12 Days of Christmas Jar Gifts – Mint Brownie Jars

Posted by on Thursday, December 13th, 2012

mint brownie jarsThese cute little jars are great for gift giving.  Although I’ve baked a few things in jars before, I baked these brownies in a regular pan and used a 3″ biscuit cutter to cut cooled brownies.  The brownie circles fit easily into these 4 oz jars.  Next I piped some tinted green, mint flavored butter cream frosting onto  the top of the brownie.  It’s that easy!  I imagine you could vary the type of brownie or bar used as well as the frosting.

You will need approximately

  • 10-12 4 oz jars with rings and lids
  • 1 9×12 pan of baked brownies or other type of bar
  • 2-3 cups of frosting, tinted or flavored to suit your taste
  • 1 gallon size Zip Lock bag with one corner snipped off for piping the frosting into the jar

    Hi! I made a version of this last year…with a major difference. I baked the brownies right in the jar! They were so easy to do…but the first batch I overfilled just a bit and there wasn’t room to put the frosting so I had to trim them back a bit. It didn’t affect the taste, but I love that crunchy top on a brownie. I also put some crushed candy can on top for looks. They were a hit!
