Bag Plus Recipe

This tutorial provides a gift bag pattern, plus my recipe for my family's favorite brownies. I perfected this recipe years ago, and people love them. The best part? They can be made right in a sauce pan - no mixing bowls or special equipment needed!

Chocolate Lover's Gift

Designer: Christina Sherrod

brownie mix This easy-to-make drawstring bag works perfectly as a gift bag for my chocolate lover's gift: a brownie baking pan plus my sauce pan fudge brownie mix. The perfect gift for all of your chocolate loving friends. Mix the dry ingredients into a zip lock bag, add a decorative label (we supply one for you). Place the mix, directions, and a brownie pan into the drawstring bag and present as a gift.

The directions list the "secret ingredient" that makes perfect, moist, fudge brownies. OK, that part is not organic, but it makes for perfect, flavorful brownies.

This set was made for my daughter, who loves dogs, so I chose Paw Prints fabric. 

Gift Bag Size

bag approx. 9" wide x 12" tall
plus ruffle area above casing



One piece of fabric measuring 44" x 12" *

* (1/3 yard of fabric that is at least 44" wide will make one bag, 1 full yard will make three bags)

Two strips of contrast fabric, each measuring 30" x 1.75" (or ribbon for ties)  

Other Sewing Supplies

sewing scissors
quilting pins
large sewing ruler
fabric marking pencils
seam ripper
rotary cutter and mat (optional but nice)

Supplies For Brownie Mix

One quart size zip top freezer bag

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa baking powder (I have traditionally used Hershey's, but now prefer good quality, organic cocoa baking powder)

1 cup sugar

label (create your own label, or print our label - see below)

One 8" x 8" x 2" baking pan **

** A glass baking pan with storage lid is a nice choice because, after baking, the lid is placed onto the pan and the brownies stay fresh longer. Remove lid when baking. For someone with limited space and time, being able to store the brownies in the baking pan is a real benefit.
