Cookies in a Jar Recipe 1: Chocolate Chip Cookies

The first cookies you can make a creative jar mix for are chocolate chip cookies. This cookie is probably one of the most popular ones in the world. You can make this cookies-in-a-jar mix with normal chocolate chips or with M&M’s, the choice is up to you.

Chocolate Chip Cookies Jar mix

Create an amazing & affordable gift idea: a chocolate chip cookies jar mix.

Are you looking for an original affordable gift idea that’s suitable for any occasion? Well, here is a way to create your own chocolate chip cookies in a jar mix. Add some personal touches and you’re done. This DIY gift idea is perfect for when you’re in a time crunch, and you don’t have time to shop. You probably have all the supplies you need, and if you don’t they’re pretty cheap. So let me show you how you can create your own chocolate chip cookie jar mix.

Supplies:

Supplies Chocolate Chip Cookies Jar mix

To create this chocolate chip cookies jar you will need:

  • a 1-liter mason jar
  • a spoon to help you evenly fill it
  • a label & ribbon to attach it
  • 1 cup of self-raising flour (=220 g)
  • 1 cup of dark brown sugar (=220 g)
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar (= 100 g)
  • a bag of vanilla sugar (is optional)
  • 215 g of chocolate chips (or m&m’s if want something more colorful)

Preparation:

To prepare, I suggest that you measure out the quantities beforehand. This makes it easier to stay focused, which for me is always a struggle while baking. So put all the right amounts of the ingredients in front of you and then you can start.

If you want to add a label to the jar with instructions on it and with some extra information on it, you can find the label I made for this recipe at the bottom of the page. Just print it out. You can also write an accompanying card if you want to write something more personal, just take the instructions and necessary ingredients from the label at the bottom of this post.

Step 1: Fill the bottom of the mason jar with a layer of flour

The first thing you need to do is to put the flour in the mason jar. I always try to put the flower at the bottom, because it makes the biggest mess. I also didn’t just pour it in there, because the opening of the jar was too small.

The spoon was also really useful to flatten out the surface of the flour once all of it was in the jar. This is important because you want the jar to have lovely and clean layers, so that it looks appealing from the outside. Once you have poured the flour in, you might need to clean up the top of the jar, because flour tends to go everywhere.

Step 2: Put in the layers of sugar

The first layer of sugar that you want to put into the jar, is the brown sugar layer. This way you will have a lovely darker colored layer separating the white flour from the white sugar. It just looks nicer that way.

Again, use a spoon to flatten the surface of the brown sugar. Another reason why putting brown sugar on top of the flower is useful, is because you can really press the brown sugar down. Brown sugar is pretty dense and it creates an almost solid barrier between the flour and the rest of the ingredients. Don’t worry if you spill a bit of sugar, this recipe doesn’t require the most precise of measurements.

Once you put the brown sugar in, you can go ahead and pour the white sugar and vanilla sugar in there as well. These two sugars don’t have to be separated from each other, because they look exactly the same.

Step 3: Pour in the M&M’s (or chocolate chips)

The last ingredient to go into the mason jar is the M&M’s (or chocolate chips). These are really easy to just pour into the chocolate chip cookies jar. I used M&M’s because I just had them lying around and because they look so beautiful in a recipe jar mix like this. You don’t have to use real M&M’s though, I didn’t either. I used Aldi M&M’s, which are a lot cheaper than the real deal. So, now you are done with the chocolate chip mixture. All that is left is to finish it off with some decorations.

Step 4: Put a ribbon and a label on it

To really finish up this chocolate chip cookies jar, I decided to add on a ribbon with a custom-made label. This label says what’s in the jar and what needs to be added to the mixture. It also contains the instruction on how to make the chocolate chip cookies with this recipe.

You just fold the label over horizontally and vertically and then you have a fun little label. You can find this label at the bottom of the page if you want to use it yourself. It’s also an idea to make one yourself.

Then use a hole puncher to make a hole at the top left corner and put some ribbon through. Tie the ribbon around the mason jar and you’re done.

Cookies in a Jar Recipe 2: Brownies

The second cookies jar mix is the one to make brownies with. This is another classic that you will find on many ‘favorite’ lists. This jar is smaller than the other two cookie jars. I think this is a great bonus recipe mix to gift along with kitchen items as an extra gift.

A quick and delicious DIY gift: a brownies jar mix.

Are you looking for an original affordable gift idea that’s suitable for any occasion? Well, here is a way to create your own brownies in a jar mix. Add some personal touches and you’re done. This DIY gift idea is perfect for when you’re in a time crunch, and you don’t have time to shop. You probably have all the supplies you need, and if you don’t they’re pretty cheap. So let me show you how you can create your own brownies jar mix.

supplies to create a brownies jar mix

To create this brownies jar you will need:

  • a 1/2-liter mason jar
  • a spoon to help you evenly fill it
  • a label & ribbon to attach it
  • 1/2 cup of self-raising flour (=115 g)
  • 55g of cacao powder
  • 1 cup of white sugar (= 200 g)
  • a bag of vanilla sugar (optional)

Preparation:

Once again I suggest that you measure out the quantities beforehand. This makes it easier to stay focused, which for me is always a struggle while baking. So put all the right amounts of the ingredients in front of you and then you can get started.

