Goodness in a Jar

You know those nasty cookie mixes in a jar? NOT THESE.
A few years ago I tested a bunch of recipes for cookie mixes. And this is the winner. And really. When the main ingredient is chunks of Reeses Cups, how could it not be the winner??

I’m not very good at packaging. As I’ve mentioned before. So it’s a good thing these babies look awesome before you add anything.

(The little tubs in the pic are homemade lip gloss for kid friend gifts–didn’t turn out so well… still experimenting on that recipe…I think we’ll keep ’em around for an April fool’s joke or something because they are AWFUL tasting—too much Kool-Aide mix!)

Merry Ho Ho Ho.

You want the recipe? It’s not a secret. And it’s not mine.
I love the part where it says DO NOT USE Diet Margarine.
What the heck is Diet Margarine? And do you have a better mix in a jar recipe…? I’m thinking about creating a hearty oatmeal pancake mix for next year…

    Mmmm… My MIL got me a cookbook this year for Christmas called “Gifts In a Jar” .. it’s a whole series of 4, and she gave me the everyday dinners book. It is AWESOME! I plan on testing all these recipes out to figure out which ones are the good ones… cause 2009 … look out man! The post office just might be delivering lots of dinners in a jar! LOL
