Valentine’s Day Cookie Jar Gift
Valentine’s Cookie Jar Gifts – cute and easy. Great idea for someone who loves to bake!
An easy, delicious gift
You guys know I’m a little obsessed with easy, quick and cheap gift ideas. Really, I am! ! I think it’s mostly because in a large family, I feel like having birthdays every week needs recognition, and with 5 kids myself, I really need to have quick and cheap ideas on hand for these special days.
One of my favorite “go-to” gifts is my cookie jar gift. They are simple, fast and can be easily mass produced. I realize I haven’t made one for Valentine’s yet, so I decided now is a good time to do so (yes, you better believe I’ll make sure all the holidays are over eventually).
I know these would be perfect for my neighbors and even the sisters I visit who teach at church. My daughter Lily also said her teacher would love one so we might make her an easy Valentine’s gift. 😉
Not only are these jar gifts super cute, but they also help make super delicious cookies. When you’re craving something sweet, what could be better than taking care of almost all the ingredients? !
Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make a Valentine’s Day cookie jar gift:
what do you need
- quart jar
- Cookie Ingredients (see below)
- scrapbook paper
How to make
1. Clean your jar and let it 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, then ½ cup sugar.
- Then add 2/3 cup milk chocolate chips or 2/3 chopped M&Ms.
- Complement with 2/3 cup Valentine’s Day M&MS Chocolate Chips.
3. From there you need to download the Cookie Jar tag.
I recommend printing on card stock so the recipe is more durable for later use.
Cut it out and tape it to your jar (or use glue dots), then tie some twine or ribbon around the top.
I also added some scrapbook paper on top. Simple!
Instead of using milk chocolate chips, you can also make a layer of chopped M&Ms. You’ll need about 2/3 cup, then top up with 2/3 cup whole M&Ms. 😉
