DIY Gingerbread M&M’s Cheesecake Cookie Mix in a Jar #HolidayMM #shop


Like the Holidays are not hectic enough, we decided to add a move in to the mix! I have been working on putting together ideas for new neighbors, holiday gatherings, and any last minute gift ideas. Since  Gingerbread is one of my favorite seasonal flavors so it’s no surprise that it inspires people to think outside of the box. M&M’s have created a new Walmart exclusive–Gingerbread M&M’s! They are so delicious! I am a huge fan of M&M’s especially their seasonal flavors. I can honestly say that the Gingerbread one’s are my new favorite. They had the perfect amount of gingerbread flavor paired with the loved flavor of M&M’s that is just heavenly. Even just as a snack right out of the bag! If you want more (or are trying Gingerbread M&M’s for the first time), don’t miss the coupon found at the bottom!


When I go to people’s houses, I am always impressed by their specialty snacks or cookies only to find out they are store-bought. I know we don’t all have time to make homemade snacks though. With Gingerbread M&M’s, I created a cookie  mix that has only  4 ingredients that gives the best of both worlds. They are a specialty cookie that is so easy to make homemade. The Gingerbread M&M’s Cheesecake Mix in a jar gets rave reviews!

  3. I love cookie mixes in a jar. A friend of mine gave them out as birthday party favors, which I thought was a great idea. Your mix looks delish and I appreciate an almost sugar-free cookie. Totally intrigued by gingerbread M&M’s..must try soon!

  4. they look and sound so delicious!! I will have to try these. Maybe they still have the m&ms in the store, if not I will have to save the recipe for next year.
