I'm borderline hypoglycemic, so I need a good breakfast to help keep my blood sugar stable until lunch (often with the help of a small mid-morning snack). However, I have a hard time eating breakfast due to a long and nasty habit of not eating it, which likely led to borderline low blood sugar in the first place. SO, thanks to the great breakfast burrito recipe by Tish (30165) I started experimenting with new ways to make these things. So far, this is my favorite way to make them.
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.
Every time I make this, I want to eat it with a spoon. It's creamy but not too rich, thick and refreshing. You can dip fruit in this (bananas, apples, etc) cookies, cake, crepes, ice cream... oh, gosh, anything that goes with strawberries! My favorite way to eat this is to tear off pieces of a desert crepe and scoop up about a teaspoon at a time.
This is one of my Top 3 favorite sandwiches. My husband concocted this gem after St. Patrick's Day 2004. Since then, we've been known to buy a whole corned beef just for the purpose of making these sandwiches. The prep time does not include time to actually make the corned beef or bread.
This dressing was so very tasty at a Provident Living expo. The person who made this was hosting a booth featuring several different grains one could make use of when storing food for emergency preparedness.
