Who doesn't love cookies?! The amazing thing about this gift (aside from being super delicious) is that it’s not pricey to make, and it transports really well. If you’re traveling for the holidays a tip for traveling would be to wrap up the jars in a towel in your luggage!
To make these you’ll start by laying out all your ingredients and your empty jar. Then, what I like to do is use a piece of paper (just a regular piece of printer paper) for a funnel to help the ingredients get in the jar. I put them in in this order: flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, sugar, chocolate chips, walnuts and then wrap the marshmallows in plastic wrap (this keeps them from drying out). Then you’ll put the cap on the mason jar to seal it :) Add your favorite ribbon and get fancy with a label maker!
½ Cup Flour
½ Tsp Baking Powder
½ Cup Cocoa Powder
1 Cup Sugar
½ Cup Bittersweet Chocolate Chips, or Bakers Chocolate cut up into chunks
½ Cup Walnuts, Planters Brand
½ Cup Marshmallows, cut up, or mini marshmallows, Jet Puff Marshmallows brand
1 Quart Wide Mouth Mason Jar
Ribbon for garnish
1 Stick Butter
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
To assemble the jar- using a piece of paper as a funnel, start by pouring ingredients into the mason jar in the following order: flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, sugar, chocolate chips, walnuts. Then wrap the marshmallows in plastic wrap and put it on top of the nuts. Put the lid onto the jar, and add a label and gift to someone special.
If making the rocky road brownies- Preheat oven to 350. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. In a bowl add stick of butter and microwave it for 30 seconds. Then add eggs and vanilla extract and stir.
Next add contents of the jar (minus the marshmallows) and stir. Pour batter into the prepared pan and then top with marshmallow pieces. Bake for 35 minutes, then remove from oven, allow to cool, then lift the parchment paper out and cut brownies (you can cut either 3 or 4s, so you'll get 9 or 12 brownies.)
