This Brownie Recipe is not the same as all the others! Just ask my husband.
Remember my Brownie Recipe Mix? That big jar of brownie mix that’s better than a box mix, that is just waiting for when it’s time to make some brownies! Just scoop out a couple of cups, add the other ingredients and you’ve got brownies!
You only need 2 1/4 cups of the brownie mix for each batch. Then put the jar back in the pantry until your next craving for homemade brownies. Having brownie mix already made up ahead time means we can make brownies whenever the mood hits. And in our home, it hits often.
I also love that I can pronounce all the ingredients in my brownie recipe mix!
This also makes such a great gift idea for the holidays or anytime you need a quick gift.
Instead of giving a large jar full of homemade brownie mix, you can fill smaller containers for a double batch and then of course attach this printable recipe to use as a tag or paste it directly on the jar like I did.
You can shrink the size of the printable for tags in your printer settings.
I’ve got the free printable and the Brownie Mix recipe here.
If you love fancy brownies, you can add different variations to this recipe! That’s the beauty of a basic brownie recipe, you can eat it as is, or google for ways to dress it up.
I will generally just add walnuts or macadamia nuts to the batter and always sprinkle white chocolate or peanut butter chips to the top. That’s all the fancy I need.
- Mix 2¼ cups brownie mix (find the brownie mix recipe on TodaysCreativeLife.com
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup nuts - I like using walnuts or macadamia nuts
- Grease a square 8 inch pan. Preheat oven to 350° Combine melted butter, beaten eggs and vanilla with the brownie mix. Stir until well blended. Stir in nuts and pour into your pan. It may need to be pressed into the pan.
- Bake for 30-35 min or until the edges pull away from the pan. Add vanilla chips to the top before or after baking.
