I have a fun gift idea for you today. This waffle mix gift set inspiration came from a post on One Good Thing by Jillee. She has 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 starts with converting one of my favorite waffle recipes into a mix. I took my weekday waffles and then also created a chocolate version. 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 use Ziploc bags. You can find the weekday waffles and weekday chocolate waffles to make the mixes at the links I provided. The printable instructions are for these recipes.
Then a created a card listing the remaining ingredients that will 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 find the jars that I put the items in at Walmart or Amazon. They are available in 2 sizes and I use 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 purchase ribbon from Walmart to decorate the jars with.
To go with the waffle mix, I include the following items in the jar:
- Measuring Cups – from the Dollar Store
- A Spatula – from the Dollar Store
- A Flour Sack 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 for the Waffle Mix Gift Set. It works 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.
Or use this card that doesn’t specify the type of waffle on the instructions. again, Just click on the image to get the printable sheet of the cards and print on cardstock.
