Ah, yes. I remember the Girl Scout Brownie Mixer well….oh wait…this is about the brownies you stuff into your mouth? Okay, well that’s me in the pic (second from the left) during my Brownie days.
So we’re talking Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix. They left the gluten out to spare many souls the gastrointestinal horrors. I suggest you follow these directions to the letter:
- Add 1/2 stick butter, melted, and 2 eggs.
- Mix & bake at 350 degrees for 23-31 min.
- Eat another.
- Then one more before bed.
- Get pissed at yourself for eating too many.
- Exercise until guilty feeling disappears.
I did the “bake and eat” part of the directions, but not the “eat another and another, exercise, repeat phase”. I favor fudge brownies and these are chocolate with semi-sweet chocolate chips. If you’re a chocolate freak, they’re perfect for you. My taste buds were bombarded with a moist, chocolately, chocolate sensation. Not quite my style, but still very good.
Gluten free or not, I couldn’t tell the difference. Betty Crocker gets props for making a decent brownie. Go out and buy this if gluten-free matters to you. Then try Betty Crocker’s gluten-free Yellow Cake, Devil’s Food Cake, and Chocolate Chip Cookies.
