Recipe: Halloween Cookies with Colorful Candy Pieces and a Gift Jar Idea

Halloween Cookies with colorful candy pieces make a great gift in a mason jar! 
Halloween Cookies with colorful chocolate candy pieces from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine gave me a cute gift...all the dry ingredients needed to make cookies, packaged in a jar with the baking instructions attached.  All I had to do was add the liquid ingredients.

The jar was so cute, it sat on my counter for a few weeks until we started craving something sweet a few days ago.  I'm sharing with you today the recipe for Halloween Cookies with Colorful Candy Pieces and a fun idea to give the dry ingredients as a gift to someone in a mason jar.

And a fun gift idea using a mason jar! 

Here's the jar with the dry ingredients.  So cute, right?  They're easy to put together too.  Just start layering the dry ingredients into the jar and top it off with the Reese's Pieces Candies. Print out the recipe card below or copy the recipe onto a fun colorful paper.  Tie the recipe onto the mason jar with twine and you have a really cute gift for a friend, a teacher or someone who helped you recently!

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar; packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2/3 cup Reese Pieces
  • 2/3 cup milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Add the butter and both sugars to a medium mixing bowl. With an electric mixer, cream together until smooth and creamy.
  3. Add the egg and beat until incorporated. Then add the vanilla.
