One hint for great Mixes in a Jar is to really pack the ingredients in. Use a tamper, if you have one...except for the dried cherries and chocolate.You can also substitute dried blueberries or other berries for cherries. I like Chukar's Dried Cherries, but I also use Trader Joe's.
Chocolate Cherry Pancakes in a Jar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup dried cherries
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
Layer flour, then sugar, then baking powder mixed with baking soda and salt in 1-quart wide-mouth jar.
Add cherries, then chocolate.
Cover jar with burlap or other fabric and tie with raffia or bow.
If you're giving this as a gift--or you don't think you're remember, attach tag with the following instructions:
