These Sand Art Brownies make the perfect gift for co-op teachers and tutors. Actually, they are so good, you may just want to make a batch for yourself! My daughter, home from college, tasted my test batch and said they were the best brownies she’s ever tried.
Kids will have fun measuring & pouring the ingredients into the jar and moms will appreciate that you probably have most of the ingredients right in your own kitchen.
