Brownies in a Jar



  • 1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Place sugar in bottom of a 1-quart canning jar (the kind with the wide mouth).
  3. Layer the remaining ingredients on top of sugar: cocoa, flour mixture, pecans and chocolate chips.
  4. To make jar more festive, the top of the jar can be decorated with a piece of fabric or colorful gift wrap tied with a ribbon or gift cord.
  5. Attach this recipe to the jar:


When ready to prepare brownies pour contents of jar into a large mixing bowl and blend well. Add 1/2 cup margarine or butter and 3 eggs, slightly beaten. Mix until well blended. Spread batter in a well-greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean. When cool, cut into 2-inch squares. Makes about 2 dozen delicious brownies.
