Easter Cookie Jar Gift

CUTE Easter Cookie Jar Gift - tutorial and free tags on { lilluna.com } A fun gift for those that love to bake!!

I know it’s not even St. Patrick’s Day yet, but I know many of you are already looking for Easter ideas. I know I am at least. 😉

Today’s idea is a super cute and simple gift idea perfect for teachers, neighbors, friends and family for Easter. I figured since I’ve shared Cookie Jar Gifts for almost every holiday so far, I should also do one for Easter. That’s right – I’m always looking for easy gift ideas to give to neighbors and the sisters I visit teach at church, and this gift is perfect. From start to finish it took only about 10 minutes total of time (spaced out of course because of spray painting the lid), but it was so easy and turned out so cute.

If you’d like to make this Easter Cookie Jar gift for your loved ones and friends, then this is what you’ll need:


– Quart Jar

– Cookie Ingredients (found below)

– Printable (found below)

– Scissors

– Twine/Ribbon

– Scrapbook Paper


1. Clean your jars and let dry completely.

**If you want to paint your lid, spray paint it and let dry. I also added a think layer of Spray Polyurethane as well. Let dry completely.

2. Fill your jars. Start with 1 ½ cups flour, ½ tsp. baking soda, 1/s tsp. baking powder, ½ tsp. salt.

Then add ½ cup brown sugar followed by ½ cup sugar.

Then add 2/3 cup milk chocolate chips.

Top off with 2/3 cup Easter M&Ms.

3. From there you will need to download the label – at the bottom of the post.

 I suggest printing onto cardstock so the recipe can be more durable for later use.

4. Cut out and tape onto your jar (or use Glue Dots) and then tie some twine or ribbon around the top.


Simple and cute!! I know you can find gifts like these already made, but they are usually more expensive and not as cute. 😉

  1. I can’t get the printable for the easter cookie jar 🙁 Nothing happens when I click on “here”. Thanks.

      1. Still didn’t work. Just a page of letters and symbols shows. Thanks for trying though. It’s so cute and I hate to miss out on printing it!

  2. Could you please duplicate the Easter cookie label on the page so at least four labels could be printed on one sheet? I hate to waste the cardstock.
    Love this idea – I will share with my friends. Thanks!

  3. Hi, do you have a picture of just the label for the M&M Easter Cookies jar? That way the ribbon around the jar in the photo won’t show. I love your pictures and want to thank you for offering them for free for us to print!

  4. I thought I would try making this by following the exact directions as if I were dumping a jar into the already creamed butter, eggs, oil, and vanilla. The ingredients do not mix together at all. You end up with the consistency of a giant bowl full of brown sugar with MMs and chocolate chips throughout. I tried my hardest with my hand to squeeze together little balls to put on a cookie sheet. I was able to get them to hold together sonewhat, but with difficulty. I am glad I tried this first as it would be embarrassing to give as a gift. The one jar I put together is so beautiful, but it is just not the same as when you combine with your mixer all of the ingredients together step-by-step. I tried baking the ones I rolled together as directed and they did not turn out. Sorry to report that I would not recommend these. The gift is beautiful, but it would be a disappointment to your friend. 🙁

  5. Hello, we made this recipe and it didn’t really work out very well. It was very crumbly and not moist at all?

  6. I have to say I was pretty disappointed. I followed the directions/measurements, and the dough would not hold. Milk was required to be added, just in order to get them to hold in some form. They did turn out ok… but I don’t recommend this as a gift to someone. It is a lovely idea though, just needs some tweaking.
