Mason Jar Gifts are such a cute and easy way to package almost any homemade treat. This year, my daughter will be bringing these Sweet’n Salty Pretzels to her lucky teachers and I’m going to share with you how you can treat the sweet & salty snack fans in your life to this tasty treat!
Sweet & Salty Pretzels in a Jar
I know I’m guilty of going into the Christmas season with grand ambitions in mind for what I’m going to make for everyone on my list… and then mid-December panic strikes as I realize I have maybe two gifts done and 20-something to go!
So, this year I resolved to stick with easy, simple DIYs that could be made with my 5 year old and packaged easily in mason jars, like our No-Sugar Banana Bread Mason Jar Gifts or these Homemade Spice Rubs & Mason Jar Cocktails we made for my grill-enthusiast brother.
No stress, no worrying about wrapping presents – just simple, homemade gifts that tray true to the heart of the holiday.
(Plus, who doesn’t love a truly indulgent and tasty gift!)
After the pretzels are gone, the recipient can clean out the jar and use it however they’d like!
