CUTE Halloween Cookies Jar Gift Idea. Cookie ingredients including white chocolate m&m's & recipe-so simple & easy!

I’m completely obsessed with Jars right now. I’ve always loved them but now that you can find them at every store in every size, I find myself constantly buying them for projects and gift ideas. It’s just so easy to throw stuff in there and make it a cute gift idea. Don’t you agree?

Last week I shared with you a cut and easy Fall Gift Idea. Since Fall starts next week and Halloween is just around the corner, I knew it would probably be a good idea to make a Halloween Cookies Jar Gift similar to the fall one. You have probably seen most of the retail stores busting out their Halloween items and with them are the White Chocolate Candy Corn M&Ms. They are one of mine and my kiddos’ favorites, so we decided to throw these in the jar and to make a Halloween Styled Print/Recipe to go with them.

Buying all the supplies for this (including the ingredients) would make it out to be around $2 – $3 which isn’t bad at all. We are actually making a Christmas version (stayed tuned in a few months for that one) for a Church Activity because we know how popular inexpensive and cute gift ideas are. This one is just the same. Cute. Easy. and CHEAP!!

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 White Chocolate Candy Corn M&Ms.

Top off with 2/3 cup whole White Chocolate Candy Corn 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.

Love the idea. Wish you had the holiday ones ready now. We have a hundred Snapple bottles that I’ve been wanting to repurpose for holiday gifts.

    Lil' Luna

    I already have the Christmas Tag made. I will try and get it done sooner than later or if you want it in advance, just email me and I can send it to you. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks for stopping by, Jill! You are so sweet! Hope all is well. XO

Crystal

Love this idea!!

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you, Crystal!! ;D

Natalie

Reeses pieces or m&ms? You put chopped and whole m&ms on the printable but in the instructions it says reeses?

    Natalie

    So cute by the way! Totally doing this for gifts, especially in Christmas theme! Just asking if it’s Reeses or m&ms because they both sound delicious and I can’t make the decision myself haha.

      Leslie

      These are very cute. I also had the same question: m&ms or Reese’s?

        Lil' Luna

        It was a typo… they are suppose to be the White Chocolate Candy Corn M&Ms or any Hallowen-colored M&Ms. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Lil' Luna

      I already have the Christmas print made… will try and get it up as soon as Halloween is over. And it’s suppose to be M&Ms… sorry!

Laura Johnston

I love it that you’re loving the jars right now! I haven’t thought about cookies in a jar for Halloween. Creative! This looks super cute.

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks, Laura!! I love cheap and easy gift ideas. This is just one of them! Have you busted out your decor yet?

      Laura Johnston

      No, you would be ashamed. lol. I was just thinking that I need to get my Halloween decorations out! ๐Ÿ™‚

Angie

Can you do this in a pint jar? I have a ton on hand.
Was unsure how to break recipe down. Thanks! Love the idea!!!

Rory

Such an awesome idea!

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you, Rory!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Leann W

I made your Halloween gift in a jar today. So adorable and timely as I needed something like this for a gift! I did have trouble chopping the m&ms though. I put them in the mini processer that I blend my baby food in. It couldn’t chop them. Just chipped edges off the coating. Can you tell me the best way to chop the M&Ms?

    Lil' Luna

    So glad you like the gift Leanna! To chop the M&Ms, I put them in a plastic bag, put them in a cake pan and then took a glass cup and banged it up. They were kind of hard at first but it only took a few pounds before they started breaking up into tiny pieces. ๐Ÿ™‚

Rose

I did this one year at Christmas for all the granddaughters. I also made aprons and called it “Mommy and Me Day.” They loved it.

    Lil' Luna

    Great idea, Rose! I’m sure they loved it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Barbara Graff

Thanks for all of the candy and cookies recipes. I am always looking for new cookies recipes.

GayLeann Hill

Just wondering…the recipe stated one egg yet in the instructions it states “eggs”. When I mixed it up it was so dry that I could not form it to “drop it off a spoon”. I added another egg, which made them spread a little. Not sure if that was what I should have done. ๐Ÿ™‚

Kimberly

Hi, I was wondering if the brown sugar is packed or not? Thank you

    Lil' Luna

    I do usually pat it down a bit. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Kimberly

      I’m sorry, I should’ve been more specific. I meant to say when you are measuring it in the 1/2 cup, is it “packed” brown sugar?

        Lil' Luna

        Yes, sorry – I always pack it in my measuring cup. ๐Ÿ™‚
