2. Fill your jars. Start with 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/s tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt.

Then add 1/2 cup brown sugar followed by 1/2 cup sugar.

Then add 2/3 cup chopped Christmas M&Ms.

Top off with 2/3 cup whole Christmas M&Ms.

3. From there you will SAVE the print/recipe tag by CLICKING on the image above and then RIGHT-CLICKING and SAVING.

Then open it in a program like word and print. It should be about 2.25 inches x 4 inches which fits the jar perfectly. I suggest printing onto cardstock so the recipe can be more durable for later use.

Tape onto your jar and then tie some twine around.

4. You can embellish the top by putting some washi tape on it. Just makes it look even cuter.ย ;)

  1. I have a 16 oz blue mason jar and would love to put together a recipe in it for a White Elephant Gift Exchange. I love the pop of color the crushed M&M’s give and your recipe printable is so cute. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’m a newbie at cookie mix in the jar (or cookie mix at all for that matter). Do I need pack down the flour and brown sugar in the measuring cups? I measured like the directions said and packed it down in the jar and I feel like there’s too much room left compared to what I see in your pictures. And I used quart jars. Thanks!

    1. Hi Chelsea. I’m sorry you’re having problems with this. I always pack down the brown sugar for recipes. When I put it in the jars it just pat it down a bit with a spoon but don’t push it down a ton. How much room is left at the top?

  3. Hi! One additional question,

    I decided to try the recipe first before giving out the gifts. Especially because I am not the best measurer. It is too dry. Am I missing something?? I added 1/4 c of water and they turned out good. Now I am considering changing the recipe even though I have already printed and laminated it. Did I do something wrong? I did the recipe exactly.

    1. Hi Jennifer. So sorry you’re having problems. You added the butter, oil, egg and vanilla right? It should be fine. This is the recipe we use all the time, just cut in half, which I’ve done several times. Not sure what is happening. :/

    2. Same thing happened to me, I followed the directions. Are the measurements of the butter,oil and egg correct? My dough was powdery and didn’t come together.

  4. Elements typically seen on movie screens were guns drawn and cleavages exposed.
    The style of a well used movie theater can be carried out using the structural arranging as part of your room.

    Hence, the people are well educated and highly concerned about the development of the region and keenly look forward to make their lives always easy.

  5. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m
    trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share. Thank you!

  6. Cute idea! When I printed the recipe it came out 4 x 6, what did I do wrong? It’s too big for the quart jar and if I trim it, I will cut off the pattern off.

  7. It is half-way down the small intestine between its duodenum and ileum sections.
    Together with the hydrochloric acid, these digestive juices further breakdown the food into absorbable substance.

    Popular forms of fibre include wheat bran and psyllium husks;
    however these fibres may bloat some people.

  8. Hi Kristyn, This is the first time I have visited you site, love it. I really love the Cookie in a Jar idea. This would make a great gift. I think the worst part of baking is getting everything together. I usually find out I’m missing something. I also have been looking for Home Made Gifts to carry in our Store. I have a little Gift Shop/Convenience Store, I think this would be perfect. Thanks so much.
    If you have a chance please check out my Blog, I always love hearing opinions from other Great Bloggers (good or bad), its a great way to see what we might to better. Thanks, Donna & God Bless

  9. There is a misprint on the printable card. In the directions you say you need 1 egg and then it says to add the eggs. I made the dough and it was very crumbly so I added another egg and it was fine. What is the correct M and M holiday cookie recipe and can you please correct the beautiful printable card? Thanks so much!

  10. Hello,
    Can you clarify how much egg, oil, butter, and vanilla into the recipe? I noticed that you did not include the measurement and it would be hard for people who don’t usually bake to figure it out. Thank you.

  11. Is there any way to get a format with four on a sheet of the M & M Christmas cookies printable? It would save a lot of card stock as I am planning to make quite a few. Thank you!!
