Recipe by Lisa
"M and M's Cookie mix in a jar with tag attached with directions on how to prepare the mix. These make wonderful gifts to give any time of year and also for wedding favors, hostess gifts, baby showers or take to a cookie exchange and make sure to bake some up so people know what they taste like to. Store in a cool dry place away from a heat source so condensation and clumping does not occur. Enjoy!"

1 1/4 cups

candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
I found this to be too dry. I added 2 Tablespoons of milk and it did the trick. Also the M & M's need to be placed on the top for the layering in a jar because the sugar seeps through the candies. A good cookie.
I made this recipe for my co-workers this year. It was the most disappointing and embarrassing gift I have ever given. The ingredients that you layer are all white, with the exception of the M & M's. This means that all of the flour and sugar mixtures take over the one colorful part of this mix. The final product was very disappointing to look at but the cookies were tasty and the children of my co-workers really enjoyed them.
I haven't baked the cookies but I was very disappointed with the way the ingredients looked layered in the jar - first of all too many white ingredients and when you layer the candies under the flour, the flour falls down between the candies so you can not even see what little colour there was - also I bought enough ingredients to make 12 jars - it turned out to be very expensive! $25.00 for the candy coated chocolate! Very disappointing.
The recipe is super simple which I love and it looks great in the jar. I made all the Cookie Mix in a Jar recipes and this is the only one my family wasn't crazy over.
Dough was so dry, I had to add a tablespoon of milk. Cookies were a little tastless and dry
I really enjoyed making these for family & friends & coworkers...Went over very well and everyone enjoyed them...I used the holiday m&m's (Green & Red) and it made a nice effect...These cookies are yummy..my husband prefers these over choc. chip now..Thanks alot!! Happy Holidays! :)
These cookies were too dry & crunchy, with not much flavor. I think they need more butter or something; dough was very stiff & dry.
I am sorry but these cookies turned out terribly. I was going to make jars of these cookies to give to friends as gifts. I am glad I tried the recipe out ahead of time because now I know I would have been embarrased. Now I have time to get another recipe.
