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!
