Wanting to create something special just in time for Easter for a friend or neighbor? This is such a great easy activity to create with the kids. The ingredients are all things you would normally find in the pantry and are inexpensive to purchase. The jar ingredients are: 2 cups all-purpose flour, 3/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 brown sugar and M & M Speckled Eggs.

  1. Purchase a glass jar and matching ribbons. We got ours from Spotlight, it was a 750ml glass jar with clip lid. This was the perfect size to hold all the ingredients nicely. Try and choose a jar with a wide opening as it will be much easier to pour the cookie mixture inside. We swapped out the flour for a gluten free option which worked well too.
  2. Wash and dry the jar thoroughly. Pour all ingredients inside the jar creating a layered effect. We started with the flour first, baking soda, salt, choc chips, sugars and then the speckled eggs.
  3. Close the lid. Tie on your ribbons.
  4. We have created a free printable for the tag and label for you to use at home.
  5. Print, cut and attach your tag and label.
  6. Give the completed jar as a gift or you can use the recipe and bake the cookies yourself.
