Candy Cane Cookies in a Jar {101 Days of Christmas at}

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.

These 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


In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and sea salt.

In a quart jar, layer half of the flour mixture, half of the sugar and half of 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:

In a large bowl, mix 1 stick of butter (softened), 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1 egg. 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.
