Here's an unusual gift idea. After all the cookies and cakes in a jar here's a good tasting, easy gift giving idea. I put the ingredients in a small jar with instructions tied around the lid with a festive ribbon. I always list the ingredients on the back of the instructions. Cook time is just to make the jars of mix, not the making of the actual jambalaya.
I made this for Xmas gifts last year and everyone raved about this soup. While similar to other recipes it has additional ingredients in the mix and in the preparation. I had space left in the jars I was using so I added baggies with Goldfish crackers and directed that they be removed with the macaroni.
This is posted in reponse to a request. I have not made this recipe. It is from the "Gifts for the Cookie Jar" cookbook and is described as a cookie for chocoholics. Times are guesstimates for jar mix preparation.
This is a great gift idea. Quick and cheap too. They're great on a cookie tray if you choose to make them yourself. For smaller gifts, put half the recipe into two pint jars and on the label adjust the yield to 2 dozen and adjust the tag ingredients to half.
As a Nestle employee, I'd encourage non-Americans to use Smarties.:-) We also make red and green ones for the holiday season. (American 'Smarties' are a completely different creature... pressed sugar candy. Don't use them!)
I used Coffee Mate vanilla-flavor powdered creamer and Nestle Nesquick, I am not certain if they sell this in the States, if not use similar products, also plain powdered cream can be used in place of vanilla, but the vanilla is better lol! Here's what to do to give as a gift; divide the mixture between two 1-quart glass jars, seal and decorate as desired, attach a tag with 1 cinnamon stick (if desired for stirring) with the following instruction...For hot cocoa, dissolve 1/3-cup mix in 1 cup (or more) boiling water, stir with cinnamon stick and enjoy!
