    I substituted Holiday Raic Krispies for the corn flakes in this recipe, and all the kids in our kids club loved them, and the Mom's loved the layered jars as well!!  -  05 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made up these jars last Christmas for my husband to give his co-workers. I substituted holiday (red & green) M&M's for the choc. chips and they really were beautiful. They take some time to put together, but they are well worth the effort...and they're yummy too.  -  02 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I received a jar of this mix from some friends of ours.Having never made cookies from a jar, I was worried about the dryness of the finished dough, but they turned out GREAT! I absolutely LOVE the flavor and texture of these cookies! I couldn't stop eating them! I did find the brown sugar was a little hard when I emptied out the jar, but I just broke it up between my fingers. I'll be making this recipe for myself and for gifts.  -  27 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
