Peppermint-Fudge Brownie Mix

This mix is so pretty when packaged as a gift, with the crushed peppermints sparkling against the dark chocolate colors. I like to print the baking instructions neatly on an index card to include with the mix, and decorate with Christmas stickers. —Barbara Burge, Los Gatos, California

    I made these brownies and they were very good. I thought the peppermint flavor could have been stronger, though. My friend tried putting the ingredients indicated in a quart jar and they didn't fit!
