Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Clean and dry a 1-quart Mason jar and lid. Combine M&M's® and chocolate chips in a small bowl; set aside.

  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Set a jar funnel on top of the Mason jar and pour in flour mixture. Tap on the counter to settle ingredients.

  • Add brown sugar and press down hard, against the edges of the jar and in the middle, to make it as flat as possible. Pour in white sugar and tap to settle. Add oats and press down lightly to flatten. Fill to the top with candy mixture, adding or removing candy if necessary. Seal jar and attach baking instructions on a gift tag.

Cook's Note:

Baking Instructions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Dump contents of the Mason jar into a medium bowl; stir to combine. Add 1/2 cup melted and cooled unsalted butter, 1 large egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir with a wooden spoon until mostly combined, then combine dough with lightly floured hands until uniform consistency all over. Roll dough into balls and place 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet briefly before removing to wire racks. Makes 24 cookies.
