We know what it's like when you're browsing a site with as many recipes as ours. You find a brilliant recipe, want to make it again, but can't remember how you found it!

But we've solved the problem. Now, by clicking 'Save this recipe' or 'I cooked this' on any of our recipes, they'll be saved and grouped into your personal online recipe book. All you have to do is log in with your Facebook account to see them. When you click either of these buttons it will also tell your friends on Facebook what you've been cooking or saving so they too can give our quick and easy recipes a go (but you can turn this off at any time by visiting your 'My recipe book' page).

Ingredients

  • 400g self-raising flour
  • 275g soft brown sugar
  • 40g cocoa
  • 2tsp baking powder
  • 100g chocolate chunks

Homemade food gifts are fun, cheap and show you care: no wonder they're so popular with goodtoknow users! One of the easiest of all is our chocolate muffin mix in a jar recipe. Just add a pretty ribbon and write the recipe for the Christmas muffin mix on a large luggage tag or sticker and stick it on the jar, so the recipient knows how to turn the dry mix into delicious chocolate muffins!

Equipment

  • 1l sterilised Kilner jar (we got ours from Lakeland)
  • Ribbon, to decorate (John Lewis provided this ribbon)
1

Step 1

Take a 1l sterilised Kilner jar and place on a flat, stable surface.
2

Step 2

Mix together the flour and baking powder and pour them into the jar.
3

Step 3

Pat down the flour with the end of a rolling pin to get a flat surface and to pack the flour down tightly.
4

Step 4

Pour the cocoa powder on the top of the flour. You may find this easier (and less messy) from a jug rather than a bowl.
5

Step 5

Pat the cocoa powder with the end of a rolling pin to get a flat surface and to pack it down tightly.
6

Step 6

Pour the light brown sugar into the jar.
7

Step 7

Pack the sugar down with the end of a rolling pin to get an even surface.
8

Step 8

Add enough chocolate chunks to fill the jar right to the top.
9

Step 9

Seal the jar tightly: the mix will last for a couple of months in a tightly sealed jar stored in a cool, dry place.
10

Step 10

Wrap the jar with a ribbon and attach a label with our muffin recipe so the recipient knows how to turn them into muffins.
