“Gifts in a Jar” – Deserts Book 2
Introduction & Ideas
Most of the following recipes require a quart jar, large or small mouth opening. The large mouth works easier to get the ingredients in.
Besides a quart jar with lids, you will need a large rubber band. A piece of material 8X8 square. Ribbon to decorate. After filling the jars, place the material on the lid and put the rubber band around it to secure it in place. Tie with decorative ribbon and tie the recipe card to the ribbon for the directions on how to bake the ingredients. If you have a printer, print out the tag onto a colorful piece or onto adhesive paper.
When putting in the ingredients, make sure to pack them down tightly. If you have loose ingredients like nuts, M&M, raisins…etc. make sure they are the next ingredient on top of packed brown sugar. If the next layer is to be white sugar or flour, the white sugar or flour will seep through the nuts, M&M…etc some what.
Also when using cocoa, wipe inside of jar before adding another ingredient to keep jar looking nice.
Have fun and give the filled jar to a friend!
SOME IDEAS TO MAKE YOUR GIFT OR COFFEE OR COCOA MIX MORE SPECIAL:
Get some plastic spoons and dip the spoon end only in melted chocolate chips; sprinkle with non-pareils or colored sugar sprinkles if desired. Let the chocolate set up. Wrap a spoon or two (depending on whom the gift if for) in a piece of cellophane and tie with a pretty ribbon. Include this with a gift jar of cocoa mix or coffee mix.
Make some homemade biscotti. After biscotti is cooled, dip half of each stick into melted chocolate chips (or melted vanilla candy coating also known as chocolate bark). Let chocolate set up. Wrap and add as you would the above spoons.
Sew up a pretty gift bag from a festive fabric of your favorite holiday calico or even a shiny lame to wrap your gift jar in. Decorate with twigs or silk holly and a pretty ribbon.
Place the wrapped jar of mix in a basket and include the recipe if desired so the recipient may make more when their supply runs out. Add a bag of home made cookies, a couple of coffee mugs and a CD of holiday music.
SOME IDEAS FOR MAKING YOUR GIFT OR COOKIE MIX MORE SPECIAL:
Wrap your jar in a fabric bag as described above, but add a cookie cutter or a wooden spoon to the jar instead of the chocolate spoons. Place the jar in a mixing bowl and add a new digital timer.
