I have a fun gift idea for you today. This waffle mix gift set was inspired by One Good Thing by Jillee. She had a post on gifts in these glass jars and I decided to create this waffle mix version and I gave them out last year at Christmas.
It all started with converting one of my favorite waffle recipes into a mix. I used my weekday waffles and then also created a chocolate version which I have already shared the recipe with you for. All you have to do is mix the dry ingredients together and place them in a container. I used Ziploc bags. You can find the weekday waffles and weekday chocolate waffles to make the mix at the links I provided. The printable instructions is made to go with these recipes.
Then a created a card listing the remaining ingredients that need to be added to the mix along with the instructions. I included one regular mix and one chocolate mix with my gift set. I created a printable of the recipe card for you all and included it at the bottom of the post.
You can get the jars that I put the items in at Walmart or Amazon. They come in 2 sizes and I used the largest 2 gallon sized one. The other size is a 1 gallon size. These jars are a great gift after to store items in or also work great as a punch bowl. I also purchased ribbon from Walmart to decorate the jars with. To go with the waffle mix, I included the following items in the jar:
- Measuring Cups – from the Dollar Store
- A Spatula – from the Dollar Store
- A Dish Towel – from Walmart
- Silicone Whisk – from Walmart
- Hot Cocoa Mix – these cute boxes were sold as a gift set at Walmart
- Powdered Sugar Shaker – from Amazon
- Flavored Syrup – from any grocery store
Here is the printable that gives the instructions and says for regular or chocolate waffles. Just click on the image to get the printable sheet of the cards and print on cardstock. I know anyone would be thrilled to get this as a gift.
