's day a little brighter, and isn't that what this time of year is all about? Going the extra mile to make someone feel special? And Betty, we know you have a few tricks up your sleeve... but to help get the creative juices flowing, we have the perfect idea just for you!

How-To Guide

Introducing Secret Betty. This is where you make homemade gifts for your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, or really anyone! Here’s the catch, they can’t know it’s from you. Once you have made your creation, you’ll add a note of instructions for them to return the favor to someone in their life. Don’t worry, we’ve provided one for you so you can focus on baking!

Secret Betty Letter

A Secret Betty has left you a delicious treat.
Now it’s your turn to repeat.
Pick a friend and bake them something oh-so-nice.
Don’t forget to include a Secret Betty note to help advise.
This time around, it's your turn to have some fun…
Then drop your gift off, ring the doorbell and run.
Hip, hip, hooray on a job well done!
Have a safe and happy holiday, everyone!

Special Holiday Delivery

Next up is the delivery method. There are a couple of ways you can do this.

  • Deliver it by hand, discreetly place it near their front door, knock or ring the doorbell and leave. The goal is not to be seen. After all, we don’t want to ruin the surprise!
  • Ship it, but don’t include a return address! If it’s baked goods or other food items, make sure you pack accordingly.

Get Your Future Betty Involved

Secret Betty is the perfect activity to do with the young Bettys in your life. Have them help you bake the cookies, pick out the wrapping paper or gift basket/box, personalize the letter, etc. The more tasks you give them, the more fun it will be! Plus, they’ll love keeping this little secret between you and them. It’s a win for you and your little one.

Let’s Get Baking

Freshly baked treats are certainly the way to everyone’s heart. We’ve collected a few recipes to help you and your kids get started (helping tasks included)! Feel free to make one or all. Remember, it’s the thought that counts. Betty, they’re going to love whatever you bake them.

We can’t wait to see what our fellow Bettys bake this season for their loved ones. Take tons of Secret Betty photos and share your stories with us on social @BettyCrocker. And remember — shh… it’s a secret. Happy Holidays!
