    sweeet! Thats a great idea! I was thinking about putting em in a cookie jar, but I don't want them to dry out. Maybe ill just cut them into BIG pieces so that it doesn't get dry...hmmm thanks

    I send brownies all the time. I either cut them and saran wrap them or put a couple in the little zip-lock baggies (That way they're like little individual snacks), then in gladware to keep them extra fresh and intact. So far they've been great once they get there!

    When DH was in Iraq and things would get to him under 2 weeks I would just make box brownies and vacuum seal them. Before he left the other day it was taking things about a month to get to him so I started to use the "desert safe brownie" mix. You can google and find it. I also vacuum seal those. I can't do them anymore because I don't know how long things are taking to get there.

    Saran wrap two together, then put them in a storage bag, then storage bag that too!
    Keep on keeping on.

    Vacuum sealing seems to work fine on brownies. I just threw the vacuum sealed bag in with some other goodies I was sending him and they got there fine. They were cut up into little brownie bites, in case he wanted to share, each "one" was just a mouthful and he could smuggle the rest into hiding.

    For the cookies I sent db I seran wrapped, then tinfoiled then put in tupperware then filled the rest of the tupperwear with non butter, non salted popcorn. The popcorn helped keep the cookies from getting stale and dried out.

    I used to make them all the time and just bought some Glad Press N Seal and warpped them a couple brownies at a time and put them in a tin. That way he could eat a few and the rest would still be tightly sealed until he was ready for them. Stuff works great. Banana bread, didn't make it.

    Oh, and if you want to be lazy about it, little debbie makes brownies that are decent, and i'm pretty sure would survive along with the twinkies and the roaches in case of nuclear war
