A funny fact about hubby and me: in all of our married life (almost 5 years) our shelves have never once been devoid of brownie mixes. We just love them. I’ve never made a from-scratch brownie recipe that I loved as much as boxed ones. They’re so good, and they seem to keep getting better.
For this post I tried out one of Nestle Toll House’s new premium baking mixes and it is bomb-diggity guys. No artificial colors or flavors, and just the way I like my brownies: dense, moist, and suuuuper chocolate-y. As soon as I saw how thick the batter was I knew it was gonna be good.
As you can imagine, over the course of the last five years we’ve made a LOT of brownies. And a lot of variations on them. Some of our favorite variations are melted mint, chocolate-toffee, and I played around in my kitchen a bit to create a new favorite: strawberry shortcake. My goodness I love easy recipes that dress up well, and these brownies are so versatile. These chocolate monsters are topped with fresh stewed strawberries, crumbly topping, and of course whipped cream for a summer-y bite. I love how they turned out.
I picked up all four of their new baking mixes, so there will be more experimenting going on in my kitchen in the future. You can grab all of them at Walmart: Brownies & More with Chocolate Morsels, Brownies & More with Butterfingers, Cookies & More with Chocolate Morsels, and Cookies & More with Butterfingers. Check out some more blogger recipes HERE, and Nestle’s recipes HERE. Do you guys have a favorite way to dress up your baking mixes?
