Sand Art Brownie Jar Recipe = Simple Gifts of Holiday Cheer


Ingredients for one 32 ounce canning jar:

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup packed brown sugarIMG_1258.jpg

2/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup baking cocoa

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup vanilla or white chips

1/2 cup chopped pecans


First In a small bowl, combine flour and salt.  Then in a wide-mouth 32 ounce canning type jar layer the ingredients listed in order. [Target only had blue jars…]

Begin with the flour and build from there. Cover the jar/s and print off the recipe then attach to the jar. Cover and store in a cool, dry place up to 6 months.

Give as a gift of love.

ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS: Instructions for the recipients to supply and make the brownies.

3 large eggs

2/3 cup canola oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


To prepare brownies: Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C

In a large bowl, whisk eggs, oil and vanilla. Add brownie mix; stir until blended.

Spread into a greased 9-inch square baking pan. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (do not over bake). Cool on a wire rack. 

Who doesn’t like Brownies.? I was given this gift with the instructions many years ago. I unearthed this Sand Art Brownie Recipe to give to friends who love chocolate and like to bake.  If anyone can tell me how the pictures of the jars online come out so perfectly…let me know the trick to that, please?
