Spring M&M Cookie Mix in a Jar

Hello, Spring!  It's gorgeous here in San Diego, and I hope it is wherever you are too.  I love cute little jar mixes and think they make a great little gift.  Yesterday was quite an eventful day here at Gallamore West {see me on Instagram} so we brought a special batch of this Spring M&M Cookie Mix in a Jar to a very sweet teacher at our boys' elementary school this morning as a thank you gift.


Here's all you need for the jar ingredients:


1/2 cup M&Ms
3/4 cup brown sugar {not packed} 
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup white sugar
A few more M&Ms to sprinkle on top 

Layer your ingredients in the jar: M&Ms on the bottom, then slowly use a spoon to add the flour, top it with the baking soda, salt, then the white sugar.  Spoon in the unpacked brown sugar, then sprinkle more M&Ms on top.  

Ingredients for making the cookies- be sure to add these with your jar!  I just hand wrote them on the back of my cute Lauren McKinsey tag, but I originally got this recipe from Living Locurto- it's a Halloween Cookie Mix recipe there with a cute free Halloween printable.

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
Empty contents of the jar into a large bowl.  Add in the butter, using your hands to mix well.  In a separate bowl, mix the egg & vanilla together then add to cookie mixture and combine well.  Batter will be crumbly.  Shape into 1" balls and bake at 350 degrees for 10-14 minutes until the edges are just browned.  

If you use these same jars I bought at Target, you'll get two jars worth of mix from the recipe above, so you'll have to cut in half all of the add-ins also. 


I've made these before as favors for our son Jake's Red Scooter Birthday Party and the big mason jars are perfect for a whole batch of these.  But I couldn't resist the adorable vintage look of these jars at Target right now. 


I'm linking up my Spring M&M Cookie Mix in a Jar to Tatertots & Jello.  Have a great weekend! xoxo
