I Am Thankful For You and Cookies Too

Like many families, around this time of year I start planning and over-analyzing holiday Christmas gifts.  In my quest to be a super cool mom, I decided to do an elaborate Thanksgiving Wreath to give Biggie’s teachers.  Well, the bombed (it was really hard).  I decided I wanted to give thanks to the parent pick-up teacher this year instead. She busts her booty every day to get the kids to their cars, while some of the others dilly dally.  I want her to know how much I appreciate her hard work at the end of the day with a small, yet thoughtful gesture….and it cost me less than $5.00!Cookies3


What you will need:

1 Box Cake Mix ($1.00)

2 Boxes Reese’s Pieces Candy ($2.00)

Large Mason Jar ($1.00)

Decorative Ribbon (leftover from my DIY Family sign)

“I Am Thankful For You and Cookies Too!” Label 

Super Hard Instructions:

  1. Pour cake mix into your jar (please pre-wash your jar).
  2. Pour Reese’s on top of cake mix and close the jar tight.
  3. Add ribbon and label for decoration
  4. Add cooking instructions to the back of the label
  •  Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Empty jar into a bowl
  • Add 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • Add 2 eggs
  • Beat and spoon onto baking sheet
  • Bake 12-14 minutes
