Last week I participated in a PinChat Live party about desserts in jars. It reminded me that I haven’t yet posted about one of my favorite “Survival Kits” in a jar! Here it is:
This is the perfect little gift for anyone who is up against some tough trials. When I delivered one last night, my neighbor’s daughter said “EVERYONE needs one of these!” (I wish I could make one for everyone!)
I also made one for my husband, who was in a bicycle accident over the weekend. He loved it and keeps it close to his favorite chair to “help in the recuperation process.” He didn’t even mind that it was pink. 😉
I love that this is a great way to recycle those jars, too. This jar started out as a jar filled with peaches:
I just peeled off the label and ran it all through the dishwasher. If there is any sticky residue, a little citrus (or lemon) essential oil should take that right off.
See that lid? Nothing a little gold spray paint can’t fix.
Then just fill it up with some of your favorite chocolate, tie a ribbon, attach the note and deliver. Everyone loves it.
A mason jar works well, too! I like to use a little washi tape on the lid, but fabric looks great, too.
I’m thinking this little note would look good in blue, what do you think?

Before I go, I just want to thank my neighbors the WHITINGS for bring me an entire giant container of chocolate…and they didn’t even know that it was just what I needed! (You guys are the best!)
So you see, you never know who just might need a survival kit filled with chocolate. If you do give out a kit or two, please let me know. I’d love to hear!
