video tutorial

This week, I’ll be sharing a new Christmas Mason Jar dessert everyday (4 in total). Click here to see the M&M Christmas Cookies I shared yesterday.

Above this text is a quick video overview showing the assembly of the mason jar desserts and also the final treat the mason jar will make. Below are the tools I use to make the mason jar desserts.

For these mason jar desserts, I use:

I’ve shared peppermint bark brownie cookies before on my site and they’ve been a HUGE hit with so many of you! Unfortunately the entire recipe didn’t fit in a mason jar, so I adjusted the quantities to make a half batch of these cookies. To make an entire batch of these cookies, follow this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 of 1 full package (18.4 ounce package) fudge brownie mix (9.2 ounces total)
  • 1/2 of 1 full package (3.9 ounce package) instant chocolate fudge pudding mix, dry (so ~2 ounces total)
  • 1/2 of 1 full Ghirardelli peppermint bark bar (or Hershey's peppermint bar), coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons white chocolate chips

ADD IN LATER

  • 2 ounces full-fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk

Instructions

  • IN THE MASON JAR: Using a food scale, separate the brownie mix and pudding mix in exact halves. Add the brownie mix to the jar first (do not pack down). Add in the pudding mix (again don't pack down). Add in the coarsely chopped peppermint bark bar, milk chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips. Seal the mason jar, add a ribbon with a miniature whisk (if desired), and attach the free printable recipe attachment (or the following directions)
  • RECIPE TO ATTACH: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together room temperature cream cheese and room temperature butter until smooth. Beat in 1 large egg yolk. Add the mason jar mix and beat until a very thick dough is formed. Scoop out the cookies onto a parchment lined tray and bake for 13-16 minutes. (Underbake for an awesome brownie texture!)

  1. Hi, I’m going to try this recipe for gifts so I’ll be using the mason jars. However, I noticed in the full recipe, you added flour and that is not in the mason jar recipe. Will that make a difference in the cookies? Thanks so much for the lovely gift idea!!

    1. Hi Stephanie! I tested the half batch a couple of times because it is a bit different than the full batch of these cookies 🙂 So you don’t need the flour in the half batch! Hope that helps and Merry Christmas!
