Instructions Checklist
  • Coat kitchen scissors with cooking spray. Finely snip the 1/4 cup red gumdrops; toss with 2 teaspoons of the sugar. Finely snip the 1/4 cup green gumdrops; toss with the remaining 2 teaspoons sugar.

  • In a 1-quart jar layer flour, the 1 cup sugar, the baking powder, salt, the snipped red gumdrops, and the snipped green gumdrops. Place white chocolate and the 40 gumdrops in separate small resealable plastic bags; seal bags. Set bags on top of layered mix in jar; fasten lid. Include directions for making cookies with gift.

To Make Cookies:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Remove bags of white chocolate and gumdrops from jar; set aside. Empty the remaining contents of the jar into a large bowl. Stir in 1 egg, 1/2 cup softened butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla until combined. Shape dough into 40 about 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet. Using your thumb, make an indentation in the center of each ball. Place a gumdrop in each indentation. Bake about 10 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool. In a small saucepan cook and stir white chocolate over low heat until melted. Spoon white chocolate over tops of cookies to cover gumdrops. Let stand until chocolate is set.

To Make Ahead:

Store jar of mix in a cool, dry place for up to 1 month.

To Store:
