  • 1 1/4 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 100 g walnuts, roughly chopped


  • To make 'brownies in a jar' you'll need a 1 litre glass jar. 
  • In a small bowl, mix the plain flour, salt and baking powder together. 
  • Carefully spoon half of the flour mixture into the bottom of the glass jar. Gently move the flour around so that you have an even layer. 
  • Spoon the cocoa powder on top of the plain flour in the jar and spread around to create another even layer.
  • Spoon the remaining flour mixture over the top. 
  • Continue to create the layers in the following order - brown sugar, caster sugar, milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and finally walnuts. 
  • Close the lid of the glass jar (if you have any extra space at the top of the jar, simply top up with extra walnuts). 
  • Print out our free recipe gift tag and attach to the jar with a ribbon (see notes). I


If you would prefer to handwrite your own gift tag rather than use our free printable, simply write: Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius. Place all ingredients into a large bowl. Add 150g of melted butter & 3 lightly beaten eggs. Mix well. Pour the brownie batter into an 18X28cm baking tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through.
To create even layers in the jar, use a spoon to gently add each layer of ingredients. You can also use a dry tea towel or paper towel to wipe down the inside of the glass as you go.
