You need a quart jar with lid and rings for one Gift in a jar.
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt; stir well.
Place flour mixture in a clean jar.
Pack down tight so everything will fit in the jar. (Use a spoon or a mallet.)
Add other ingredients, one item at a time, packing each layer down.
Wipe out the inside of the jar with a dry paper towel after adding the cocoa powder,
so the other layers will show through the glass.
Print a copy of gift cards with recipe instructions.
Cut gift cards apart; fold and punch a hole in the upper left corner;
attach to ribbon.
As an added touch cut a 7-inch circle from cotton fabric.
Top the jar with fabric circle,
and tie the card around the ring.
You can even tie a wooden spoon to the lid with a piece of ribbon for a charming effect.
