Ingredients: (Recipe for One Cookie Mix in a Jar)
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
- 1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips*
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
*Variation: You can substitute white chocolate chips, butterscotch or toffee in place of bittersweet but be prepared for a slightly sweeter cookie. After careful testing (entirely for my readers, not at all for myself :-) ) I've determined that bittersweet chocolate chips seam to make the best tasting chocolate cookies.
Note: You can also put the brown sugar in followed by the chocolate chips in order to pack as many chips as possible. However, I choose to add brown sugar last since the top layer often gets covered up by fabric or decoration and the chocolate chips make a scrumptious looking layer?
- Stir together flour, baking soda and salt
- Using funnel pour flour mix into 1 quart mason jar
- Press down flour mixture until it won't pack any more
- Wipe insides of jar clean with folded dry paper towel
- Carefully spoon in coco powder and pack layer fully (it takes a bit of tamping to get this fluffy substance packed well)
- Wipe inside of jar with clean and dry paper towel
- Carefully pour in granulated sugar and press layer firmly
- Add chocolate chips a little at a time and press down as needed to get them as tight as possible
- Spoon in brown sugar and press layer firmly
- If there's any space left (doubtful) add a few more chocolate chips)
- Seal with lid and decorate as desired

Wrap raffia or ribbon around the cloth, covering up the rubber band and then tie a bow. Use raffia to attach a wooden spoon if desired. Be sure to attach the chocolate cookie recipe for how to use the cookie mix.
Gift Basket Option: To make this into a cute homemade gift basket, add a cookie jar of some sort, a wooden spoon and matching oven mitts. The cookie jar will come in handy since these are rich cookies not to be eaten all at once.
