Each high quality ingredient is carefully measured and hand layered into the jar including white, milk and dark chocolate chunks (yum). Then all you have to do is tip the contents of the jar into a bowl, add butter and milk, and bake. And – hey, presto – amazingly deliciously gorgeous chocolate brownies just 20 minutes later.
