Download and print the labels on a sheet of label/sticker paper. At my local Office Max or Kinko’s they call this 1-up sticker/label paper. It is one solid sheet.

  1. Those look amazing! And I LOVE love love the photos!

  2. Brownies or brownines? sweet labels but sorry for the typoo!

  3. Sorry about my own typo! :)

  4. Sounds yummy! Cute design. Is that a typo on the label??? (brownines)

  5. 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.

  6. Isn’t there any flour in this wonderful recipe or is 2 sections of sugar right?

  7. These look so good. And a really cute gIft Idea. Can you tell me where I can get the Andes peppermint chips? Are they like chocolate chips but peppermint? Also ws s there suppose to be sugar twice in the recipe?

  8. i am so NOT a crafty type person and love, LOVE that there are those of you out there who are. i would love to join and follow you.


  9. This jar is pretty to look at, the brownies look yummy and the stickers are perfect. I am definitely making/sharing these this holiday. Thanks.

  10. Love this. What size jar have you used?

  11. 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

  12. The ingredients call for sugar twice. Is this correct?

  13. Two sticks of butter would be what measurement wise?

  14. 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.

  15. Oooops I mean after the sugar.

    • 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….

  16. What size of mason jar do these fit in?

  17. What size is this jar?

  18. 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!

  19. I couldn’t find the mint chips—think skor bits would work?

  20. Hi – I made several of these for Christmas gifts.  Thanks for the great idea. They came out adorable and I had fun putting them together.  I actually made a jar that I had saved back for myself today.  I am not a novice baker, but I had some trouble with the baking time and there seemed to be too much butter.  Does the recipe really call for two sticks of butter?  Just wanted to clarify.  Thanks.

  21. What size mason jars would I need?

  22. Hi, where do you suggest getting the jar as I can’t find any and can it be shipped to the uk?

    • In the US, we can get them at hardware stores, but I’m not certain where to locate them in the UK. Perhaps do a search for “canning supplies local” and see if anyone local has them come up. :)

  23. Please can I have the ingredients in grams or ounces?
    I’m quite looking forward to trying these out as Christmas presents.
    Thank you.

  24. I’m making these with my granddaughter for the second year- gifts for her friends- love this project!

  25. Hello, I was wondering what size mason jar is best used for this recipe mix? I’m sure its written here somewhere but I can’t seem to find it! 

  26. I tried my hardest, but I cannot get the last 3/4 cup of flour into my wide-mouth quart mason jar! So bummed as this was supposed to be a gift, but even after days of letting it settle, the last of the flour won’t fit. How the heck did you make everything fit?!

    • We had it packed super-tight! My only thought is, maybe your measuring devices are slightly off from the manufacturer?

  27. I was just wondering what size mason jars? There are many sizes. :)

  28. I’ve read some comments on here and notice some have trouble getting it all to fit. I’ve made cookie mix in a jar 2 different kinds last year. Trick is packing really really tight. As tight as you possibly can without making it look bad. It worked better for me putting flour on the very bottom. You can’t really pack flour without a huge mess. Then from there pack it tight. Candies as far to the top as you can or place sugar on top of candy because its white and so is part of the candy. I’m definitely going to do these this year for gifts. :) Thank you for the recipe!

  29. Is all purpose flour fine or do I need self rising?

  30. I’m making these as Christmas gifts! Thx for posting this.

  31. Made these – they came out amazing!! Here is a link to a picture of how mine turned out.

    The instructions were so easy to follow and I can’t wait to hand these out. I’m doing 12 total.

    Make sure you really pack down each layer as this recipe fills your one quart mason jar right up to the top.

  32. I bought everything needed to make 12 of these, and luckily decided to try out the recipe myself first… Had to trow away a 13×9 pan of muck. The middle was uncooked (after 30 minutes) and the bare edges that did cook was unable to be scraped out of the pan.

  33. I go to this website every year for Christmas! Thank you! These have been a joy to give out to friends, family, and neighbors every year! Besides how nice they look….they are AMAZING brownies!! 

  34. Can you sub gluten free flour without modifying the recipe for friends with gluten allergies?

    • Hi Callie! I am not too familiar with substituting gluten flour in recipes so I am not sure. I would try making a test batch first before making a bunch for friends. Let us know if it works for you! :)
