Giftable Brownies In a Jar

December 14, 2016

Chocolate is the perfect homemade gift to share with family and friends! After assembling the brownie mix, just attach a tag to the jar, noting the flavor and instructions. We topped our brownies with crushed candy canes, but use your favorite additions like hazelnuts or coconut flakes.
