2 cups Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
3/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 cups Sugar
In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, cocoa powder & baking powder. Layer mixture
and sugar in order given in a 1 quart canning jar. It is helpful to tap jar lightly
on a padded surface (towel on counter) as you layer ingredients to make all
ingredients fit neatly. Use scissors to cut a 9 inch-diameter circle from fabric of
your choice. Center fabric circle over lid and secure with a rubber band. Tie on a
raffia or ribbon bow to cover the rubber band. Attach a card with the following
