Who’s in the mood to sip, dip and snuggle? A yummy chocolate chip cookie recipe and craft!

Who’s in the mood to sip, dip and snuggle?
It’s time to make and bake chocolate chip cookies!
Kind of...
The nifty part, there’s a kitchen craft involved! & it's actually
the perfect holiday gift

This season is filled with gatherings aplenty, and no guest likes to arrive at the party empty-handed…

As Fall is the start of the busy season- with football starting up, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, the list goes on.
Keeping up with regular life schedules and adding in the holidays, it can get pretty hectic!

Presenting to you a thoughtful and delicious cookie jar craft!

So easy! Just add butter and love! (and a few other ingredients which are listed below.)


The How-To:

Your local craft store, grocery market, or even the dollar store should have most of the items needed. And for some, you may find some of the items already in your kitchen cabinets!


Craft Supplies & Adorning the Jar 

  • Large jar with a screw-on lid.
  • Pretty yarn or ribbon
  • Label stickers big enough to write on 
  • Markers
    • I have a printer that allows me to print on labels already at home. If you do too you could opt to print your labels as well. My calligraphy skills are, well, not great. Personal preference! 
    •  As you can see in my example image, I printed the instructions directly onto a tag and hung that around the jar. The ingredients I printed on a sticker and put onto the side. Then I handwrote the gift-receivers name, Abby in this case, on the jar for a personal touch. 

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose baking flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed.
  • 2 ¼ cups chocolate chips, flavor depending on preference.
  • 6 tbsp granulated white sugar.
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 

It’s all about layers this season!

  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together your flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Scoop the mixture into your jar and use something to kind of smoosh it down until it’s compact-ish. 
  •  Add brown sugar to the jar as the second layer, and smoosh that down too.
  • Then add your white sugar, smoosh down again.
  • Top off the layers with the chocolate chips

 

Ingredients needed when baking // Add to instruction tags!

  • Add one large egg 
  • Add ½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature, not melted or even softened! This is so important!

Preheat oven to 350°F. Transfer contents of the jar to a large mixing bowl and mix well.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. You may need a second baking sheet depending on how large you making the dough balls. Spray with non-stick baking spray.

Add in the contents of the jar to a large mixing bowl and mix well. 

I recommend separating the chocolate chips and adding them back in at the end.

Mix in the butter and the large egg using an electric mixer at medium speed. Be careful not to over mix, just until the dough is smooth. This should take about two minutes, give or take. 

If you separated the chocolate chips, you can now add them back in. I recommend using a wooden spoon and folding them into the dough.


Then you’re ready to place the dough onto the baking sheets! Roll into little balls and lightly press down on them with your thumb.

Small cookies take about 8-10 minutes to bake and large cookies should take about 10- 13 minutes. Time also depends on ‘squishy-ness’ preference.


Grab a cold glass of milk & sip, dip, and snuggle while enjoying these super yummy chocolate chip cookies! 


These adorable cookie jars make the perfect quick, easy, affordable and thoughtful gift for any occasion!

We would love to see!
