Recipe by mums the word
This is a recipe that I clipped from a magazine (Canadian Living?) back in 2003. I have given this mix out many times and have been asked for this recipe. It is very good. I use the cellophane gift bags from the Dollar Store in a 2 quart size. It is much cheaper than buying jars, as you get anywhere from 12- 20 bags for $1. Attach the directions with a pretty card and some curly ribbon.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2⁄3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 (6 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup pecans or 1 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
Ingredients to be added by the cook
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 2 eggs
