How to Make your Own Brownie Mix

Here's a terrific Idea for you all! How to Make your Own Brownie Mix. This is easy and convenient and great if you wanted to make up a few bags to store or give away to your children / grandchildren, if they're just starting off living away from home. You can use ziplock bags or air tight jars. It's also much nicer than store bought box mixes!

In the photo, you will see I've made up the dry ingredients in the jar, and then simply printed the recipe and rolled it in to a tube, and added a couple of bars of chocolate. It certainly makes a nice gift and you can personalise it how you like!

You can simply print out the recipe below on some nice coloured paper and roll it up and tie with a piece of string.

    I’m considering myself as an very new beginner of cooking practice and among all the recipes here, this is the easiest one I think. thanks for posting it.
    question: for the baking time ingredient, should I mix it with a very high speed mixer then pour to bag ingredients? or lightly whisk it? or can I use a spoon to mix it??

    1. Hi Petronela,
      You can simply use an electric whisk to first mix the wet ingredients until combined, then add the dry ingredients and combine. You can use low to medium speed to do this.
      I hope this helps!
      I will add that to the recipe in case anyone else needs the tip too!

      Thank you and enjoy the brownies :)
