love in a jar

In an effort to become a little more organised this Christmas
I've been trying out some jar gifts .
Of course I have to test that they all work out and
my family think it's wonderful !
Anyway in case you would like to try some of these I'm putting
all the recipes here so I can find them again .

What you will need is a glass jar equivalent to about 4 cups.
All ingredients will vary from jar to jar .

Chocolate Bars.
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cocoa
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 choc bits
1 and 3/4 cup of plain flour
1 tsp baking powder.
Layer all your ingredients in this order in your jar.
Decorate the jar with a piece of ribbon .

Now you will need to make a little card to go with your gift
and listing the remaining ingredients and instructions .

Chocolate Bars .
1 jar Chocolate Bar Mix
3/4 cup melted butter
3 eggs lightly beaten
tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients and blend well.
Spread mix into slice tin and bake at 180c about 30 mins.
Cool in pan before cutting into squares .
Enjoy !

Mix will keep in this jar for about 3 months.

As you can see this slice has been tested and passed by my family .
It was rated as ~ delicious !
