    Annacia's Note:

    Make beautiful and easy gifts with this brownies in a jar recipe. You chose the colors you want for each season or person. *1 clear glass quart jar with a tight fitting lid should be included in the ingredients but the Zaar puter won't accept it.*

      What fun these brownies are to make! We chose to use blue and red for the coloring to get a pretty bright blue and light pink sugar. The jar of mix looked so cute when finished!! Then we gave ourselves the "gift jar" and made them. The only thing I'd suggest is not using "blue" - haha - it kind of turned the brownies a gray color. But that did not deter us in the least and we enjoyed them still warm with a glass of milk and hot tea. Moist and decadent chocolate taste. Will use the recipe for basic brownies often and plan on making some gift jars for teachers for Valentine's Day gifts. Thanks Annacia for posting this great recipe! Made for Photo Tag game.

      Great recipe Great taste, not too rich, and not too bland. I used half white chocolate chips, and half semi sweet chocolate chips.
