Hot Chocolate Cake Cookie Mix in a Mason jar

Since cookie love is pretty universal, a Mason jar filled with pre-measured dry ingredients makes a sweet homemade gift idea that everyone will enjoy! All the recipient has to do later is add the wet ingredients and bake. Makes for a quick and easy dessert recipe, too!
