I don’t mean to scare you, but tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Once you finish eating your pie and go to sleep, you will wake up in the Christmas Season. I don’t go shopping for Black Friday (I am finished shopping) but I spend the day decorating and wrapping presents. It is also time to start thinking about all those teachers/bus driver presents you have coming up.
One of my favorite gifts to give is cake mix cookies in a jar, and here is an example of that with M&M’s® Hot Chocolate Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Cookies! There is also Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Holiday Cake Mix has green & red candies that is great to use for this! You can save $1.00 on ANY TWO (2) M&M’s® Chocolate Candies, 8 oz or larger with this coupon, making now the best time to stock up on supplies, all of which I found at Walmart!
The reason these make such a great an easy gift is because not only do the M&M’s® look pretty sitting above the cake mix, but the recipient only needs to add two ingredients to create delicious cookies. I made a sample set yesterday using M&M’s® White Peppermint and Pillsbury™ Funfetti® just to double check my recipe and measurements, and they went in record time. If you don’t tell anyone that these cookies are not made from scratch they would never know!
Like I mentioned, presenting them in a mason jar as a gift is simple. I pour the Pillsbury™ Funfetti® into the bottom of a quart mason jar, then top with half a cup of M&M’s® Holiday Milk Chocolate and then half a cup of the specialty type which in this case is M&M’s® Hot Chocolate. I like the old fashioned hand written recipes, so i attach the instructions on a note card with a pretty ribbon, and BAM instant gift complete in under 5 minutes! Something that would also take under 5 minutes would be voting for your favorite holiday recipe in the widget below; by voting on your favorite photo, you are entered in a drawing to win one of eight KitchenAid® mixers!
What goes perfectly with these M&M’s® Hot Chocolate Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Cookies? Milk of course! Great Value milk is always a must buy when shopping at Walmart, even when I am not baking cookies. Unfortunately not everyone can afford milk even in your community, yet it is not usually donated to Food Banks even though it is needed for the essential nutrients and protien,The Great American Milk Drive will deliver a gallon of milk to a family in your community for a small donation through this website. ALSO, Walmart is donating up to a gallon of milk every time someone purchases 2 bags of M&M’s® at Walmart (9.4 oz bags or larger).
