Layer the ingredients into the mason jar in the order that is listed.
Gently tap the jar on the counter on a towel so the ingredients will settle or there might not be enough room.
Add tag with directions and ribbon/bow for gift giving.
For the Gift Tag
Print out, cut and tie to the jar for gift giving.
Alternatively, you could use a sticker machine to apply the adhesive to the back of the paper and apply to the side of the jar.
Gift tag has instructions to cook at 350 degres for 15-18 minutes in lined muffin liners. Will make 12 muffins.
Jar Choice: Try to find a quart sized jar that is a little wider/bigger, if that makes sense. You've seen then at Home Goods or TJ Maxx...look at the photo and you'll see. The ingredients fit perfectly so just be aware. :) Over Baking: Don't over bake the muffins so they don't get dry.Storage: Store them in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Mini Muffin Option: Cook for 8-10 minutes and start checking on them. Since they are so much smaller, they will cook very fast! Just like above, you can add different chocolate chips or drizzle chocolate on top! You could even sprinkle them with powdered sugar. Harder Muffins: If the muffins end up hard, it's most likely because the batter was over mixed or they were baked too long. Be sure to just mix the batter until it's barely mixed, and don't go overboard. Also, double-check your oven temperature and make adjustments as needed. The last thing that could happen is that the flour measurement is off. Remember when baking to use a spoon to scoop flour INTO the dry measuring cup and then LEVEL off with the back of a knife. If you SCOOP the flour, you could be adding 2-4 tbsps more flour than you need which make these harder.
