Brownies in a jar are the perfect DIY gift for the sweet lovers on your list! Simply add water, oil, and eggs to bake a decadent chocolatey treat.

Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C). Butter an 8-inch (20-cm) square baking dish and line with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together. Add the water, canola oil and eggs and mix with a whisk until the mixture is smooth.

Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs stuck to it. Let cool completely.

To serve, drizzle with butterscotch sauce and sprinkle with edible glitter stars. Cut into squares and enjoy!
