DIY Chewy Brownie Mix – Edible Gifts

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (4,732 votes, average: 4.92 out of 5)

For the Dry Mixture:
1 ¼ cups of Granulated Sugar
8 oz Chips
1 cup of All Purpose Flour
¼ cup of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
½ tsp of Instant Coffee Granules
½ tsp of Salt

Additional to make the brownies:
10 oz of Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
½ cup of Unsalted Butter

1) To make and store your dry mixture, simply mix all the dry together, place them in a container with a tight fitting lid and store in your pantry. This mixture will keep for a couple months. My suggestion is to double or triple the amounts of ingredients so you can have several batches on hand at all times.

2) When you want to make a batch of brownies, add the butter and chocolate to a saucepan and cook on medium low heat until the butter and chocolate melts, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly (make sure you’re stirring the mixture to prevent lumps) then add the butter and chocolate to a bowl and to it, add 2 ½ cups of the dry mixture and the eggs. Mix everything together until combined (the mixture will be quite thick and not at all runny (these are brownies not cake) then add the mixture to a 8×8” buttered baking pan and bake them in a 350 degree for 40 minutes. Allow them to cool before serving.

    things to give to my nephew’s teachers for the holidays!!

  14. Rose Babic on December 10, 2015: (Reply)

    Laura and Joe love yoyr recipes but hate conversting them everytime. BC you
    have a world wide audience could you please buy a cheap set of metric
    scales and weigh your ingredients. Weighing ingredients is also far more
    accurate especially in baking recipes.
    Love you lots but really hope you take on this feedback it would really
    help Aussies like me who also have different measuring cups too.

  15. Anna Mcarthur on December 10, 2015: (Reply)

    If you were giving to a learner cook, you could put the filled jars in a
    brownie tin and wrap them together. A great (and useful) gift!

  16. sandylee_beauty on December 10, 2015: (Reply)

  65. Ulquiorra Michaelis on December 11, 2015: (Reply)

    These would be bad gifts. The receiver would be too lazy to make and bake
    it. They probably wouldn’t even have a baking pan.

  66. Ebony Burgess on December 11, 2015: (Reply)

  86. marie Savino on December 14, 2015: (Reply)

    Thanks for this recipe Laura. I would like to make this for my neigbours
    but just one question please. I am a little confused as it seems the
    mixture makes 4 cups but you need 2 1/2 cups to make the brownies. Should I
    add more of the dry ingredients so it becomes 2 batches of brownies? Thanks
    so much for all your recipes.

  87. erkuh on December 14, 2015: (Reply)

    Just made these cute little jars today to give out on Christmas! Although I
    haven’t tried the recipe myself, all of my recipes from Laura have turned
    out wonderfully, so I’m not worried. Such a fun idea to try. Also, I found
    some cute little stickers at Michaels for writing the directions down, in
    case anyone is wondering where to buy some:)

    I made these for family a few years back and my mother started eating it
    and said it was really sweet. I asked how she mixed it and asked what I was
    talking about. I told her she needed to follow the recipe to add butter and
    eggs. She said she just started eating it.

    I made up a dozen jars of this mix. Of course I had to bake a batch so I
    knew what I was giving as gifts. These brownies are chocolately goodness,
    so good! The few I’ve already delivered have been well received. Thank you
    for this great idea!

  98. Brittany Johnson on December 22, 2015: (Reply)
