Mason Jar Cookie Recipes: Chewy Chocolate Cookies with Gooey Chocolate Chips

Chocolate Cookie Recipe in a Jar beside chewy chocolate chip cookies...This chocolate cookie recipe in a jar makes the best chocolate chocolate chip cookies. A friend of mine even said they're better than traditional chocolate chip cookies (and I always make extra of this particular cookie mix because my own family asks for it often)!

This cookie mix makes around 24 "all-chocolate" chewy chocolate chip cookies that turn out brown, buttery and chocolaty with pockets of gooey melted chocolate throughout.

The surprising thing about these treats is that they're not over the top chocolaty, they're just right.

When picking up ingredients for this chocolate cookie recipe (sure to satisfy any chocolate craving imaginable) be sure to use semi sweet chocolate chips not milk chocolate.

Chocolate Cookie Recipe

To get started making this chocolate chocolate chip cookies gift jar, you'll need...

Jar Gift Tools and Materials:

  • Mason Jar: wide mouth, 1 quart (or 1 liter) size - thoroughly clean and completely dry
  • Lid: Tight fitting with rubber seal - no dents or rust
  • Funnel: Plastic canning funnel or 1 piece of printer paper folded into a funnel
  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • Paper Towel
  • Long Item with Flat Bottom - for compacting layers (tart tamper, tall spice container, slender wine glass)
  • Decorative Items - fabric, ribbon, gift tag materials etc.
  • Recipe Card - make one yourself or print this one

Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies...Cookie Mix Ingredients:

  • 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?

How to Make Chocolate Cookie Recipe Jar Gift Mix:

  • 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

Presentation Matters

For a simple presentation, place a 7 inch round of fabric over the top. Secure with rubber band. Wrap raffia or ribbon around cloth, covering up the rubber band and tie in 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.
