It’s no secret that almost everyone loves a good brownie.
But when it comes to brownie gift ideas, you might get stumped for creativity.
That doesn’t mean that great ideas for gourmet brownies don’t exist! It might just mean that you have to think outside the box.
From getting brownies delivered to intricate brownie spreads, there are many ways to show someone you care through this fudgy, sinful treat.
So keep reading for five brownie gift ideas that are sure to impress!
1. Jarred Brownie Mix
Sure, handing a coworker a box of store-bought brownie mix might seem too impersonal. But if you make and package your own brownie mix, then they enjoy a perfect middle ground of convenience and a sentiment!
To really sweeten the deal, take your time while constructing this mix. Don’t just toss everything in a Tupperware and call it a day. Instead, follow the recipes below when creating your concoction.
First, you’ll need materials. You’ll definitely need a nice mason jar to store and gift your mix in. Then other materials, such as twine, ribbon, and label tags will only personalize the gift even further. Afterward, you can start following the directions below.
1. Instructions for a DIY Brownie Mix Gift
Pull out a tried-and-true brownie recipe for reference
Separate all dry ingredients into separate bowls (this includes flour, cocoa powder, sugar, and any add-ons, such as chocolate chips or caramel candies)
Mix smaller quantities of dry ingredients, such as salt, baking powder, and baking soda (if using baking powder and/or baking soda), into another type of dry ingredient, such as flour or cocoa powder
Start layering; it’s best to add as much color contrast as possible
Start with a layer of cocoa powder, then flour, then dark brown sugar, then white sugar, and then chocolate chips; repeat until you’ve run out of the mix
Squeeze the lid on tight
In a card or on a sticker/label you’re going to attach to the jar, write out what other wet ingredients the giftee will need and instructions for baking these brownies
2. Oven-Ready Brookie Pie
If you like the idea of convenience afforded by DIY jarred brownie mix but want to take it a step further, then an oven-ready brookie pie is perfect. You can either use a brookie recipe or find a good store-bought brookie mix.
Afterward, you follow every direction for preparing the brookie right before baking it. To preserve it until it’s ready to be gifted, simply wrap it and freeze it.
This tip is best used if it can be immediately transferred to a freezer if it will be a while before it can get baked. If you do decide to go down this route, make sure you specify that the brookie must be thawed before baking and the length of time it takes to do so.
3. Mixed Brownie Gift Basket
This tip is most feasible if you’re planning on gifting multiple people. Or if you don’t mind having brownies for your next dozen meals after baking!
Either way, creating assorted brownie gift baskets adds a ton of delicious and diverse surprises for customers. Cheesecake brownies, s’mores brownies, mocha blondies, and many other recipes are bound to satisfy people’s sweet tooth.
Of course, you should keep in mind that some people may have food intolerances, such as nut allergies. The most practical way, in that case, is to scout out which of your coworkers have these intolerances.
If one person has a debilitating peanut allergy, you can remove the otherwise designated peanut butter swirl brownie in their brownie gift. Instead, you can double up on cheesecake brownie pieces. For vegans, you can create/purchase a batch of assorted vegan gourmet brownies just for them!
4. Celebration Brownies Delivered Gift Box –
Instead of a cake, it’s totally valid to create a great brownie gift box for loved ones that prefer brownies. After all, why give them something that they consider a second-rate dessert on their birthday/anniversary/etc?
You don’t even really need to worry about brownie recipes to make them special. Purchase some quality brownies, buy delicious storebought frosting or make your own, and pipe your message of choice onto brownies laid flat as they can. Then sprinkle on your desired add-ons.
With some candles and punch, this brownie is sure to make your peers feel appreciated and listened to. They’ll be able to indulge in their favorite dessert in the midst of their special celebration.
5. Dessert Charcuterie
Is using “charcuterie” in this context too much of a stretch for what actual charcuterie is? Either way, creating a brownie-centered dessert charcuterie spread can be a fantastic way to entice party guests or create an eclectic and sweet gift.
Basic brownies will present a fantastic backdrop for other flavors. And it doesn’t mean that you can’t use salty items!
Pretzels and even bacon can add a decadent kick to a chocolate-y base. Brownies are also great with strawberries, cherries, and oranges. If you need a “dip,” you can whip up some cheesecake filling, salted caramel sauce, and peanut frosting in tow.
Let your imagination run free with this one. Your peers and/or loved ones will thank you for it.
