I know you all are going to make these today. I just know it. Hey, I'm going to make another batch, the first one didn't last long enough! The convenience of having a brownie mix in the house, without having to go to the grocery store and buy one. And then you have to remember to cut the box top out of the box to give to the school, and then recycle the box and hope your toddler doesn't go and empty the recycling box.
Instead you just open the tupperware and scoop out the right amount. OR you could divide the brownie mix into individual baggies ad you could just grab a bag! then there's hardly any measuring involved.
Here's what you'll need:
- baking powder
Mix it all together with a whisk. If you have a good tupperware, with a TIGHT lid, I'd just shake it like crazy to help get everything off the bottom.
I didn't, and made a small mess when I did that. You want to make sure you have everything off the bottom, otherwise you'll end up with the last cup or 2 having extra flour or something. Not good.
It kind of looks like hot cocoa mix doesn't it? Make sure you label the container with what it is (Brownie Mix) and when it needs to be used by (about 3 months)
- 8 cups sugar
- 6 cups flour
- 1 (8-oz can) cocoa powder
- 4 tsp salt
- 4 tsp baking powder
Let' make the brownies now!!
- Brownie Mix
- butter (I use a spread type that's dairy free)
It's pretty thick, but it works out fine!
Grease an 8x8 pan. I use a special 'cake release' that works like MAGIC! I've never had ANYTHING stick with this stuff. It's just equal parts shortening, flour, and oil. Easy as that. then just keep it in the fridge until you need it.
Spread your mix into the pan and bake at 350F for about 30-35 minutes.
You could let it cool all the way, or you could just let it cool slightly and eat the whole pan. :) Eitherway, it's yummy!
