This gift idea never gets old, either! You can make lots of flavors. I like to buy bulk mason jars and make a different cookie flavor every time I make them. Friends and family are always excited to get the latest batch. I will add crushed peppermints during the holidays, pink sugar and sprinkles for Valentine’s Day, different creative color and ingredient combos for other occasions.
How To Make M&M Mason Jar Cookies:
Supplies You Need:
- A wide mouth 1 qt mason jar
- 1 1/2 cups M&M’s

Instructions For M&M Mason Jar Cookie Recipe:
Step 1: Wash And Dry Mason Jars
Be sure to wash and dry your mason jar before you start. Pour in the flour, baking soda and salt first. To make sure that the rest of the ingredients fit, you’ll need to pack this layer down using your ice cream scoop. (Don’t worry, once you get the brown sugar in, the packing will get easier!)
Step 2: Add The Rest Of The Ingredients
Now add the brown sugar, white sugar, and M&M’s in that order. After each sugar layer, you’ll want to use your ice cream scoop to pack it down a little more.
Once all the ingredients are in the jar, cut your fabric and ribbon to your desired size and length. We cut the fabric into a 6″ diameter circle. The M&M’s add the color to this mix, so make sure your fabric doesn’t completely cover them up!
Step 3: Decorate And Label
You can place the fabric either underneath the screw top or on top of it. Play around with it to find the look you like best.
Make a label that has the following baking instructions:
- Preheat your oven to 350º.
- Grab your jar and pour the entire contents into a big bowl and mix well.
- Work in 3/4 cup of pacified butter until the mixture is crispy. Use your hands to do this.
- In another bowl, beat 1 tsp vanilla extract with 1 egg. Then mix it into the flour mix.
- Place heaping tablespoons of the mix onto a non-stick cookie sheet (about 2″ apart).
- Bake for 10-14 minutes.
