A wonderful edible gift, brownie in a jar that can be made in advance. This brownie in a jar only needs raw dry ingredients, a recipe card and the packaging. Best of all, you don’t have to bake them yourself.

Homemade food gifts can be the best gift you can give someone as they are personal and come from the heart. Baking goodies are my personal favorite edible gifts as they have long shelf life and so can be made much in advance. Wrap these up in a glass jar, dress them up with ribbons and labels and give them as gifts to anyone.

All that your friend have to do is, whisk together eggs, water, oil and vanilla and tip the contents from the jar into it and mix. The batter will be ready to be baked.

If you are planning to make a gift basket with personalised gifts in it, this brownie in a jar would be a good option. It is budget friendly and also a genuinely thoughtful gift for family or friends.
