If you’re looking for a simple DIY gift . . .
That anyone will love, the fudgy, chewy goodness of this mason jar brownie mix is just the thing. Though it’s pre-made like store-bought stuff, it’s so much better than a box! I’d like to say the secret ingredient is love, but the fact that it only uses high-quality ingredients like real butter and pure cacao powder probably has something to do with it, too.
To make this recipe affordable (and also fit it into a pint-sized mason jar), I cut my easy brownie recipe in half and adjusted the preparation instructions. However, if you’d like to go with a larger batch, the proportions for the original recipe will fit in a quart-sized jar. (Just make sure to use the ingredient amounts and baking instructions from the original post.)

DECORATING YOUR JARTo decorate my jar, I hand-cut a tag using pinking shears, brown cardstock, and a hole punch, then wrote in the gift info and attached it with red and white bakers twine. Super easy! Put the following text on the front of the tag, and the baking instructions on the back.Fudgy Homemade Brownie MixIngredients: Cacao powder, arrowroot flour, sucanat, chocolate chips, sea salt.
