When I think of the winter holidays, there are a lot of things that come to mind. The beautiful sights, the sounds of holiday music and my favorite, the scents of the season. Between you and me, pumpkin is a bit overrated. For me, Thanksgiving and Christmas is all about the scents of cookies, especially gingerbread cookies. They’ve got this perfect mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice. In November and December, there’s almost always something going on that smells like gingerbread whether that be a scented candle, gingerbread cookies or working on our annual gingerbread house.

This year I thought it would be fun to work with the kids in the kitchen on a gingerbread project that involves something extra … Gingerbread M&M’s!

Cookie mix jars make wonderful gifts and with these special M&M’s, you can make a gingerbread cookie mix gift that’s doubly delicious. Walmart carries everything you need for these including the mason jars, gingerbread cookie cutters, gift tags, ribbon, holiday colored fabric, gingerbread cookie mix and of course, the Gingerbread M&M’s.

The first thing you’ll want to do is divide a 17.5 oz bag of gingerbread cookie mix in half and add it to two mason jars. To keep the cookie mix and M&M’s separate, cut a small circle of wax paper to place between them. You can fill the top of the jars up with as many Gingerbread M&M’s as you can squeeze in.

Next, cut two circles of fabric, with a diameter of about 4 inches wider than the lids. Place those over the lid and screw the cap over the fabric.

Inside the gift tags you can add this recipe for the recipient.

To make these extra special, slide a gingerbread cookie cutter and gift tag over the ribbon. Tie the ribbon around the mason jar cap.
