Cookie jars seem like a great wedding favor right? Yeah, they are.
So why didn’t anybody take them?
A jar of cookie mix is sitting in front of you and you leave it? Who does that?
Making these jars took a ton of hard work.
36 canning jars
14 bags of semi-sweet chocolate chips
16 bags of Easter M&Ms (thank goodness they went on sale at CVS)
2 bags of granulated sugar
7 bags of brown sugar
3 canisters of oats
oh, a little more than half a 15 lb. bag of flour
It also took:
One lame joke at the supermarket when buying 14 bags of chocolate chips and 9 bags of sugar, “I have a major sweet tooth”. Followed by an unresponsive clerk. I think she may have been a zombie. I’ve heard they don’t like jokes.
About 4 hours worth of assembly.
Only to make these delicious cookies.
These delicious treats were inspired by Bakerella.
Hers look better than mine. I heard she’s a professional baker or something. She may even have an awesome book that I have.
