Sweetness in a Jar

I've never tried baking in canning jars until now.  Let me just say...FUN!!!

This is a recipe I found online @ and it should have been baked in 4oz, wide mouth, half pint jars, for ease of eating, but I figured anyone would be willing to "dig" for this sweet treat!

Ok...let's get started, shall we?

Basic Ingredients

Mixing Cocoa and Flour

Melted Butter and Semi-Sweet Chocolate

Added to Flour/Cocoa and Mixed

Poured into 8oz Half Pint Jars
Into the Oven They Go

Meanwhile...Pepperment Ganache
To DIE For!!

A Layer of Ganache After the Brownie Cupcake has Baked and Cooled

Frosted with THE BEST Whipped Cream Frosting I Have Ever Made!
Not Too Sweet, as Not to Take Away from the Ganache and Brownie

Now, I did not have the proper piping tip, so it's not as pretty as it could have been, but...who REALLY cares, right? the pic isn't great, but I could hardly contain myself waiting to inhale that bite...

Try it. You'll LOVE it!
Merry Christmas!

Oooh, I was wondering what you were doing with those jars. I felt that it was too late to can goods right now. This is actually better...
