So, I've been thinking about Halloween a lot lately. Mostly because I LOVE it in the worst way (as I've mentioned before) and second because it is only a mere 38 days away. So with that being said, I wanted to think of some cool gifts I could give to my Mommy friends or my visiting teachers. And I came up with this idea.
So you know the basic cookie/brownie in a jar recipe. You know all the dry ingredients are packed into a mason jar and you give it with additional instructions to add the wet ingredients and bake. Well I really wanted to put a cool spin on it. So I made 'Monster Cookie Mix' in a jar instead.
Basically it's all the good stuff you add to monster cookies. (those jumbo, loaded with goodness cookies)
It took me a couple trys to find a jar big enough to hold all these yummy goodies. And I like to fill my monster cookies with a ton of candy. But I managed to find this jar at Hobby Lobby. (I'm sorry to my fellow Canadians) But I'm sure if you check Micheal's they will have something similar.
The "candy" etc that you can add to your cookies is really up to you. Most recipes only call for the chocolate chips and m&m's, but I like to add a couple extras.
As for the little tag. Well I just quickly made this label in photoshop.
When I give these as gifts, I will tie the recipe to the top with ribbon. And since I love you so much, I've attached the label for you to print at home. I've included two color choices. (Just right click to save it to your computer to print)

The other reason I've had Monster's on the brain is because this:
is coming out very, very soon and I have been brainstorming movie night ideas for the last couple weeks. I can't wait. I think it's going to be a fun one!!
