This was a super easy and quick little project and it looked so festive. Plus when we mixed up the cookies, they were ridiculously delicious.
If you want to make your own, you’ll need
- 1 8-ounce mason jar
- 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 10 Tablespoons flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- About 40 M&M’s® Red Velvet
- A small bag for the M&M’s®
- Paper or cardstock
- Hole Punch
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Beat together 2 Tablespoons butter and 2 Tablespoons shortening.
Pour the flour mixture at the top of the jar into a bowl and set aside.
Add the sugars to the butter mixture and beat until smooth. Add 1 egg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
Add the flour mixture and beat just until combined.
Scoop into balls on a cookie sheet and press 4-5 M&M’s® Red Velvet over the top of each ball.
Bake for 10-11 minutes or until the edges are set.
Put the M&M’s® Red Velvet in the little bag and then punch a hole through both the recipe card and the bag and string the ribbon through them both.
Tie the ribbon around the jar and take it to some lucky friends!
