- Have a clean dry cloth or paper towel ready to wipe down any excess of the dry ingredients from the inside of glass as you go.
- Use a spoon to carefully add each of the ingredients to the jar.
- If you have a bit of room left at the top of your jar, simply add in some extra white chocolate chips.
