2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Layer the ingredients, in order listed, in a quart jar.
Place a square of banana cloth and place over the jar lid. Tie with a piece of jute or twine, attaching the instructions below.
Instructions to attach to the jar:
1 jar cowboy brownie mix
1 cup butter
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Grease and flour a 13 x 9-inch baking pan; set aside.
Using an electric mixer, cream the butter. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add the brownie mix and then beat by hand until smooth. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and bake 40 to 50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
