Today I’m combining a love of three things: baking, crafting and gifting! When it comes to gifting to friends, I love making something that they can eat AND something that they can keep or re-use. The project gets bonus points if my daughter (who loves to bake) can pitch in and cook with me. This past summer, she improved her reading skills enough that she can now read a recipe. We’ve taken lots of opportunities to try recipes, and one of the easiest ways to start is with a pre-made mix. In this Twine Wrapped Jar, we’re including Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® Brownies made with Pillsbury™ Girl Scout™ Baking Mixes. The Pillsbury™ Girl Scout™ Baking Mixes are simple to make (even for an elementary aged student) and have flavors that everyone already loves (win-win!).
Let me get one point out of the way. Yes, I realize the twine cannot come off the jar. The jar is made for treats, so I’m okay with hand washing just the inside. Use a wide mouth jar to make it easier, or wrap the treats with parchment paper before placing them in the jar to minimize clean up.
- Wide mouth mason jar (Mine is not, but after completing the project, I realized that a wide mouth jar is best.)
- Fabric scrap
- Hot glue gun with hot glue sticks
Wrap the twine around the jar, securing with the hot glue gun. I only glued the first and last strand of each color. The other strands will build on one another.
Bake your treats. The Pillsbury™ Girl Scout™ Thin Mints® Brownies turned out great for our recipient! Pillsbury™ makes other varieties, like Girl Scouts® Caramel & Coconut Blondie Mix and Girl Scouts® Caramel & Coconut Cookie Mix, if you are looking for other flavors.
Fill the jar with the treats and place the lid on top.
Put the fabric piece over the lid, and screw on the outer ring to keep it in place.
