Reuse Valentine's Day Candy: How to Make DIY Blondie Brownie Jars!

Every Valentine's Day has an excess of candy! If we ate it all, we would grow sideways. When stuck for a gift, I make blonde brownie mason jar kits from solid chocolate. Because the recipe requires it, I hack up extra solid heart pieces. The receiver adds wet ingredients, and then bakes.

You’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 10 ounces chopped chocolate (from Valentine’s Day!)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Here’s how you make them:

  1. Place dry ingredients in a 1 1/2-quart mason jar.
  2. Attach directions.

To make the blondies, you’ll need 1/2 cup butter, 2 eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla and 1 jar Blondie Brownie Mix. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13x9-inch pan. Blend eggs, vanilla and butter, then stir in blondie mix. Spread in pan. Bake until golden. Cool.
