Brownie Gift Tray
With this inexpensive tray which I picked up at a local Dollar Tree, I figured I can skip a step of the packaging process.
Bake, wrap and send, all on the tray – without spending time cutting either. With the easy prep and extra delicious “toppings”, you’re sure to score some real “brownie points”.
You will need:
Recipe adapted from Dining In Again. Recipe below.
- 9x13" tray
- Shrink Wrap
- Container filled with chocolates (I used coffee beans)
- Initial Sticker
Yields: One recipe chocolate + one recipe white dough yields approx. 2.5 - 9"x13" cookie sheets
- 1 cup butter or margarine
- ¾ cup sugar
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 package chocolate or vanilla pudding (Chocolate for chocolate dough, vanilla for white dough)
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
Toppings-Viennese crunch broken into pieces, mini marshmallows,macadamia nuts, non perils..
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream first 3 ingredients together.
Add remaining ingredients.
Cut a piece of parchment to fit the bottom of the cookie sheet, not the sides.
Fold the parchment paper in four and mark with a sharpie.
Flip parchment over and put into the pan.
Press dough into the pan alternating between the two colors.
Bake approximately 25-30 minutes.
Remove from oven and press the toppings into the dough immediately.
Allow to cool.
Shrink wrap the pan.
Tie box of chocolate together with brownies using your ribbon.
