Brownies In a Jar: Homemade Holiday Gifts by Donna Fasano @DonnaFaz

Brownies in a JarI love to give homemade gifts, and my friends and family seem to love receiving them. Pre-made Brownies in a Jar can be purchased for $12.99. However, you can make these yourself for a fraction of the cost. Here’s a how-to for Brownies in a Jar:

What you’ll need to make Brownies in a Jar:

2 1/4 cups sugar

2/3 cup cocoa powder

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup walnut pieces

1/3 cup chocolate chips


  1. Into a clean 1 quart mason jar, pour the sugar. Tap the jar lightly to compact. Pour in the cocoa and tap to compact. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Tap to compact. Lastly, add the nuts and chocolate chips. Screw on the lid.
  2. Attach the following instructions around the neck of the jar: Empty contents into a large bowl and stir all ingredients to combine. Add 3/4 cup of melted butter, 3 eggs, and 2 Tablespoons water to the bowl. Stir until all ingredients well incorporated. Do not over mix. Pour batter into a greased 13” x 9” pan. Bake in a pre-heated 350º oven for 30 minutes. Cool before cutting into squares.
