This recipe was making the rounds on Facebook. I'm posting it here mainly so I can find it again easily rather than having to search through the Facebook archives for it. I didn't make it as a mix. I just mixed it all up at the same time. It's a pretty thick batter, so if you sprinkle chocolate chips on top, they stay on top, unlike most box mixes where the chocolate (or, even better...mint) chips all sink to the bottom. I did it in a pie pan, and it worked well in that.
Never buy boxed brownie mix again! Follow the recipe below and make brownies for approximately .30 a mix! So simple, so easy. Not just frugal but cuts out the unknown ingredients.
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
1/3 cup Cocoa
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
Put mix in plastic bags or mason jars.
At baking time add:
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1 tsp Vanilla
Bake @ 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes in an 8x8 or 9x9 pan.
It was a Pampered Chef rep who was circulating the recipe, so she recommended using the Pampered Chef brownie pan, which supposedly cooks faster.
Check after 12-15 minutes of baking and remove when brownies are done!
