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.)
