Brownies in a Jar

For Christmas for my MOPS girls this year, I made Christmas Brownie Jars. Each jar is filled with the dry ingredients necessary to make brownies and includes the instructions for finishing the recipe.I find the smooth-sided jars at Hobby Lobby.
When on sale, they can be picked up for about $1.50 each.
To assemble, pour the following ingredients into the jar,
in this order:
(each ingredient may need to be pressed down to make sure there's enough room)

2 1/4 cups white sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

I printed the instructions on to large mailing labels and then cut them down to the size I needed. The instructions are as follows:

Pour all dry ingredients into a bowl. Mix thoroughly. Add 3/4 cup margarine or butter and 4 slightly beaten eggs. Mix until blended. Spread batter into slightly greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool completely prior to cutting.
These are great as hostess gifts, gifts for neighbors or secret Santa gifts.

Helpful hint : make a couple extra jars to have on hand for when you need a gift in a hurry!
