Sand Art Brownie Mix Recipe

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
