    Hey there! I’m making these for my daughters christening this weekend and I got a little confused with the recipe, for the flower it says 1 1/2 cups but then it’s followed by a 1/2cup just want to clarify what’s the correct amount and it doesn’t stat how much salt. Thank you!

      Hi Antoinette, Thanks for the questions.
      Yes, it’s 1 1/2 cup flour, which is then followed by the remaining ingredients in layer 1, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt. (there is only one layer of the flour mixture) Layer 2 is 1/2 sugar and so on. Let me know if you have any more questions. And also how it turns out!! Blessing to your daughter on her christening.

    Very cute idea, Erin and it looks so springy! I have a friend who just had a baby who might like something like this so I plan on sharing with her. Thanks for the great idea!

    These are amazing and I’m astounded at just how easy they are to make! I would totally be making these if I still had a kitchen! LOL. Right now my kitchen is a shell (literally!) because we are building a brand new one which I am SO excited about because it will be the first time in my adult life that I have a nice kitchen to work from! I’m totally pinning this for Christmas though because I’ll just switch the Easter M&M’s for green and red ones and WULLAH! #WAYWOW

      Good luck with the kitchen reno! I’m sure it will be gorgeous when it’s done! And yes, these would be perfect for Christmas M&Ms!!

    Erin, everything you put together is just stunning. I love your creative and artistic approach, it makes for such a lovely gift! I love mason jar gifts, they are a treat just waiting to be finished, time saver for the recipient and there is always a sweet prize at the end!
