Crock Pot Brownies in a Jar

This is one of those recipes that had me curious  to see if it would really work.  I can now say it does and they are delicious!!  It turns out to be a very dense moist brownie and the round slices makes it kind of fun.    It does take awhile to cook so if you are in a hurry, this is not the brownie for you, but if you can wait awhile it is a nice change from the normal brownie.

Crock Pot Brownies in a Jar
adapted from Gooseberry Patch
recipe makes 3 pint size jars 
3/4 cup butter
3 -1 oz. squares unsweetened baking chocolate
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup  + 2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 - 1 pint, wide mouth canning jars, sterilized.
Melt butter and chocolate together in a medium saucepan over medium/low heat.
When melted remove from heat; stir in the eggs,sugar and vanilla.  Mix by hand until well combined.  Add flour and baking powder.
Spray jars with cooking spray, making sure to coat them well.  Pour batter into the jars. 
Take a square of aluminum foil and spray one side with cooking spray. 
  Cover the jar tightly with greased side towards to inside of the jar.  Place jars in the crock pot, pour 1 cup of water around them.
Cover and cook on high for 3- 3 1/2 hours, or until a toothpick inserted in the center tests clean. (Mine took the full 3 1/2 hours.)
 Remove the jars from the crock pot; cool for 10 minutes. 
 Using a knife loosen the edges of the brownies from the jars; turn to remove them.  Cool brownies completely on a wire rack before slicing.
 
 Makes 18-20 servings.

* My 9 year old made these.  I helped her with the batter and poured them in the jars and she did the rest, including taking pictures. Thanks Kelsee!!
