Fudge Brownies in a Jar
What a great gift! 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. I use vintage Mason jars or dollar store decorative jars. 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.
2½ cups white sugar
2/3 cup great unsweetened baking cocoa
½ cup chopped nuts, optional
1¼ cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
¾ cup unsalted butter, melted
4 eggs, lightly whisked together
To prepare pour the sugar into the Mason (or other pretty jar). Press down. Add cocoa, soda, salt and nuts and spoon on top. Top with flour and press down. Seal jar and pack decoratively (dollar stores or Michael's or Etsy are great starts for decorating choices.
To make brownies, dump mix into a large bowl. Stir in melted butter and then eggs.
Spread batter out in a 9 by 13 inch pan or 8 by 11 inch (far better). Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes and then refrigerate for 30 minutes and then cut.
Makes 2 dozen.
