To DECOY (and all): 5/8 cup is 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. Had to figure that one out myself!

Best brownies ever! is the regular reply I get with this recipe. I also changed the recipe to 1/3 cup oil, and found someone's calculation of 5/8cup = 1/2cup + 2Tbsp very helpful. This has become a regular on my gift giving list.

A chocolate lovers recipe for nirvana! Did this for a church bake & craft sale. Decorated the jar, put it on a tray and surrounded it with baked brownies. Did follow the advice of using 1/3 cup vegtable oil plus 2 tbs. of water. Advice: Tried it with 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips instead of 1/2 and 1/2 vanilla chips - DON'T. It was way, way to rich. The balance of chocolate and vanilla is perfect!

I gave this to a friend for a wedding shower present. Instead of putting it in a jar I put saran wrap in a 4 Cup measuring cut and put the ingredients in layers as directed. Then I gathered the saran wrap at the top and tied ribbons around it. Then I gave her a brownie pan and utensils. It went over very well, was cheap, easy, and unique.

Okay, can someone tell me where on the measuring cup is 5/8? I am not good at math so I had a hard time figuring out what the exact flour measurement was. It sounds like I'm the only one. The brownies were okay, very sweet.

These brownies were great! Moist, just right! We used them for a fund raiser. I did modify the instructions to the 1/3 cup oil and 2 tbspns water, we did alot of taste testing before selling the jars, as it would reflect upon the school. One person even ordered 3 more jars after tasting samples we made!

Beautiful presentation in the jar! Very good taste. I agree with others that 2/3 c. oil is too much. I tried the recipe with 1/3 c. oil and it's ok. Personally, I liked it made with 1/2 c. oil, and baked it for 28-30 min. for a chewy texture.
