My family and I love to make homemade M&M cookies over the holidays. So with that being said, I’m delighted to share this recipe for making M&M cookie mix recipe because we’ve pretty much perfected it already thanks to countless “trial runs” over the past few months.
It’s actually quite similar to some of the other holiday themed “in a jar” style recipes that we’ve been sharing as of late. You’ll be layering in certain ingredients according to the instructions listed below to give your jar an aesthetically appealing look before decorating it with your favorite holiday decorations. You can even print off the recipe on card stock to attach to the jar if you want. As an added bonus, the jar of M&M cookie mix also doubles as a terrific gift idea for any of your loved ones who have a sweet tooth for cookies.
