This version produces yummy brownies that are more chewy and less cake-like than other "in a jar" mixes. This year I made a dozen jars for gifts!

This looks so good! I moved to Arizona about a year ago and my husband and I have just recently made some friends and I want to make a showing at my up and coming Christmas party and I think these will be PERFECT as gifts! Thanks for the idea!!!!

Looks great, tastes awful! I made these last night, and they are so dense and cakey, I can't even bring myself to finish the pan - and that's saying a lot! Sorry! I really wanted to like these!

Made this one up for a pre-Christmas bake sale at the nursing home I work at...I DID change the choc chips to 1 cup of peanut butter chips for something a little different...It looked nice in the jar and within 10 minutes it had sold for a whopping $8! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
