Chocolate Brownie Mix In a Jar

IMG_4157 (1)So last night I went to a wonderful group called Make and Cake. I have found my creative home! Its a gathering of like minded people where we chatter away while we make things and eat cake. Perfection.
So it got my creative mind ticking over again, as it feels like I have been in a bit of a baby groove and have forgotten a little to take time to create something as this makes me happy. Even if its just something small, if I manage to create something new during the day, its a good day.
I started thinking about how I could use some of my glass jars that I seem to collect, and I googled ‘food mixes in jars’. Its a thing! Found some great ideas here, and some great Christmas holiday mixes which I have mentally bookmarked for later.

I found this one here and have adapted it just slightly (for no other reason than I used what I had in the pantry without leaving Bear on the bench by himself to go to the other end of the house to get more of what I needed! Because you don’t interrupt a toddler who is happily playing. You. Just. Do. Not.)

What you need – 
  • Half a teaspoon of salt
  • Half a teaspoon of baking powder
  • 95g plane flour
  • 35g cocoa powder
  • 75g plane flour
  • 115g brown sugar
  • 150g sugar
  • 100g dark chocolate roughly chopped
  • 70 g walnut roughly chopped
  • One glass jar 1 litre size
 Plus to make up –
  • 150g melted butter
  • 3 eggs beaten
What to do – 
  • Combine in a bowl the salt baking powder and the 95g flour. Mix well and pour into your glass jar to make up the first layer.
  • Then layer on the rest of the ingredients in order down the list.
  • The ingredients here will fill a 1 litre jar.
Makes a great gift for someone. Remember to add a gift tag that says
