  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-quart canning jar with lid
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • Child’s blunt-tip safety scissors
  • Fabric (choose seasonal fabric if giving a holiday gift)
  • Ribbon
  • Pen
  • Decorative tag
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch or peanut butter chips (optional)


  • Mix the flour with the salt in a small bowl.
  • Help your child layer the ingredients in the jar, beginning with the flour/salt mixture, continuing in order, and ending with the white chocolate chips. (You may not need as many chips if there's little room left in the jar.)
  • Screw on the lid.
  • Cut a circle of fabric about 4 inches wider than the diameter of the jar.
  • Tie the fabric circle around the lid with ribbon.
  • Write the following directions on a decorative tag:
    Sand Art Brownies: Combine the contents of the jar with 1 teaspoon vanilla, 3/4 cup vegetable oil, and 4 eggs. Beat until just mixed. Pour into a greased 9-by-13-inch pan. Bake at 350ºF for 25–30 minutes.
  • Attach the tag to the jar.
  • If you like, substitute butterscotch or peanut butter chips for either of the chocolate chips.
