Today I wanted to share a quick diy cookie mix in a jar gift that has been a longtime favorite of mine. This charming candy cookie mix jar gift idea is perfect for a teacher, neighbor, or anyone you want to show appreciation for on Valentine’s Day! Of course, it also works for any holiday, but the paper doily and candy theme for this particular jar are Valentine’s themed.

For the purposes of this mix you will need:

Coated chocolate candies for diy cookie mix in a jar gift

Step One: Gather your supplies

I found my pretty french mason jar at Homegoods for a couple of dollars, but this one is very similar and available online. The twine and paper doily were both from the Target dollar spot, but again I have sourced similar twine here and doilies here!

Measuring flour from a glass cup

Step Two: Mix your ingredients

Before you add your ingredients to the jar, it’s best to mix in your salt and baking soda into the flour.

Step Three: Add your ingredients to the jar with a paper funnel

Getting the flour mix and other ingredients into the jar is much easier with a simple paper funnel.

Next add your m&ms.

Tip: Before putting in your brown sugar, use a brown sugar saver

After putting your m&ms in the jar, follow that with the brown sugar.

These little brown sugar savers are the trick that allow me to keep my brown sugar canister on my kitchen counter. They are great for the mix because the brown sugar can harden and make it difficult to get the ingredients out of the jar. However, a note that you included one may be a good idea, so the recipient isn’t startled to see one in the cookie mix!

Last, add the granulated sugar.

I thought that the doily and twine was a sweet touch! I simply looped the twine around the jar a couple of times and tied a bow.
