Funnel Cake Mix (gifts in a Jar)

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 4 mins

Looking for something different to give as a "Gift in a Jar"? Why not Funnel Cake Mix? This is from "Gifts in a Jar For Kids" cookbook. Don't forget to attach a gift tag with the mixing and frying directions. (I would never allow a child to deep fry, but mixing the mix and sprinkling powdered sugar is fun!)
