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.
