Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio Recipe in a Jar

Not too long ago, a friend of mine reminded me of "Recipes in a Jar". For those of you who are not familiar with it, this is where you layer the dry ingredients of a recipe in a jar and seal it. You then include a tag or card detailing the wet ingredients needed as well as any directions needed for the recipe. This is a fun way to share food because it's easy to transport and can also be set aside for later without worrying about it going bad.

At our Club Meeting last week, I shared a recipe jar with ingredients for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars. Our Hostess this month Debby is someone who entertains often - this is one busy lady! She bakes often so I knew she would enjoy this idea. Our stampers liked this idea, too - it's a tasty and affordable  gift to have on-hand for teachers, neighbors and anyone nice enough to host a gathering. This idea is not limited to desserts; a quick search on-line will share ideas for soups, seasonings, dips and more.

Here's the postcard sized tag included with Debby's jar. It began as a postcard template included in Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio. The front of the card was not edited at all. On the back, I added text to include the additional ingredients needed as well as the baking instructions.

Now, sorry for the long post but I have a confession to make. Usually all of the dry ingredients go in the jar and the cook adds the wet ingredients. My jar was a little too small so I wasn't able to fit all of the flour into it…. yikes. So if you look at the recipe side of the post card you will see an additional 1 cup of flour…. embarrassing. But Debby is a nice lady so she forgave me. :)

Project Notes: Recipe from Gifts in a Jar (Bars and Brownies), Recipes to make your own gifts
The dry ingredients to layer in the jar are:
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. chocolate chips
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt

then the recipient adds:
1 c. butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 t. vanilla
1 c. creamy peanut butter

Directions listed on card above. Remember - the flour listed on the card should have been in the jar. The recipe only uses 2 cups - don't add a third!
