Raspberry Brownies in a Jar
This recipe makes approximately 15 servings (1 jar = 1 serving).
¾ C. flour
2 C. semi-sweet chocolate
2 tbs cocoa powder
4 tbs. butter
1 ½ C. sugar
½ C. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1 tsp. Baking powder
½ tsp. Salt
2 C. fresh raspberries
15 4 oz. jelly jars
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate in 15-20 second increments, stirring until completely melted. Let cool 2-3 minutes.
3. In another bowl, combine the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add in the melted chocolate mixture and then slowly add in the flour and cocoa mixture and mix well.
4. Once your batter is mixed you can start layering your mini jelly jars. Add 6-7 raspberries into the bottom of each jar – you want to cover the bottom. How many you use is dependent on the size of your berries.
5. Next pour 1″ of brownie batter onto the raspberries. Add a 2nd layer of raspberries – another 6-7 onto the batter. Pour another 1″ of brownie batter on top. Be careful not to fill all the way to the top of the jar as it will spill out when baking.
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes on a large cookie sheet so the jars are not sliding around. Insert a toothpick around 25 minutes to check them. If it comes out “clean” they are done.
7. Let the brownies cool completely. Serve with whipped cream top (optional) and more fresh raspberries.
