I'm testing in-a-jar recipes for Christmas and these are not one of my top choices...Very easy to make and very moist but bland tasting. Nobody in my family liked them. Read More

These are excellent! I don't care for nuts in my brownies so I substituted peanut butter chips and chocolate chips instead. Be sure your jar will hold 32 oz. before you begin - or you will not be able to fit all ingredients! Read More

I made these for a Red Cross event and they were a hit. While warm out of the oven I added a bit of powdered sugar to the top which is how I remember them as a child.

I had a Christmas cookie party. I had my friends come over and make this mix to give away to family and friends for the holidays. We put the mix in large ziploc bags and placed it inside an oven mitt. This worked out great and everyone just raved about how great the brownies were and how they kept them for themselves. This is now apart of our holiday traditions. Read More

I cut the sugar to 2 cups as some others did and added 1/2 c. chocolate chips instead of nuts. My kids actually thought less chips would be better so I'll probably go with 1/3 c. next time. And melt the butter/marg before adding... Read More
