Wonderful gift idea. Everyone I gave it to raved and many copied the idea! It is a little difficult to pack the ingredients properly and maintain the layers, but with a little practice, you can make a beautiful, tasty and inexpensive gift.


I was given this recipe as a 'gift in a jar' for Christmas. When I made it today, I reduced the oil to 1/2 cup (could have used even less) and the oven temperature to 325ยบ, because I was using a glass baking dish. I baked the brownies between 40-45 minutes before I felt they were "done." They still gave the appearance of being quite gooey and were greasy. The gift in a jar idea is great, but the recipe for the final product needs some adjusting.


The texture of the brownie base was heavy and greasy, not appealing.
