Brownie Mix Jar

Here is a fun project to make for a friend! 
Pre-made brownie mix that is great to give to someone for any holiday! 
Just add all of the dry ingredients to a mason and then add the additional ingredients and directions to a little card and tie it to the jar. 
The brownies taste great too! 

Friendship Brownies

1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. All-Purpose Flour
2/3 cup Packed Brown Sugar
3/4 tsp. Salt
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/3 cup Baking Cocoa
1/2 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Chopped Walnuts

Additional Ingredients:
3 Eggs
2/3 cup Vegetable Oil
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Pour the flour into a 1-qt. glass container with a tight fitting lid. On top of the flour, layer the brown sugar, salt, sugar, baking powder, cocoa, chocolate chips and nuts. Do not mix. Cover and store in a cool dry place for up to 6 months. To prepare brownies: In a large bowl, beat the eggs, oil and vanilla. Stir in the brownie mix until well combined.

Spread into a greased 9 inch square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 34-38 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted near the center and comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Makes 16 brownies.
