    1. bakedbree

      Welcome! I am so glad that you like what you see.

  17. blondie lover

    one of my favorite kitchen gadgets is a canning funnel….a wide-mouthed funnel made just for pouring scrumptiousness into canning jars! so no more carefully pouring from a 1/4 cup. how great is that?! thanks for the recipe! blondie lover

    1. bakedbree

      I just got one! I was thinking about using it when I was making these and ordered one the same day! Thanks for the tip.

  18. corey

    I’m just baking up the lovely jar of blondies you gave me right now. They smell so good. I think they will be perfect for Andrew’s preschool party tonight.

    1. bakedbree

      Yeah! Glad that you liked them.

  19. Hannelore

    i love the look of this, and had to look up heath chips. We don’t have hersheys things here in Australia. What do you think I could substitute for these toffee chips? Life’s tough down here, I don’t know how i’ve lived this long without heath chips!

      Heath chips are are toffee chips. Just our brand.

    1. bakedbree

      Welcome Debra and thank you!

  22. Jennifer

    Bree,
    Great job, these look amazing. This is actually a life saver, I had no idea what I was going to make for all the women in my family as well as my boyfriends family and now I know =) so thank you for that. Just one question, what size (oz) are the mason jars you used for this recipe?

    1. bakedbree

      They are 1 quart jars. I am glad that you found something to give. πŸ™‚

  23. Pam

    Hey Bree!! This blondie idea is like the gift that keeps on giving…here it is a year later and it’s still and awesome idea as ever and comments are non-stop πŸ™‚ I’m thinking this is what my co-workers are going to get this year…so thanks sooo much for this post!

    1. bakedbree

      It is Pam!

  24. Eleanor

    How long can you store the jar before the ingredients will go bad? Can wait to try these!

    1. bakedbree

      I would say a month or two.

  25. Jen

    I have so many great teachers to give gifts to this year and this will be perfect. Who doesn’t love to bake cookies.

    1. bakedbree

      I don’t know! Hope they like them!

  26. Maggie @ Vittles and Bits

    These look great! Do you remember what size jar you used? Quart? Thanks! πŸ™‚

    1. Maggie @ Vittles and Bits

      Oops nevermind I see you answered that question already in the comments. Sorry, thanks!

      1. bakedbree

        no problem.

    1. bakedbree

      thank you!

  27. Soraya Singh

    I made these jars as holiday gifts and everyone loved them! I also just baked a batch in the oven as dessert for my dinner party tonight. Im so looking forward to serving them with ice cream!

    1. bakedbree

      Yum! That sounds wonderful!

  28. Latisha

    Did you pack the brown sugar when measuring?

    1. bakedbree

      Yes.

  29. Allison

    What size mason jar did you use for this?

    1. bakedbree

      1 quart

  30. April

    These are awesome! Thank you so much!! I just noticed though, that there’s a typo in the recipe card…there’s no ‘m’ on ‘from’ in the second last line of instructions. I’ve tried to change it but am seemingly tech-challenged. Any chance you could update that if you have a moment? I’m making a few of these for gifts and love the style of your recipe-card. Thanks! πŸ™‚

  31. Sandy

    I would like to print the label but it has a misspelled word – from (missing the m). I gave this for gifts last year and just wrote the m in but it would look more professional to have it printed. This recipe is so good, I always have a quart jar on my counter ready for unexpected guests – to make for them or to give them the jar. Thanks for the recipe!!

    1. bakedbree

      I’ll have to remake it, thanks for the reminder.

  32. Keila

    Did you sift the flour before adding it to the jar?

    1. bakedbree

      Nope.

  33. Danielle

    What flour did you use?

    1. bakedbree

      APF.

  34. Florence Jepsen

    I purchased mason jars today – quart-size. They don’t look the same as yours. What kind did you use?

    1. bakedbree

      I used quart size mason jars. They come in wide mouth too. Maybe that is why yours look different.

  35. Amy

    Can the pecans or walnuts be omitted without affecting the results?

    1. bakedbree

      I don’t see why it would. Give it a try.
