BROWNIES




We live in Michigan and my husband is a huge Red Wings fan so it will be hockey on tv tonight for us. To celebrate I made some yummy brownies. They are from a mix but you can dress them up.

I use Betty Crocker Low Fat Brownie Mix and follow the directions on the box.


After they are baked I have some fun, today I put 1 cup of mini marshmallows on top and 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. I do this as soon as the brownies come out of the oven. Let them sit on top for about 30 minutes so they get nice and melty. Then I carefully smooth it all out with the back of a spoon, do this slowly and carefully as the brownies will come up other wise.It has a lumpy bumpy look. I also threw on some red sprinkles that I had for the Red Wings. When they cool carefully cut them and serve. I get a butter knife and put it in a cup of hot water and use that to cut, it seems to cause less tearing and they come out nice. I know the chips add a little more fat so that is why I use the low fat mix and the brownies taste great.



Have fun with it, now go and make some brownies for dessert!

Anne, Thanks for visiting lolas-garden. Looks like we got a few things in common. My husband and son are also big hockey fans and yes, I have a vegetable garden. Cooking comes naturally. The brownies look really yummy. Lucky me I have a few grand kids to share it with. If they're lucky!
