This was a perfect recipe since I'm trying to use up stuff in the pantry and freezer (cake mix, nuts and chocolate chips). It's very cakey and delicious. Made for Fall PAC 2011.

I wanted to make brownies, but I didn't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I grabbed my 101 Things To Do With a Cake Mix and found this simple but yummy brownie recipe. Who knew you could make brownies from a cake mix? I didn't have chocolate chips, but I substituted Hershey's chocolate bar pieces. Thank you for posting this!
