Homemade Brownie Mix

This is a great brownie recipe! It's makes enough for about 8 square pans. Very convenient to have a bag of homemade brownie mix on hand when unexpected company calls. :)And just so you know, I always put chocolate chips in, I've never added nuts.
I have also wrapped the mix and chocolate chips up in a cute bag and given it as a little gift.

Brownie Mix
4 Cups Flour
6 Cups Sugar
3 Cups Cocoa
4 tsp Baking powder
3 tsp Salt
2 Cups Vegetable shortening

Combine and mix well flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Using pastry blender thoroughly cut in vegetable shortening. Store in airtight container in cool dry place (can freeze, but bring up to room temperature before making).
Yield: 16 brownies

To use mix:
2 Cups Homemade brownie mix
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 Cup Chopped nuts or Chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients; stir until moist. Spread in lightly greased 8' square pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until set in the center. Cut into 2" squares.
