Christmas Gifts

This year we are giving homemade Christmas gifts! This recipe is for Sand Art Brownies from Organized Christmas....and excellent site!!



Materials:
12 wide-mouth quart (4-cup) canning jars
1/2 yard print cotton fabric1 round
(6 yards) craft ribbon
2 pieces cardstock (for gift tags)

for 1 jar:
2/3 t. salt
1 1/8 c. flour, divided
1/3 c. cocoa powder
2/3 c. brown sugar
2/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. white chocolate chips
1/2 c. walnuts or pecans

Instructions:
Wash, rinse and dry canning jars.
Layer ingredients as follows:
2/3 t. salt
5/8 c. flour
1/3 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. flour
2/3 c. brown sugar
2/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. white chocolate chips
1/2 c. walnuts

Cut twelve 7-inch circles from cotton fabric. Top each jar with fabric circle, and tie with ribbon.
The website has free tags and instructions for making 12 at a time. Since I try everything first I used the breakdown above for 1 jar. I have not baked these because we have too many sweets around at the moment. Hopefully I will this weekend and I will post the turn out!!! But they were supper easy and cute to boot!!

I separated out the ingredients before hand to make it quicker to set up

This about half way thru stacking the ingredients.
Completed jar with out the fabric.
Completed jar with fabric and jute ... I did not cut my fabric large enough so it looks a little short on the jar.
I hope yall enjoyed this one.... Merry Christmas!!!!
