    There are some good ones. I always give this type of gift and bake during the holidays. It is a money saver and still allows people to know that you are thinking of them without breaking the bank.

    I started making gifts in a jar several years ago from a book that I still have and cherish. But, looking through the Zaar members ideas from the links, has opened a whole box of worms! I am saving several as well.

    I HEART you Brandess!! This is why I stumbled upon 'Zaar!! Gifts in a jar are soooo cute!! Last year I was at Walmart and they wanted like $5.88 for a cookie mix in a jar!!!!!! I had fun last year making hot cocoa in a jar, smores in a jar, and a really hearty soup mix in a jar! I love home made/hand made gifts!!!! My family even helped me make home made candles w/ a mason jar!! You fill a jar w/ potpourri (sp!) and then put a candle holder at the top of a jar w/ a votive on top and tie raffia around the jar!! They're sooo cute- I used them for my fall wedding!

    thanks for this. i'd love to be able to partake but the shipping charges would get to me. that's why i'm going to rely on other sources this year.

    For those that are interested, I have a killer recipe for Creamy Cocoa Mix (Extra-Large Batch). It's perfect for this time of year. icon_wink.gif

    Sounds good, UC86. Any idea how many of the large packages of pudding mix it would take to make 4 cups?

    One of the reviews said "I used 1/2 vanilla pudding and 1/2 chocolate pudding mix (BTW 4 cups is 7, 4 oz boxes)." I assume the reviewer means the small box...if so, it's 7 boxes. As I recall, the small box is 3.4 ounces and the large box is 5.1 ounces. If so, a large box would be 1-1/2 times the size of the small one. Translation...small boxes: 7; large boxes 4 large boxes plus one small one.

    That said...you'd better measure it out, just to make sure you have 4 cups. icon_redface.gif

    I used to be able to buy pudding mix in an industrial-size package from a local wholesale dealer, so I just measured out 4 cups. Unfortunately, I can't buy it that way anymore. And it's been long enough that I'm not absolutely positive. But I'm pretty sure that the above is correct.

    I did that one year. Everyone got a tin of cookies; tiny jar of mustard and cranberry relish; big jars of cocoa, pancake mix, cookie mix and bridge mix. They also got DVDs of old home movies with their parents in them.

    I thought it was super clever. I think it went over like a lead balloon with the recipients. Hmmmm, they might just be getting close to the same again this year, minus the DVD. lol

    You are killing me!!! I was just telling my GF today, "What I would not give for a Peppermint Hot Chocolate from Starbucks." I hate SB, but my boss, last year brought me one of those and I was hooked from the first sip. SO creamy and SO chocolaty and SOOOO addictive!
