Double.Chocolate.Brownies. Those three words together are enough for me to be enrolled in reading a post to the end. I found this awesome book, Make It In A Jar, at World Market a few weeks ago and bought it because, well because I wanted to.
I decided to try out one of the recipes and I am telling you, it is a hit. It makes a great brownie and a great handmade/homemade gift (in a jar which makes it even better…)!
The recipe is easy peasy. To dress up the jar, I added a felt circle to the top then tied on raffia and holiday bakers twine (also from World Market). I made the gift card attachment using my the new winter Santa hat die from Ellison (will be available in January 2014!!!) on the Sizzix Big Shot and embellished it with fun things using Aleene’s Tacky Tape Runner.
And then I had to create a printed direction tag to go on it. This is all explained in the book.
I think is is really cute and I know it will be super yummy! Who wants it?

Happy creating homemade and handcrafted gifts for the holidays and every other day too,
