Don't you find this just sounds terrific? Brownie dry mix is the easiest thing to create and give. Just use quality cocoa, which you gently stir and then measure. If I, like Oprah, ever did a my own favorite things list/show, Brownies in a Jar would be on the hit list. Everyone who visits BetterBaking.com would get a jar. Sweet. Incidentally, I use old Mason jars or dollar store decorative jars. New mason jars are available in supermarkets or hardware stores, all year round. Ribbons and a card is all you need to finish this gift off but you can also add a dollar store 8 by 11 inch brownie pan. Cost of raw elements: about $3. Care that goes into the mix: priceless.
