I really wouldn't recommend trying this one if it's your 1st time doing the "cookie mix in a jar" thing. I made three different "batches" and still couldn't get the layers to stay separate - the flour layer kept sifting down thru the M&M layer - no matter how much I packed the M&Ms down. Maybe there's a trick??? With that said, I did cook up the recipe & the flavor was nice and the cookie was crisp.
