Here's something you can do to share your baked goods ~
My step mom does something like this at christmas time. She makes a hot chocolate jar though. HOt chocolate mix on the botton. Chocolate chips and topped with marshmellows. SO good!
That's a cute idea with the pops in the jar. Last year at I Christmas I made gift baskets with gifts in a jar each one included a soup mix, cornbread mix, and brownie mix. They ended up getting a complete meal.
That is a really good idea!! I hope I remember that this year when it's closer to Christmas. LOL

"Makes a wonderful gift for a new bride-to-be, a friend under the weather, or just to say thanks! And it tastes great, too! Decorate the jar with a fabric lid and/or a bow tied around the neck. Be sure to attach the cooking instructions to the jar."
I love this idea :O) it could also just be handy for stocking up and having things ready to go for yourself
