Packaging ready made baking mixes in jars for gifts isn’t a new idea by any means and over the years I’ve done my share of fancy mixes. This year I’m going back to a classic though-a fantastic solidly awesome Chocolate Chip Cookie mix in a jar recipe! And I’ve got a few tips for making your mixes look Pinterest-perfect as well as a free printable!
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 quart size mason jar
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl. Place mixture in 1-quart jar. Now for the tip to getting your mix to look “pretty,” use the back of a spoon to pack the flour mixture down around the outside of the jar. Add the brown sugar next using the same method to pack it down in the jar.
Finish by adding the sugar and top with the chocolate chips.
Include this printable with your gift so the recipient knows how to use the mix! If you click here or the image below you can download a pdf with four recipe printables per page.
I hope you enjoy this quick and easy DIY Christmas gift! I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun and easy DIY decor project!
