Here's a blonde brownie mix to give as a gift, with brown sugar, chocolate chips, and pecans or walnuts. Everyone loves homemade treats, but when everyone already has more sweets and baked goods than they need, giving the gift of a homemade brownie mix allows the recipient to enjoy the treat when they want to. The brownies are easy to mix, just add a tag with instructions for mixing and baking.

- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
