It just seems natural to want to share homemade baked goods with friends and family. “Sharing the calories around,” one of my friends once said.
Brownies were an easy choice for gifts especially as a financially-challenged university student. Here are some that I made in 2007 for Christmas presents.
They were dusted in snowy icing and boxed in festive red Ikea containers tied off with twine.
And more recently in 2010, a blue variant of my brownie boxes made excellent graduation presents for my friends as we all finished school. Can’t seem to find a good picture of those though but I think it doesn’t take a huge stretch of imagination to guess what they looked like.
