DIY Chewy Brownie Mix – Edible Gifts

For the Dry Mixture:
1 ¼ cups of Granulated Sugar
1 cup of All Purpose Flour
¼ cup of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
½ tsp of Instant Coffee Granules
½ tsp of Salt

Additional Ingredients to make the brownies,
10oz of Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
½ cup of Unsalted Butter
2 Eggs

1) To make and store your dry mixture, simply mix all the dry ingredients together, place them in a container with a tight fitting lid and store in your pantry. This mixture will keep for a couple months. My suggestion is to double or triple the amounts of ingredients so you can have several batches on hand at all times.

2) When you want to make a batch of brownies, add the butter and chocolate to a saucepan and cook on medium low heat until the butter and chocolate melts, remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly (make sure you’re stirring the mixture to prevent lumps) then add the butter and chocolate to a bowl and to it, add 2 ½ cups of the dry mixture and the eggs. Mix everything together until combined (the mixture will be quite thick and not at all runny (these are brownies not cake) then add the mixture to a 8×8” buttered baking pan and bake them in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Allow them to cool before serving.

  1. I made this for a party today and it was a HIT! Thanks, Laura. I deviated from the recipe by adding Dutch cocoa instead of unsweetened cocoa. I then added a package of semi-sweet chocolate chips, not the bittersweet chocolate, but reserved 1/3 cup. Because of the changes, I had to add an extra egg. Poured the mixture into an 8 inch square pan and drizzled the reserved chips. Out of this world!

  2. Hi Laura, do you think it would work if the chocolate chips that need to be melted with the butter could be pulverized in a vitamix so that it can be added into the dry ingredients and only 1 item is gifted?

  3. Made 18 of these to gift. Every single person texted pictures and commented on how great they were. They said the instructions were easy and came out perfectly! Thank you so much!

  4. Me & my mom made these & they were only in the oven on350 for 20 minutes then we started smelling them burn so my mom took them out & the top was black, & underneath it the brownie was Cakey. 😟 what did I do wrong

  5. I made up a dozen jars of this mix. Of course I had to bake a batch so I knew what I was giving as gifts. These brownies are chocolately goodness, so good! The few I've already delivered have been well received. Thank you for this great idea!

  6. I made these for family a few years back and my mother started eating it and said it was really sweet. I asked how she mixed it and asked what I was talking about. I told her she needed to follow the recipe to add butter and eggs. She said she just started eating it.


  7. Just made these cute little jars today to give out on Christmas! Although I haven't tried the recipe myself, all of my recipes from Laura have turned out wonderfully, so I'm not worried. Such a fun idea to try. Also, I found some cute little stickers at Michaels for writing the directions down, in case anyone is wondering where to buy some:)

  8. I love these "edible gifts"! They are all great gifts for people when you have no clue what to give them! ( I also love receiving them! ) Thank you for sharing all these great recipes Laura!😊
