And once the dry ingredients are included in the jar, half the fun is decorating the outside!  Include the recipe on the jar so that your recipient can have fun putting together the ingredients and creating a homemade snack.

      Hi Hillary!

      Stored in a cool dry place, these should last about 6 months!
