A jar of this attractive layered mix produces a yummy batch of fudgy brownies that are dressed up with chocolate chips and M&M’s. If you need a quick gift for a neighbor or teacher, this is a delicious solution. —Joan Hohwald, Lodi, New York

"I make these every year with my 4th grade students for parent gifts. We call them Christmas brownies and have a lot of fun layering the ingredients in the jar. I adjusted the recipe to bake for 35-40 minutes because whenever I baked them according to the directions, they were a gooey mess of underbaked brownies."
