every year i make a batch of cookies or some other sweet treat for my family and friends for christmas, but this year i have a 13 month old so i thought instead of spending two or so days slaving over the kitchen i could make jars of sand art brownies for everyone, then they can share in the joy of cooking..

does anyone have some KILLER Recipes for sand art brownies or any other baked good that would work in the same sort of way? (cooking ect.)
id rather not make them all the same as some may be going to the same household..
also if anyone knows any vegan firendly ones as well that would be really great!

I bought a book for $1 at JoAnn with 91 recipes for mixes that you can make and gift to people.  There's a Magic Fudge Mix that you just put in a bag and there's a layered Double Chip cookie mix plus quite a few soup mixes.

Here are a couple websites I found if you don't want to run to the store:
http://www.mormonchic.com/recipe/recipebox/pages/qt_jar_mixes.asp (this one has a brownie mix recipe - plus a really yummy sounding pancake one!)
http://organizedchristmas.com/index-gifts-in-a-jar (this one actually calls it "sand art brownies" like you did, even though I've never heard them called that before)

I love planning parties - come to me if you need any ideas!

I've been getting lots of little Christmas baskets/bags etc from patients at work this week, which make nice little gifts. These are just a couple from yesterday:

(I behaved myself and gave my bf the sweets)  Smiley

You could also do these - they are dangerously fattening and very yummy.  Grin

Seven Layer Magic Bars
Makes about 36
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup butterscotch flavored chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350, (325 for glass dish). Line a 13x9-inch baking pan with a sheet of foil, making sure to cover the sites well. Place the butter in the baking pan and melt it in the oven. Sprinkle crumbs over butter; pour condensed milk evenly on top of crumbs. Top with remaining ingredients in order listed; press down firmly with fork. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Chill if desired. Cut into bars. Store covered at room temperature.
