I was given a jar of this wonderful Sand Art Brownie Mix from my best friend PaulaG. I made the brownies with my grand daughter who loves to help in the kitchen. We had so much fun and everybody enjoyed the brownies. These make wonderful gifts. Thanks for posting the recipe.

I found a similar recipe in a cookbook and made up a jar recently to give as a gift. The recipe I had did not call for the vanilla chips and as a result the jar was a little short so I topped it off with dried cranberries. It makes a very pretty presentation and I think I will try making these again with the vanilla chips. The jar I used was .75 liters and worked beautifully.
