RECIPE: Brownie Mix In A Jar

RECIPE: Brownie Mix In A Jar #gift #holiday #christmas

Every year for Christmas, I try my best to avoid shopping at big box stores and instead shop locally or make gifts to give. This brownie mix is a favorite because it’s very easy to put together and is a great activity to do with a child. Simply layer the dry ingredients in a large mason jar and decorate with baker’s twine, a gift tag and baking instructions.

(Makes 1 jar)
• 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
• ½ teaspoon salt

In a small bowl mix the flour and salt together. Then begin layering your ingredients into your jar in the following order:

• 1/2 the flour/salt mixture
• Cocoa powder
• Remaining of the flour/salt mixture
• Brown sugar
• White sugar
• Semi-sweet chocolate chips
• White chocolate chips
• Pecans

Once you’ve filled your jar, decorate with baker’s twine or ribbon and a gift tag. You can write the baking instructions on a card and wrap it about the jar with the string, or use a custom oval text label.

Baking Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one 9×9 baking pan.
Pour the contents of the jar into a large bowl and mix well.
Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2/3 cup vegetable oil and three eggs. Beat until just combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
