A cookie jar mix is a great way to share your favorite cookies. Giving guests everything they need up front, from the ingredients to the recipe, is an incredibly personal way to thank guests. Layering the ingredients and accessorizing the jar is a creative opportunity to incorporate color, style, or any other design element that you love. After the design is settled, it is much easier to add those little details that make a big difference. This wedding favor is a delicious take home treat for guests and it is quite possible that the recipe attached will become a treasured keepsake used many times over.

These cookies just got better with the addition of chocolate candy. We love how the pink M&Ms brings another color opportunity to enhance your wedding scheme. Add a personal message expressing your appreciation or design a self stick label for the jar.

For the love of cookies.
This holiday cookie in a jar was made as a Christmas gift, but it is also the perfect favor for a December wedding. It could also be easily customized to any season with a change of ribbon and blissful wedding message. Attaching a heart handled whisk, measuring spoon, or cookie cutter only adds to the creativity.
Fresh cookie idea.
For a fresh updated twist, add burlap to your cookie jar. You can then liven it up with vivid bright colors or subtle touches of color in ribbons or fabric.
