For several years I have purchased a box of Duncan Hines Fudgy Brownies and added a half cup of chocolate chips to the recipe. It is delicious. I have iced it with peanut butter frosting, layered them up and made them even better with oreos and cookie dough, a sprinkling of powdered sugar. Whatever, your heart desires. There are dozens of ways to accessorize a brownie.
This recipe is way more cost effective. A box of brownies is about 2.00. Even though that isn't a lot of money........it does cost more if I drive to Target and try to only purchase the mix. We all know what happens when a girl goes to Target for one thing!
Just mix up the dry stuff and keep it in a ziploc for emergencies. Keep a few mixes on hand for an emergency..............the occasional dinner guest or dessert night at church. This is good thing. I will never buy that box again. I promise.
** (p.s.... I occasionally put about a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon in the mix. )
**Don't forget to date the ziploc and write down the needed wet ingredients & cooking instructions on the bag.
