Total Time 20 mins


  • Mason Jar
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Baking Sheet
  • Silicone Baking Mat
  • Cookie Scoop


For the Jar Mix

  • 14 Tbsp Flour ½ Cup + 6 Tbsp
  • ½ Tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ Tsp Baking Soda
  • 6 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • ¼ Cup White Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • ¾ Cup Chopped Peppermint Bark
  • 1 Pinch Salt

To Make and Bake

  • 6 Tbsp Butter Softened or Melted
  • 1 Egg Lightly Beaten
  • ½ Tsp Vanilla Extract


To Assemble a Jar

  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add this mixture to the jar and lightly pack it down.
  • Add half of the brown sugar and pack it down, as a divider layer.
  • Add half of the white sugar, spread, and pack it down.
  • Repeat with the other halves.
  • Add the cocoa powder, then pack in as much peppermint bark as you can fit. Add the lid and screw it tight, and you're ready to mail it!

To Make and Bake

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Empty the jar mix into a mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Make sure to break up any clumps of brown sugar.
  • Add in the vanilla, egg, and butter, and stir to mix into dough.
  • Scoop the dough in tablespoon-sized balls. You should be able to make between 15 and 20 cookies, depending on the size of your scoops.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, put the cookie dough balls on it, and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Let the cookies cool on a baking sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring, or eating hot. Enjoy!


Note: You can rearrange the layers as much as you like. I just recommend keeping something other than flour or cocoa powder on top, to avoid a mess when the jar is opened.
