Mint brownies in a jar
Not only do they taste great, but the mix looks so pretty in a jar!
We altered this recipe slightly to include these limited edition dark chocolate and mint chips. Though you could give this mix-in-a-jar gift anytime of the year, we decided to make it a Christmas gift for a relative who loves mint brownies, but doesn’t always have all the ingredients on hand to make them.
The only ingredients the recipient will need to have on hand are butter, eggs, and vanilla.
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cup dark chocolate and mint chips*
Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Pour in quart jar. Layer remaining ingredients in the order listed. Press each layer firmly in place before adding the next layer. NOTE: You may need to wipe the inside of the jar with a dry paper towel after adding the cocoa powder.
