Chocolate is the perfect homemade gift to share with family and friends! After assembling the brownie mix, just attach a tag to the jar, noting the flavor and instructions. We topped our brownies with crushed candy canes, but use your favorite additions like hazelnuts or coconut flakes.

One thought on “Giftable Brownies In a Jar”

    Hey Ms. "Muse", did you recently paint your finger nails some bright blue color or are you thinking about doing so? I know not a question you were expecting on your video or maybe you were? Just that I get many visions and remote views and they usually flow in some synchronous order and sequence; so I feel it may be you. Though I get many that come to me in visions, dreams, obe's and real life, so it could be another and overlapped. Interestingly enough, earlier today I was listening to a video about "Jesus" that was a channeled message in regards to Him, His Family and His peeps over in Britain, then to France. First I heard the word and territory, "Devon", which is where a deep Soul Beloved Family has moved back to recently; and then I heard, "Merc'e/Mercei" France. So I come on here late at night after a two hour meditation to browse around and put some items in my cart, when I came across you and your Beautiful Self. I saw you a couple weeks ago in an email sent to me, so I knew who you were or that you existed. I looked you up due to intuition and and a few visions I had and to see if I was correct in what I saw and felt. Made it a bit easy when I saw you had a cafe in France at one time and then the "Jesus" picture hanging up over one of your crates on the wall. Do you happen to own, had owned or want to get and Indian Headdress? If I remember correctly, it may have had yellow and blue as the feathers up top. I had another vision I experienced and saw what I again feel is you wearing this, smiling and maybe sitting on your bf/hubs lap. I saw it from the perspective of the guy, so I did not see "him". When I had this I said to myself, "oh man its that Merce Muse chick who I think is the Jackie-Christina Hybrid lady!" See below for more on this.

    I met a women 1 year and 8 months ago in Divine Guidance and she told me the same, where she was told to fly out from NYC and go to Mount Shasta. I was at a park and told to leave and go to another park where even for my Being, incredible events and experiences took place. From energies, to magnetic eye contact, to seeing and feeling she was not very awake, to a higher Being stepped into her saying profound things, her eye changing color and shape and everything in between. I will spare you the long story and details that still have me confused and the things she said or were spoken through her that day. Why am I telling you this in an open forum? Well your name is "Muse" so you must be able to understand some of this and are no doubt intrigued by it so far and are wondering how you fit in and so forth. Lots of visions and experiences took place after I met that women, who told me as she left that second day she came back to the spot we met and I read daily, " I will email you Chris"; then walked off turned back around and said in the weirdest way and expression, "Chris, have fun with this dream." I was crying for many reasons, as if My Soul found its other part that day, however as I know all to well, the Spiritual Path and all its unseen energies, not so nice Beings and Light Beings that can be very hard to discern at the higher levels obtained.

    So you? Shortly after all this I had what I thought was her energy in my hear center and was Sun Gazing on my balcony when she told me to "come back out for the full moon, sit in the chair and close your eyes." So I did that later that night and was instantly brought into a moving vision experience where I found myself seeing 1st person out on a patio surrounded by many flowers and plants in this wonderful home. A woman was several feet away and I could only see from the neck down. I was excited to see this "Christina" Lady from the above experience as she never had emailed me and still has not to this day, even though she asked for my mail and also seemed to be crying and full of wonder of all that happened between us. This woman reached for a rose from a pot and walked over to give it to me and my excitement grew as she bent down to hand it to me and kiss me. When I saw here face, I was stunned and said out loud, "Jackie?!" I actually call Her "Jackie-Christina Hybrid" since she literally looks like the two of them morphed into one. The vision ended due to me freaking out lol. Thats where you come in. I feel it is you. At first I thought it may be another vibration of Earth, future timeline or parallel life, it could be in a sense; as one does their inner work and the timelines, potentials and possibilities collapse, the highest manifestation will then create itself to be fulfilled and lived out. I AM sorry if you dont follow or understand this all and I did not come here to confuse you or complicate your life. I just speak what I feel and what I know of I share. I know of the importance of energy exchange, wake up calls and such from the physical, emotional, mental and soul level to do the job that needs to be down; whatever that may be for you and I. I learned to expect the expected and the unexpected, as well as to flow deeper inwards and along with the currents as best I can. I dont expect anything from you, nor do I know as of now if you even follow any of this, feel it or had your own experiences that may pertain to this. However, on a Soul Level and Soul Group Consciousness level, me coming here to leave this is needed for this Journey and my work on my end and yours.

    I guess, feel it, take it in and let it sink in to see what you get out of it. I AM to tired now to tune into your energy to see and feel your heart love to give me an idea of how awake or asleep you are at this time. Perhaps I will do that when I recharge tomorrow or in a few days. Some need a wake up call, some need healing, some need to feel me and so on; in order to get them going, right the ship and such. Not sure with you Beautiful "Merce". Pay attention to your dreams and waking life signs, numbers and names for any guidance for your path. Many of the Soul Beloveds have been to France as it is needed for healing the energies there and grounding the higher ones coming in, even if you/they are unconscious to this. If you resonate with this, have any questions or would like to share anything form your side, you may email me at ... If not, be well, be Love and enjoy your life here and "tune" into your Higher Multi-Dimensional Self via your Heart Center. Lots of love to you Merc'e and keep "inspiring" with your food and creativity. Love Christopher <3
