Sand Art Brownie Mix Recipe

These brownies are so good and I always keep a few jars on hand to add to gift baskets or use as hostess gifts. The jars can be decorated by covering the lids with holiday material and tying a ribbon around the top to hold it in place. —Claudia Temple, Sutton, West Virginia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 21, 2014

"I made this for xmas gifts and it was ruined when they went to make it. The brown sugar was rock hard..is there a secret? I was so embarrassed and my family makes fun of me all the time now"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 3, 2013

"Im an avid baker and wanted a good one bowl brownie mix for christmas gifts. I hate to be negative but was so disappointed in this recipe and want to warn others before they try. From my experience this recipe was not worth my time and energy. This was a really bland, bad cake if anything, definitely not a brownie. I would be embarrassed to give this as a gift."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2011

"Before giving as a gift, I really wanted to actually try the brownies to see if it was worth giving! It turned out awesome! Fudgey Brownies! I am considering putting Christmas colored M&M's instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips to make the packaging a little more colorful! I made half with pecans and half without. We'll see what the kids and hubby think!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 21, 2010

"I wish I could give this recipe 10 stars. This recipe is so much better than store-bought mixes -- which I will NEVER buy again. I've made them three times so far, exactly as directed. The next time I make these, instead of semi-sweet and white chocolate, I'm going to use peanut butter chips!!!"
