fudge topped brownies

These brownies were created in an effort to use up half a box of brownie mix and a partially filled can of condensed milk. And hooray! Because my attempt to get rid of stuff resulted in a really good tasting brownie which I would definitely make again. Next time I’ll go with a scratch base, […]

Crunch Crust Brownie

I kept finding graham crackers this weekend.  There was half a box in the pantry, a sleeve in the freezer, and a couple in a baggy on the counter.  I’m not sure where they all came from or why I’d scattered them around the kitchen, but I decided to use them up by making an […]

Rocky Road Brownies

I didn’t have time to bake from scratch this morning, so I took advantage of some boxed mix I had in the pantry and made these Rocky Road brownies. I wasn’t expecting them to be that great, but they were delicious. Or maybe I was just craving that instant brownie mix flavor of my youth. […]

whopper brownie

I felt like baking this morning, but wasted too much time on the computer and had to go to the gym instead of making the usual morning cookie. I did have time to put together one thing, though; and that worked out well because going to the gym makes me hungry and I had …

peanut butter marshmallow brownies

Thanks to the brownie mix, these came together quickly. I think packaged mix works really well here because it’s not too rich and doesn’t upstage the peanut buttery-chocolate crispy topping. This cookie/brownie has everything going for it — the texture, flavor, easiness. Apparently, it’s an old recipe, but I just heard about it recently. I’ve seen a few variations and after making variations on the variations, came up with this. I used an 18.3 oz box of Betty Crocker brownie mix, but I think any brand/size would do.
