Today we are mixing two things we l.o.v.e. here on the DIY Playbook: cookies and mason jars. Although very different, this delicious project incorporates our favorite little jars with some sweet treats to create an adorable and edible cookie in a jar. It’s a mason jar cookie recipe!
And since we L.O.V.E all of our readers almost as much as we love mason jars and chocolate chip cookies, we are also throwing in a FREE Printable for you to create your own jar of warm and gooey love!
These little tags are the perfect reminder of the importance of celebrating LOVE! Who doesn’t need a little extra reminder of how truly special that four letter word really is every once in a while? Thanksgiving, the holiday season, a wedding shower, or just because, this free printable has you covered.

Once you have the tags ready, it’s time for the real fun…. filling those jars.
Fill up the Mason Jars
Rookie Tip: When filling up your large mason jars (we used these ones) with these ingredients, it’s important that you PACK each layer down as much as you can (you can use a small ladle in order to do this). Without packing the ingredients down, the jar will not be big enough to fit all of the chocolate chips and M&M’s at the end. We also used a napkin wrapped around a spatula to wipe the inside of the jar after we added the flour. The flour added some unwanted “flour residue” and the napkin spatula combo was the ticket in making sure that unwanted “fog” didn’t affect the clarity of the other layers.
