Homemade Gift Idea!

It’s time to start thinking about last minute gifts. Mason Jar Mixes are an easy gift that can even be made at the last minute. I’m giving you a recipe for Chocolate Chip Muffins, but really you can use any of your favorite recipes.

All you have to do is layer in the dry ingredients into your mason jar and attach a tag with the remaining ingredients listed and the instructions. I recommend that you choose simple recipes with fewer ingredients and mixing steps.

The most important part is to have fun doing it and make it a heartfelt gift.
