1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup red & green M&M's (change the color to make this for other special occasions or birthdays)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup Cocoa Krispies (regular kind work too, I just like the contrast of the chocolate ones)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
In a one quart widemouthed mason jar add the ingredients in the order listed. Pack them down after each addition using your knuckles or a spatula. Screw on the lid & tie a pretty ribbon around it with a tag. On the tag include the following instructions: "Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream 1/2 cup butter, one teaspoon vanilla, and one egg together in bowl until fluffy. Add contents of the jar & stir until well blended. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes."
You can make your own tags, or here are some I made that you can use. These tags are intended to fold in half (which is why some of the pictures are upside down). You can use the inside to write a little Christmas wish & your name. I suggest printing them on card or cover stock.
*The first time I posted this the tags had a mistake. My chief editor caught it ;) It said to mix the dough in a "lard bowl". Please don't mix anything in bowls made of lard, I don't want any heart disease on my watch. I've corrected the tags so you can go ahead & print the updated version that says "large bowl". Thank you for your cooperation, 10-4.
