Sand Art Brownies

Sand Art Brownies
2/3 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour, plus 2 tablespoons
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips, semi-sweet
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, or as needed to fill the jar

In a wide mouth quart jar, layer ingredients in the order listed. Tamp ingredients down in jar. Walnuts are last – add enough to finish filling the jar. Place lid and ring on jar, decorate with ribbons. Attach a tag with the following instructions:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter sides and bottom of 9×9 baking pan.

Combine contents of the jar with 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 cup melted butter, and 3 eggs; mix. Spread in prepared pan; bake 30-35 minutes. Cut into 16 pieces, enjoy warm with a cold glass of milk.


Sand Art Brownies make a delightful gift from your kitchen. I made a slight adaptation to the recipe I received from Debra Proctor, Utah State University Cooperative Extension, 1998. Recipe fills one quart jar with mix and will make a 9-inch pan of brownies, sixteen pieces. Nutrition analysis was calculated for prepared brownies.
