Like everybody, I have some favourite recipes I bake up every year for Christmas. I’ve always loved giving gifts of food but it’s not always practical to give ready-made things unless you know that it will be eaten right away, especially at this time of year when everyone is baking and giving baking away. One of my solutions is to make up “Brownies in a Jar” as a long-lasting substitute for a lovely homemade baked gift. It works as a perfect hostess gift because it looks beautiful, but also is very practical and easy to whip up any time. It’s especially great for those that love homemade baking but don’t normally keep ingredients on hand to do it themselves.
