Sand Art Brownies in a jar contain all the dry ingredients needed to make these amazing fudgy brownies. They are so rich and fudgy, it’s like a heavenly mouthful with every bite.
Sand Art Brownies make a fun gift. They’re easy to put together and everyone loves homemade gifts. Plus, everyone loves brownies and these do not disappoint.
At Christmas, I keep a few on hand for unexpected guests. But you can just use the recipe without making this presentation.
Why make Sand Art Brownies?
- First, these are the best brownies you’ve ever eaten!
- As well, you don’t have to fancy the packaging up like this.
- You can make them as treats any time of year, just omit the red and green sugar.
- They make great housewarming gifts or unexpected treats for friends, teachers, or neighbors.
- They’re easy to make.
- Finally, if you’re not a cook, you don’t have to cook anything. Just package it and give it away!

Hi1 I am visiting from Family Home and Life. This is such a lovely gift in such a charming presentation! I am beginning to see how much fun it is to pack food and flowers into Mason jars! I expect to use your recipe in the future. Thank you!

I've made something similar, but never added the red and green sugar…that's a great touch. Thanks for the idea. Gail (BibleLoveNotes)
