Food-in-a-jar gifts

From Sunset Magazine, four different types of cocoa in a jar. From All Recipes, many varieties of cookie mix in a jar. At Angry Chicken, already-baked cake in a jar, which could revolutionize holiday food gift-giving.

Love the food in jar idea...printed some out and will be making them with my daughter tonight. Attaching a gift card to Blockbuster to each one and saying "Merry Christmas: done and wrapped with a box

I am stopping by the Container Store on the way home and making cakes in jars tonight! (Granted it will be store bought cake mix, but I'll make sure the labels are cute and make up for that fact.)

I love cakes in a jar and did these too in November, they were supposed to be "Mitbringsel" (= giveaways) in the advent-time, but not a single one survived, because they were so delicious ...
I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year!

i gave these out for yule last year. the only problem being that i did not have preparation instructions with it, and when people asked how to make the cocoa, i had to suggest 'uhhhhh.. in a pot?'

David said...

Brilliant! I wish I had made some of these.

I have to highly recommend the cranberry hootycreeks recipe on allrecipes. i tried it and it was very good! No wonder it has 5 stars! I also had a hard time finding nice, cheap jars...but I finally found them at Ikea so if anyone else is looking for some! :)

Joanna Schmidt said...

This is such an ingenious idea!

Ellen said...

Oh! I made the "Classic Cocoa" for a friend from the Sunset Magazine recipes. Love it!

Jess said...

Girlrobot, good tips. Ellen, good work!
