Brownie in a jar

                                                                                               Pin It
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Wrapping gifts while the kids are away, mailing Christmas cards, baking and giving. I love receiving gifts, but I get joy when I give. Especially baking, I think of the person I am going to bake for and I pray for their family. I am so blessed with great friends and neighbors. God's hand is truly in my life.

I found this recipe from It looks easy and yummy.


1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

                                                                                               Pin It Preparation:

Layer all ingredients in order listed in a one-quart, wide-mouth jar, being sure to pack down after each addition.

Pin It
Secure lid and attach baking instructions and a gift tag.


 Empty brownie mix into a large bowl. Add 3 eggs, 1/2 cup oil and one teaspoon vanilla extract. Pour into a greased 9"x9" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 22 to 25 minutes. Cut into squares. Serves 6 to 8.

I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas like I am. Forgive, love and live well my friends. I always love to hear your comment.

  6. I love gifts in a jar! I've made some cookies before (cowboy cookies) and I think I will have to try your brownie mix--maybe as a Sunday School teacher gift. Thanks for sharing at Thrifty Thursday!
