It’s almost Thanksgiving, but I figured some people might just want yummy, delicious brownies 🙂
These brownies are outstanding and do not use a box mix. You may be skeptical – but try them. You’ll never go back to a mix again. I made these using Ghiradelli cocoa. Normally having all the ingredients on hand is also a big bonus! The Dark Chocolate Betty Crocker Brownie Mix ingredients contain: Partially Hydrogenated Soybean and/or Cottonseed Oil (and hydrogenated = trans fats usually though anything less than .5 grams can be counted as “0” on the nutrition facts) and “artificial flavor” … whatever that means.
Note: you can halve this recipe just fine and fits great in a 9×9 pan.

Saw this on Money Saving Mom comment, thanks for at least the icing recipe! I haven’t made-from-scratch brownies ever but looking forward to trying. But to my husband, brownies are not brownies without frosting. 🙂
