What you need:

milk-cookies-3

Roll out a cane of tan clay. Test it to make sure it isn’t too big to fit into your glass jar.

Cut thin slices off the tan cane. To help keep a rounded shape I placed my can in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes before cutting. I cut about 18-20 slices.

milk-cookies-5

Round off the edges of your tan clay slices. Dust the back side with some burnt orange chalk shavings. This helps give the cookies a baked look. Set the tan clay cookies in a baking pan.

Squeeze some Liquid Fimo into one of your glass bottles. I filled mine a little less than half full.

milk-cookies-7

Shave some white chalk and use a straw to scoop it into your bottle with Liquid Fimo in it. I added about 1/4 teaspoon of shaved chalk to mine. Use a toothpick to stir the chalk and Liquid Fimo together.

Place The glass jar of “milk” onto the baking pan with your cookies. Bake at 275 remove the cookies after they have baked for about 6 minutes. Bake the glass jar of milk for 20 minutes total.

milk-cookies-8

Use a toothpick to dot chocolate chips to both sides of each cookie with black or dark brown acrylic paint. After the paint has dried fill your empty jar with the cookies. Screw a screw eye hook into the top of each cork. (my bottles already had eye screws attached and were a random find in my craft stash.) Cork your bottles nice and tight and use them to your liking.

Santa's favorite in jewelry form! Perfect for an ugly sweater party!

Enjoy!
