An Easy, Yummy Gift

You guys know I’m a little obsessed with easy, quick and inexpensive gift ideas. Really, I am!! I think it’s mostly because being in a large family I feel like there are birthdays every week that need to be recognized and with 5 kids of my own I really need to have quick and cheap ideas on hand for these special days.

One of my favorite “go-to” gifts are my Cookie Jar Gifts. They’re simple, quick and can be mass produced very easily. I realized I had yet to make one for Valentine’s so I decided it was a good time to do that (and yes you better believe I’ll make sure to hit all the holidays eventually).

I knew these would be perfect for my neighbors and even the sisters I visit teach at church. My daughter, Lily, also said her teacher would love one so we’ll probably make her one for a simple Valentine’s day treat. 😉

Not only are these Jar Gifts super cute, but they also help make super delicious cookies. And what’s better than having almost all the ingredients taken care of when you’re craving a sweet treat?!

Here is what you’ll need to make a Valentine’s Cookie Jar Gift:

  • Quart Jar
  • Cookie Ingredients (found below)
  • Printable
  • Scissors
  • Twine/Ribbon
  • Scrapbook Paper


1. Clean your jars and 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 OR 2/3 chopped M&Ms.
  • Top off with 2/3 cup Valentine’s M&Ms.

3. From there you will need to download the Cookie Jar label.

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

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

I also added some scrapbook paper on top. Easy!

Instead of using milk chocolate chips, you could also do a layer of chopped M&Ms. You would need about 2/3 cup before topping it off with 2/3 cup whole M&Ms. 😉

  1. I gave this to my nieghbor and she loved it and I am LDS too I teach sunbeams and I gave it to my kids that’s are in my class and my daughter that is in Junior high she gave one to her 7 teachers she gave them it too and they loved it and I love M&M cookies

  2. The listed directions calls for 2/3 cup choc chips and 2/3 cup valentine M&M’s but the printout for the front of the jar lists 2/3 cup chopped m&m’s and 2/3 cup whole m&m’s. Im sure it doesnt matter which you follow it will taste great but just wanted to point out the typo.

    1. Thanks for the note. It’s actually because you can use 2/3 cup chopped M&Ms OR 2/3 cup chocolate chips. I fixed it in the recipe notes. 😉

      1. I did but when I press “Yes, i want them” it says the account is cancelled and cannot accept subscribers.

        is there any other way i should try?

        Thanks so much!

  3. My cookies are extremely crumbly and won’t form a solid dough ball. I’m not sure what happened but I gave these as gifts for Valentine’s Day and I’ll be really sad if they do the same thing to my friends. Please let me know how I can fix this or what I did wrong.

    1. It is so hard to know, since I am not there. There could be few different reasons..not enough fat or too much dry ingredients. I also find ingredients that aren’t fresh may cause that. Hope that helps 🙂
