I’m sure you’ve seen these cute mason jar cookies mixes before. Every time I see them I think about what a cute gift they would make, especially for people that like treats but maybe don’t bake a lot. Just about everything they need is right in the jar – they just need to add butter and eggs and throw them in the oven. I have a favourite chocolate chip recipe that I’ve used for years and years. I’ve had it so long that I really have no idea where it came from. However, when I was putting these together I happened to look at the recipe on the back of the Chipits bag and noticed they were very similar. I wasn’t sure if I was going to have to modify the recipe to make it fit in the jar but it actually fit perfectly!
Mason Jar Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
Fills one 1 litre mason jar (makes about 3 dozen cookies)
- 2 1/2 cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup of brown sugar (packed)
- 3/4 cup of white sugar
- 1 to 1 1/4 cups of Chipits chocolate chips (depends on how packed down your other ingredients are in the jar)
- 1 litre mason jar
Mix the flour, baking soda and salt together. Put the flour mixture in the bottom of the jar and shake to help it settle and remove and gaps.
Next put in the brown sugar and pack it down tightly.
Now put in the white sugar and finally the chocolate chips. If you can fit in more than 1 cup of chocolate chips go for it. Just fill it to the top of the jar.
Put on the lid and decorate as desired. Make sure you include the baking instructions:
I printed mine out on full sheet label paper and stuck them to the back of some cute Christmas wine bottle tags I found at the dollar store. You could also print them out on plain paper and glue or use double sided tape to stick them right to the jar. I have included a printable page for you.
