White Chocolate Chunk Brownies

January 12, 2011

For Christmas, we received one of those homemade jar mixes. My little girl was wanting to help in the kitchen Sunday night, so I handed her the jar and she had a blast working with her brother to mix all the ingredients together. (They did have a few small arguments). While they were licking the mixer spools clean, she commented that she wanted to make it for her teacher for Valentine’s Day. And you know what? This would make the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day! It’s simple to put together, only needs a few simple ingredients and is the perfect teacher or neighbor gift!

Of course, you don’t have to make them into a mix. You could just enjoy them now!


Adapted from

3/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1/2 cup chocolate chips

3/4 cup walnuts (optional)

1 cup sugar, placed seperately into a sandwich bag

In a 1-quart canning jar, layer the flour, salt, and baking powder. (Using a wide-mouth canning funnel makes this a little easier). Add cocoa and shake the jar just slightly to level the layer. Now add the white chocolate chips then the walnuts or pecans. Put the 1 cup of sugar in a small food storage bag; seal or tie well then shape into a small enough shape to fit into top of jar. Press the sugar bag into the top of the jar.

Directions for gift:

White Chocolate Chunk Brownie Mix

4 ounces butter, 1 stick, softened
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°.
Grease and flour an 8-inch baking pan.

Take bag of sugar from the top of the canning jar and pour into a mixing bowl. Add 1 stick (4 ounces) softened butter; beat until light. Beat in 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla until creamy. Empty the rest of the jar into the mixing bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until dry ingredients are well moistened. Mixture will be stiff. Spread brownie batter into prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until brownies are set. Cool in pan before cutting into squares.
