1/3 Photos of Brownie Mix - Amazing Every Single Dang Time
Annie H's Note:
I found this one at www.stretcher.com while looking for "homemade baking mixes". This recipe comes out rich and fudgy every single time. It's also very easy to put together initially. Prep time is the time it takes to mix a full batch of brownie mix and put it in bags. Putting it in bags is not necessary, it's just something I do to make an easy thing even easier. Please Note: I have changed the Yield. It was 12 bags. I made a batch tonight and got 10 bags. In my neck of the woods, the cost of each bags-worth of mix comes to $0.53, making this the least expensive dessert in my cookbook. I arrived at this price using Hershey's cocoa.

- 1To make the mixing as painless as possible, I often take 1 cup of sugar and blend it with the baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. This breaks up all the little clumps before you tackle the monster-big bowl of dry ingredients. I've found a whisk to be most helpful for this task.
- 2Once you've got a clump-free mixture, mix in the rest of the flour and sugar, being very careful that no pockets of un-mixedness remain.
- 3I put mine in quart-sized ziploc bags, 2 1/4 cups per bag. (sandwich bags can be used, but they don't come in the heavy-weight freezer-caliber plastic -- the last thing I want all over my pantry is a batch of brownie mix. Also, the freezer weight has a label on it already) Label each bag with the recipe which is as follows:.
- 41 bag of brownie mix, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine. Blend well (mixture will be very thick). Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts if desired (I've never tried the walnuts due to allergies).
- 5Pour mixture into a cooking-sprayed 8x8" inch pan. Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes.
- 6For a very fudgey brownie, turn the heat down to 325°F and cook for 35 minutes, until a toothpick tests clean. Be sure to refrigerate extra-fudgy brownies.
- 7To serve, I cut 1/4" off of each side (while still in the pan) and remove the "brownie sticks" before cutting and removing individual pieces. My family loves the brownie sticks, and the serving pieces are much more clean. Store them covered. These brownies never need frosting (in my opinion) and make a great source for emergency chocolate.
