Cookies in a Jar Favors

Hi friends!  Today I wanted to share with you a little DIY I made for my bridal shower favors, cookies in a jar!  These goodies are fairly quick to assemble and make the cutest gift or favor for any gathering.  Here are the items you will need:

  1. Jars – I used these 32 oz mason jars from Hobby Lobby which worked out perfectly!
  2. All-purpose flour
  3. Baking soda
  4. White sugar
  5. Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  6. Brown sugar
  7. Pretty ribbon of your choice
  8. Stock paper in the color of your choice to print out the directions to make the cookies.

There’s a few cookie in a jar recipes out there, I used Julia’s Best Ever Chocolate Cookies via

Directions: Mix the flour, baking soda, white sugar and chocolate chips.  Put 1/2 of the mixture into the jar, and pack down.  Place the 1/2 cup of brown sugar in next, making sure to firmly pack.  Then place the remaining mixture on top and seal with a lid.

I printed out the directions on stock paper and attached them through the ribbon.  They read as follows: Empty contents of jar into a large bowl. In separate bowl combine 3/4 cup of butter, 1 1/2 eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until creamy. Add to dry mixture. Drop by tablespoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake in a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 8 to 10 minutes.

Finished product!  They were a huge hit, and I also heard the cookies were delicious!

Have a fabulous day!
