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)
– 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. 😉
I think we’ll be making these for the kiddos’ teachers too. 🙂

Beautiful, but your label says M & M Christmas Cookies.
I can’t get the printable for the easter cookie jar 🙁 Nothing happens when I click on “here”. Thanks.
I can’t get the label either. Just script appears when I click the “here” connection.
Not sure why it’s doing that. I just checked and it’s showing up for me, but here is a link to the PDF. https://lilluna.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Easter-Cookie-Jar-Gift-FINAL.pdf
Let me know if that works. 🙂
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!
Weird. Can you shoot me an email and I’ll send it to you?
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!
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!
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. 🙁
This happened to us as well, we tried adding a little milk? Didn’t quite Work
I cant get the free PRINTABLEs
Did you enter your information to get the free printables?
Hello, we made this recipe and it didn’t really work out very well. It was very crumbly and not moist at all?
Hmmm..not sure why? I am sorry. Thank you for trying them 🙂
None of the printables are active to download
Sorry about that! I will work on getting those printables active. Here is a link to the cookie jar label for you – Easter Cookie Jar Label
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.
I’m sorry the cookies didn’t turn out as you would have hoped. Thanks so much for trying it!
Good day , i cant seem to get the printable , will you please assist me. Thanx
