    Are the peppermint chips like chocolate chips or crushed peppermint sticks?

      They are more like chips. I found them in the baking section at Wal-mart. Andes also has chocolate and mint green ones just like the dinner mints but crushed.

        Yes sugar twice, the recipe is in order of the layers: sugar, cocoa powder, sugar, peppermint crunch, flour, pinch of salt.

      If you look at the jar, it does look like 2 sections of sugar, probably for visual effect when layering.

    I have never printed stickers at an office store – you send it to them as-is? With half stickers and half the round cut-outs? Thanks! Very cute idea for teacher gifts!! Carrie

    These didn’t work. I tried to do it exactly as the recipe stated and there wasn’t enough room in my one quart jar. I ended up just using one cup of sugar and it was fine, but not very brownie-like (more like a moist cake). Also, put the cocoa powder in FIRST, it will get all over the flour if you do it as the recipe states.

      Often when you do a jarred mix like this you need to compredd it with the back of a small ladle or something…Otherwise it won’t all fit….

    Hey there! I went to print these labels and it prints out 2 giant labels that are black and red, not these ones. Am I doing something wrong? I have these jars all made up and I need the labels! Thanks SO much!
