      A couple of months ago I made 8 of these jars for Christmas presents. Yesterday I got feedback from one of the people whom I had given one to. She said that the brownies were awesome and had disappeared quickly. When I told her I would give her the recipe, she seemed surprised. She didn't realize I had made the jar mix myself, but had assumed that I had bought it from Cracker Barrel. To me, that was a great compliment! This was a fun project, and I would like to do it again sometime!! Thank you Mom2Rose for not only the delicious recipe, but for the great gift idea!

      Update Dec 2010 - I have made these brownies a few times now and because the batter is very thick, I usually add 2 Tbs milk to get a creamier batter. In my oven, these take about 30 min to bake. I'll be putting the mix in my Xmas baskets again this year as previous recipients loved them. Dec 18/09 This is a budget friendly brownie mix that is great for gift giving. Thx for posting this Mom2Rose!

      I tried this recipe because it is one of the lowest costing dessert mixes I've come across, a plus when making a bunch for gifts. Extremely simple and fit perfectly in my quart sized jar. I always like to test jar gift recipes before giving them away so I made the brownies. The batter is very thick so you have to spread it over your pan. The butterscotch flavor is actually pretty subtle but the brownies were great. Very rich and sweet. Perfect chewy consistency. Made a huge batch. Great family gift!
