This is a great little gift idea for families with little kids. My coworker was the one shared this with me. She got it from her mother who I think learned about it at the community center.
This was the one gift that I had already decided on giving this year and I knew exactly who would get it also. It ending up being for my brother’s sister and her family. She thought it was very nice.
The only problem was the my jar was too big so I ended up adding in some gingerbread cookies (these ones) onto the top to keep the layers of ingredients from shifting. So make sure that you get the exact right shape of jar. When I went to Walmart, they had ones too small or too big labelled and this one had no size so I could only assume.
Here is the exact paper as to how I made it and the exact page my coworker had photocopied for me. You can print out the page and cut out the lower part and give with the jar as instructions to how you make these brownies.
However, for this little craft, if you look at the jar. The top layer was not vanilla baking chips. Somehow, these are impossible to find anywhere, so when I went to Plattsburgh, I was able to pick up Christmas Mint and Dark Chocolate Chips so I layered the top with that
It was really fun to make. Plus, its a fun activity for the family. That makes it a very awesome gift!
