Cheats fudge brownies in a jar

I love a good fudge brownie (none better than homemade and as a gift in a jar!) and one of the easiest (but very expensive) ways to make these is to buy a never fail Aunt Betty’s brownies (Betty Crocker). I love these brownies they are so yummy and easy to make but boy are they expensive now, not to mention full of “extras”! I was super rapt when I found a cheats recipe on fake it frugal. 
These brownies are just like the “real” boxed thing but non of the additives/ preservatives and most of all everything was already in my pantry. My best friend loves Aunt Betty’s brownies so I made up a recipe in a jar for her for Christmas.

Dry ingredients in the jar:


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup plain flour
1/3 cup (Dutch) cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

Extras:
M and Ms or chocolate bits 

Wet ingredients;

2 free range eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla essence

Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Add the wet ingredients and mix.
Bake at 180C for 20-25 minutes. 

If you are making this as a gift add the dry ingredients into a 1 quart jar layering carefully then on a card write:

Fudge brownies.
Add:
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
Empty the jar in a bowl and add the wet ingredients. Mix together.
Bake at 180C for 20-25 minutes.
