Brownie Mix in a Jar


Every year for Christmas, I try my best to avoid shopping at big box stores and instead shop locally or make gifts to give. This brownie mix is a favorite because it’s very easy to put together and is a great activity to do with a child. Simply layer the dry ingredients in a large mason jar and decorate with baker’s twine, custom labels, a gift tag and baking instructions.


  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup white sugar
  • ⅓ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ⅓ cup white chocolate chips
  • ⅓ cup chopped pecans

  2. In a small bowl mix the flour and salt together. Then begin layering your ingredients into your jar in the following order:
  3. One half of the flour/salt mixture
  4. Cocoa powder
  5. Remaining of the flour/salt mixture
  6. Brown sugar
  7. White sugar
  8. Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  9. White chocolate chips
  10. Pecans

Once you’ve filled your jar, decorate with custom labels and tags. I used an oval text label for the baking instructions, which are as follows:

Baking Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one 9x9 baking pan.
Pour the contents of the jar into a large bowl and mix well.
Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla, ⅔ cup vegetable oil and three eggs. Beat until just combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!

Quick and Easy Brownie Parfait Recipe

Brownies + Pudding + Cool Whip = a party in a little plastic cup. Dubbed Brownie Extravaganza way back in my elementary school days, this brownie parfait recipe is super simple and quick to make and totally lives up to its name. The white chocolate pudding and Cool Whip filling is an unusual combo, but once you start eating I guarantee you won’t be able to stop. You can indulge immediately after it’s prepared or let it chill in the fridge for up to three days. Feel free to make your own brownies or use store bought ones (no judgment, we’re all busy!) You can also substitute any candy you like for the Skor bar.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes (only if you are baking your own brownies)
Total Time: 10 minutes without baking, 40 minutes including baking
Servings: 5

Ingredients:

1 tray of brownies (Personally, I like to use Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix)
1 box Jell-O brand white chocolate instant pudding mix
2 cups of milk
½ tub Cool Whip
2 skor bars
5 small plastic cups

1. Prepare brownies according to your recipe or box mix directions. Then cut brownies into 2-inch squares and set them aside.

2. Combine pudding mix with the milk in a large bowl and whisk for 2 minutes then fold in half the tub of Cool Whip until completely blended.

3. Roughly chop the Skor bar. (If you don’t have a sharp knife, put the unwrapped candy in a small plastic bag, lay it on a hard surface and use a spoon to crush the candy into smaller pieces.)

4. Place a brownie in the bottom of each cup, top with a heaping spoonful of the pudding mixture and sprinkle with some skor bar. Layer brownie, pudding and candy until the cups are full.

5. Enjoy immediately or wrap with plastic and keep them in the fridge for up to three days!


Single-Serving Brownie in a Jar

Today&rsquos recipe is a real treat a single-serving brownie that can be baked right in a cute little jar! It&rsquos a perfect quick and easy snack as we come towards the dreaded exam period of the school year, plus the fact it&rsquos perfectly portioned for one means that you won&rsquot end up eating 10 portions! The brownie itself is oh-so chocolatey , gooey and fudgy, and generally just super delicious!

Now, if you scroll down and look at the recipe you might notice that the ingredients call for a whole egg while the actual instructions only use 2.5 tbsp of whisked egg. This is because a whole egg would be far too much for a single-serving brownie. So, to remedy this, crack your egg in to a mug, whisk it with a fork and then use 2.5 tbsp of whisked egg. This is approximately half a large egg.

What should you do with the rest of the egg? Well, one solution is to simply make another single-serving brownie. After all, too much brownie is never a bad thing. But, if you want to make a slightly healthier choice, simply leave it in the mug and use it to make scrambled eggs along with a couple of whole eggs the next day! You could, of course, also use it in a fritatta, omlette or quiche &ndash it&rsquos really up to you! Personally, I&rsquod make another mason jar brownie though.

Of course, making a single-serving brownie in a jar requires you to actually own an oven-safe jar. If you aren&rsquot sure if your jars are oven safe then it&rsquos better safe than sorry &ndash bake the brownie in 3 cupcake cases instead and reduce the bake time to 13-15 minutes.

Part of the reason why this brownie is so good is the chocolate. I recommend using your favourite milk chocolate such as cadburys or galaxy. You could also use dark chocolate if you prefer, but I find it&rsquos often a little too bitter. It doesn&rsquot need to be any fancy chocolate either &ndash a £1 bar of cadburys dairy milk will make plenty of brownies! In fact, it&rsquos exactly what I used. To incorporate the chocolate, all you do is chop it super finely. That&rsquos all. I recommend using a good, sharp knife and cutting it in to different-sized chunks. The smallest should be chocolate dust, while the biggest are around 1/2 the size of regular chocolate chips. This makes sure that there&rsquos plenty of chocolate in every bite!

If you like nuts or fudge chips in your brownie then by all means add them! You can add a handful of most things to a brownie and it&rsquoll still turn out ok &ndash almonds, walnuts, pistachios, macademias, chocolate chips, fudge chips, even some chopped glace cherries! Or, go down the chocolate orange route and add in some orange zest.

No matter what you do, this brownie is delicious. After all, even if it turns out looking a bit odd or sunken, just plop a scoop of ice cream on top and voila! All is suddenly better than if it had turned out perfect in the first place! In fact, these single-serving brownies are so good that sharing one almost caused a war between my younger sisters!

If you could make any food as a single serving, what would it be? Let me know in the comments below!
