I substituted Holiday Raic Krispies for the corn flakes in this recipe, and all the kids in our kids club loved them, and the Mom's loved the layered jars as well!!

Maybe I did something wrong, but mine turned out awful. They spread too thin and I had a tough time getting them off the cookie sheet. I did use quick oats instead of rolled. Could that be the difference? And the recipe simply said corn flakes. Was I supposed to crush them first. If I try again, I'll make these two changes and report back.

I made up these jars last Christmas for my husband to give his co-workers. I substituted holiday (red & green) M&M's for the choc. chips and they really were beautiful. They take some time to put together, but they are well worth the effort...and they're yummy too.

I received a jar of this mix from some friends of ours.Having never made cookies from a jar, I was worried about the dryness of the finished dough, but they turned out GREAT! I absolutely LOVE the flavor and texture of these cookies! I couldn't stop eating them! I did find the brown sugar was a little hard when I emptied out the jar, but I just broke it up between my fingers. I'll be making this recipe for myself and for gifts.

We made this as a 4H project, very easy and fun. The kids decorated the jar lids with fabric and raffia. We had the cookies for a snack. We had great reviews from parents and friends who received them as gifts.
