Most of the following recipes require a quart jar, large or small mouth opening. I
find though a large mouth works easier to get the ingredients in.
Besides a quart jar with lids, you will need a large rubber band. A piece of
material 8x8 square. Ribbon to decorate. After filling the jars, place the material
on the lid and put the rubber band around it to secure it in place. Tie with
decorative ribbon and tie the recipe card to the ribbon for the directions on how
to bake the ingredients. If you have a printer, print out the tag onto a colorful
piece of paper or onto adhesive paper.
When putting in the ingredients, make sure to pack them down tightly. If you have
loose ingredients like nuts, M&M, raisins, etc. make sure they are the next
ingredient on top of packed brown sugar. If the next layer is to be white sugar or
flour, the white sugar or flour will seep through the nuts, M&M, etc some what.
Also when using cocoa, wipe inside of jar before adding another ingredient to keep
jar looking nice. Have fun and give the filled jar to a friend!
