Double Chocolate Brownie Gift Jar

This is one of my favorite recipes for homemade brownies. They are dense and fudgy and will satisfy your craving for chocolate. One recipe will make a 8×8 pan. A double recipe will make a 9×13 pan. You just need to bake it a little longer – 40 to 50 minutes instead of 25 to 30 minutes for the 8×8 pan. Package this mix with an 8×8 pan and an ice cream scoop.

Serve it with peppermint ice cream as a special holiday treat!
