I made this recipe for my co-workers this year. It was the most disappointing and embarrassing gift I have ever given. The ingredients that you layer are all white, with the exception of the M & M's. This means that all of the flour and sugar mixtures take over the one colorful part of this mix. The final product was very disappointing to look at but the cookies were tasty and the children of my co-workers really enjoyed them.

I haven't baked the cookies but I was very disappointed with the way the ingredients looked layered in the jar - first of all too many white ingredients and when you layer the candies under the flour, the flour falls down between the candies so you can not even see what little colour there was - also I bought enough ingredients to make 12 jars - it turned out to be very expensive! $25.00 for the candy coated chocolate! Very disappointing.

I found this to be too dry. I added 2 Tablespoons of milk and it did the trick. Also the M & M's need to be placed on the top for the layering in a jar because the sugar seeps through the candies. A good cookie.
