|the home made betty crocker mix, ready in a jar to gift to my sweetheart :)|
the mix recipes come from fake-it frugal and are pinned to my recipe must do's board. what a cool website that is, i have spent heaps of time trawling around looking at all the goodness she has to offer! i made the chocolate chip cookie mix first, then made the oatmeal cookies mix. i made the oatmeal cookies (steve's fav) as his valentine's gift and put all the ingredients straight into the jar. i added in dried cherries and chocolate chips to fill the jar AND because i know he loves both those things in his oatmeal cookies :)

|all you do is put the ingredients in a container, shake to mix :)|
|then store them in individual bags for using at a later date, or gift them in jars :)|
outcome: well he clearly hasn't got the jar yet, but i know i will score some brownie points with this jar! it's a definite favourite of his and this present took me ten minutes to make ... seriously, 10 minutes. there are no excuses for buying betty crocker mixes anymore my friends, this is way too easy. tomorrow i am going to enlist the help of my peeps and make a whole lot more up to put in the cupboard ready for baking when i am pressed for time ... who am i kidding, every day i am pressed!
my sincere thanks to heather at fake-it frugal, i love when the things i buy at the supermarket to make life easy are even easier when you know the tricks of the trade to be able to make them at home without the huge cost ... LOVE THAT! thank you so much heather for your awesome blog, fake-it frugal it's a fantastic read :)
