It’s no secret that I love peppermint treats during the holidays, and this candy cane cookie mix makes a festive and tasty gift in a jar! Layer a few simple ingredients and add this printable cookie tag to share a little bit of holiday cheer. Those to who you gift these candy cane cookies in a jar will be thrilled with the gift.
These candy cane cookies in a jar are especially good for neighbors, teachers, or other acquaintances since you can put together multiple jars assembly-line style!
- 1 1/3 cup flour
- 1 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup candy canes, crushed
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Mix flour, baking soda, and sea salt in a small bowl.
In a quart jar, layer half the flour mixture, half the sugar, and half the chocolate chips. Add the candy canes and then repeat the layers in the opposite order: the remaining chocolate chips, sugar, and flour mixture.
Put the lid on and add the printable cookie tag, which includes these directions:
Mix 1 stick of butter (softened), 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 egg in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients and mix. Drop by the tablespoon onto a cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees F for 9-11 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes, and then move to a cookie rack.
