I just finally finished my Christmas shopping and it was high pressure this year-not only did I have to mail presents back to the US for our friends and family but we will be spending Christmas in Scotland leaving this weekend and I needed to have presents for the kiddos wrapped and ready for the journey north!
As I usually do-I gifted food gifts to my friends here locally. This brownie mix in a jar is such an easy, inexpensive and always well-received gift for the holidays. Like my Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix in a Jar, I made a free printable recipe for you to give along with it too! I hope you enjoy it and it helps make your holiday gifting a little less stressful!
In 1 quart jar, layer the following, be sure to press the layers down as you go so everything fits snuggly:
- 1 ⅔ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup cocoa powder
- 1 ⅓ cup all purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup chocolate chips
- ¼ cup chopped walnuts (optional-substitute with more chocolate chips if omitting)
Give with the pdf instructions below. (Download here.)
