CHOCOLATE BROWNIES ('GIFT IN a JAR')
This recipe comes from a cookbook called: "America's Best Cookbook for Kids With Diabetes". (I figured it is a pretty good book for anyone with diabetes though)...It was written in 2005 by C Bartley. A friend gave me the book and the recipes that I have tried are awesome. I think this one would be a great "Gift In a Jar" diabetic recipe so I have done that here.

TIP: Unsweetened cocoa powder has only 115 calories and 4 grams of fat per 1/3 cup (75 mL), whereas 1 oz (25g) of unsweetened baking chocolate has 139 calories and 14 grams of fat. Cocoa has just as much rich chocolate flavor as baking chocolate, so substituting cocoa is a good way to cut fat.
