Pecan Praline Topping Mix
Pecan Praline Topping Mix
I'm working on my holiday gift treats plan and came up with a pecan praline topping mix to share with friends and family.
This easy recipe is the perfect 'mason jar' gift that when paired with a custom gift tag and a seasonal cotton fabric scrap.
It's a well received sweet little taste of the season!
I just love the look of using mason jars for gift giving. I keep a collection of jars on my open shelving in my kitchen so I always have a quick way to gauge inventory.
I'm constantly using mason jars for floral arrangements too!

Pecan Praline Topping Mix Assembly
I love the look of this mason jar gift in distinct layers that allows the gift recipient to enjoy the clean look of nicely packed brown sugar, layers of yummy spices and all topped with crunchy, chopped pecans.
To start your pecan praline topping mix mason jar gift.
Begin by setting out your 8 ounce mason jars.
With a spoon scoop brown sugar into a 1/3 cup measuring cup to check volume.
Now use your spoon to transfer the brown sugar to the mason jar, gently packing it down with the back of the spoon so it's flat on top.
Fill as many mason jars as you'd like!
Next measure our your spices and sprinkle each onto the packed brown sugar.
Create little layers of spices and check your work from the side of your mason jar.
Finally, add your chopped pecans. They should come to the fill line of your mason jar, which you will see below the turning threads that secure the top.
Once your pecan praline topping mix mason jars are full, it's time to add a pretty cotton top and your kraft paper printable.