If you want to add a label to the jar with instructions on it and with some extra information on it, you can find the label I made for this recipe at the bottom of the page. Just print it out. You can also write an accompanying card if you want to write something more personal, just take the instructions and necessary ingredients from the label at the bottom of this post.

Step 1: Fill the bottom of the mason jar with a layer of flour

The first thing you need to do is to put the flour in the mason jar. I always try to put the flower at the bottom, because it makes the biggest mess. I also didn’t just pour it in there, because the opening of the jar was too small.

The spoon was also really useful to flatten out the surface of the flour once all of it was in the jar. This is important because you want the jar to have nice separate layers on the outside. Once you have poured the flour in, clean up any flour that got caught at the top.

Step 2: Put in the cacao powder

The next layer to go in is the cacao powder. Because of its beautiful brown color, it makes for a great ‘in-between’ layer. This way, your brownies jar mix will look more appealing.

I advise you to use a spoon to flatten the surface of each layer, this way you will have more control over the end result. Another reason why putting cacao powder on top of the flower is useful, is because you can really press the cacao powder down. I looks really appealing from the outside with that darker layer separating the flour and the sugar.

Once you put the cacao powder in, you can go ahead and move on to the next layer.

Step 3: Pour in the sugar

The last ingredient to go into the mason jar is the sugar. You can pour in the regular and the bag of vanilla sugar at once. So now you are done with the brownies mixture. All that is left, is to finish it off with some decorations.

Step 4: Put a ribbon and a label on it

To really finish up this brownies jar, I decided to add on a ribbon with a custom-made label. This label says what’s in the jar and what needs to be added to the mixture. It also contains the instruction on how to make the brownies with this recipe. You just fold the label over horizontally and vertically and then you have a fun little label. You can find this label at the bottom of the page if you want to use it yourself. Use a hole puncher to make a hole at the top left corner and put some ribbon through. Tie the ribbon around the mason jar and you’re done.

Cookies in a Jar Recipe 3: Peanut Butter Cookies

The last cookies in a jar recipe is for making peanut butter cookies. This recipe is in a bigger mason jar, and it is a good idea to gift a small jar of peanut butter alongside with it, because that’s also one of the ingredients to make the cookies. Though, it’s definitely not a necessity as most people will some already in their pantry.

supplies & ingredients for a DIY peanut butter cookies jar mix

To create this peanut butter cookies jar you will need:

  • a 1.2-liter mason jar
  • a spoon to help you evenly fill it
  • a label & ribbon to attach it
  • 2 1/2 cup of self-raising flour (=220 g)
  • 1 cup of brown sugar (=220 g)
  • 1 cup of white sugar (= 200 g)
  • a 250 ml mason jar
  • 1 cup of peanut butter

Preparation:

To prepare, I suggest that you measure out the quantities beforehand. This makes it a lot easier to focus on making it look nice in your jar. If you want to add a label to the jar with instructions on it and with some extra information on it, you can find the label I made for this recipe at the bottom of the page. Just print it out.

You can also write an accompanying card if you want to write something more personal, just take the instructions and necessary ingredients from the label at the bottom of this post.

Fill a small jar with peanut butter

To make this really look nice and classy, you can gift a cup of peanut butter in a small mason jar together with the big mason jar. Just take one cup of peanut butter and transfer it to a small mason jar. I used two spoons to help me do this, and cleaned off the edge afterward. Be aware that it can get pretty sticky in this step.

Step 1: Fill the bottom of the mason jar with a layer of flour

The first thing you need to do is to put the flour in the mason jar. I always try to put the flower at the bottom, because it makes the biggest mess. I also didn’t just pour it in there, because the opening of the jar was too small. And it’s a lot of flour so be patient during this first step.

The spoon was also really useful to flatten out the surface of the flour once all of it was in the jar. And pack in there, because it’s going to be a pretty tight fit.

Step 2: Put in the layer of brown sugar

The first layer of sugar that you want to put into the jar, is the brown sugar layer. This way you will have a lovely darker colored layer separating the white flour from the white sugar. It just looks nicer that way. This brown sugar even looks a bit like the color of peanut butter, which I think really suits this gift idea.

Again, use a spoon to flatten the surface of the brown sugar. Another reason why putting brown sugar on top of the flower is useful, is because you can really press the brown sugar down. Brown sugar is pretty dense and it creates an almost solid barrier between the flour and the rest of the ingredients.

Step 3: Pour in the white sugar

The last ingredient to go into the mason jar is the white sugar. There probably isn’t going to be a lot of room left in the jar, so be careful while spooning in the white sugar.

I also had a slightly smaller mason jar that I advised you to use. So I changed my advised size to make it a bit easier for you. Next time I’m making this peanut butter cookies jar mix, I’ll be using a bigger mason jar as well. So after putting in the sugar and flattening it, the filling is done. Now you are done with the peanut butter cookie mixture. All that is left is to finish it off with some decorations.

Step 4: Put a ribbon and a label on it

To really finish up this peanut butter cookies jar, I decided to add on a ribbon with a custom-made label. This label says what’s in the jar and what needs to be added to the mixture. It also contains the instruction on how to make the peanut butter cookies with this recipe.

You just fold the label over horizontally and vertically and then you have a fun little label. You can find this label at the bottom of the page if you want to use it yourself.

Then use a hole puncher to make a hole at the top left corner and put some ribbon through. Tie the ribbon around the mason jar and you’re done.
