I found this while looking for “gift in a jar” recipes. Someone on the Nest had mentioned making up some jar gifts for their brother in college and I thought that was a great idea. Who doesn’t remember eating Ramen noodles a few times a week because it was Monday and you only had $10 left for the week and $5 was for beer? (Don’t act like you never did that.) Now, while this isn’t really a “meal,” it will come in handy when you get home from the bar and are craving some ooey, gooey brownies. (Yeah, don’t act like you never did that either.)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- pinch salt
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped walnuts, pecans, or chocolate chips
Easy Brownie Pie
- Brownie Pie Mix
- 2 eggs
- 4 ounces butter or margarine, 1 stick, softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325°.Grease and flour a 9-inch pie plate.
Whisk together 2 eggs in mixing bowl; add 4 ounces softened butter or margarine and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Open jar and hold over the mixing bowl. Remove bag of pecans, walnuts, or chocolate chips, shake excess flour into the bowl and set bag of nuts aside. Pour jar contents into the mixing bowl. Mix to moisten ingredients, then beat on high speed of electric mixer for 2 to 3 minutes, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Empty bag of nuts or chocolate chips into the batter and fold in. Spread batter in prepared pie plate. Bake for about 30 minutes, until set.
Cut into wedges and serve slightly warm with vanilla ice cream.
