If you've always wanted to make these sweet jar gifts for Christmas but didn't know how, here are step by step directions for how to make "cookie mix in a jar" gifts! 's Who wouldn't LOVE to be on the receiving end of this gift?!


3/4 c. sugar

1/4 c. packed brown sugar

1 3/4 c. flour mixed with 1 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. baking soda

8 large Reese's peanut butter cups cut into 1/2 inch pieces (wrap in plastic wrap)


Place white sugar in jar. Next is the brown sugar, measure and then fluff with fork as you add this layer so it won't be in one clump. Press down slightly. Mix flour, baking powder and soda together, then add to jar using a large spoon or small measuring cup. The 1/4 measure is perfect for filling the jar. Now place the wrapped peanut butter cup pieces on top and don't worry about keeping the plastic wrap closed. Bunch it up at the top and it will stay together when you place the lid on. 

When you are ready to prepare your gifts, attach the following note with red and gold holiday ribbons. You can even cut the note out directly from our print page, just make extra copies if needed. Use a hole punch to attach ribbon.
