Today I am sharing this great Coconut Brownies in a Jar recipe from Gooseberry Patch’s Recipes for Warming Hearts.
Now, if you or your gift recipient is not a coconut fan, just omit the coconut and this still makes a very yummy fudgey brownie.
Now when I got to putting this together, I used a quart sized canning jar. (Psst… if your store doesn’t have them, you can buy them online.)
The recipe recommends using a wide-mouthed jar.
I didn’t have one at the time, so I used a regular mouthed jar, I just had to tap the contents down to make it all fit.
Now tie a pretty little red bow on it and slap a label on it with the remaining instructions…
Now you have a cute little jar to give and now you are done.
Or, are you…
While the jar itself is a nice gift, here are a couple ideas to enhance the gift…
What if while you assembled the jar, you made a batch of brownies to accompany the jar for the gift recipient as a part of the gift?
Why not pair your jar and brownies with a copy of 101 Cupcake, Cookie & Brownie Recipes. You might recall that I LOVED this little sweet book a while back when I reviewed it for Gooseberry Patch and I specifically adored the Best Blondies Ever recipe I found in there.
Regardless of what you decide to do with your jar, you need to know how to complete the recipe, right?!?
