Betty Crocker Cookie Mix


  • 1
    pouch Betty Crocker™ peanut butter cookie mix
  • 1
    cup chocolate chips (6 oz) or finely chopped chocolate-covered peanut butter cup candies
  • 1
    quart-size canning jar
  • 2
    to 3 cups miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits


  • 1
    In large bowl, mix cookie mix and chocolate chips. Spoon into jar.
  • 2
    Top with baking bits. Screw on lid.
  • 3
    Decorate jar with small round of fabric; tie ribbon into bow.
  • 4
    Attach card that reads: "Monster Cookie Mix—Heat oven to 350°F. Add 1 stick softened butter and 1 egg to contents of this jar. Roll into large balls; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.”

  • Make It Easy—Instead of peanut butter cookie mix and added chocolate chips, try using Betty Crocker® chocolate chip cookie mix.
  • Homemade Goodness—Don’t worry about little imperfections of this gift! A handwritten note or slightly uneven layer of cookie mix makes it all the more personal!
