So, I feel like I’ve been a little obsessed with brownies lately. Maybe it’s all the running I’ve been doing – making me crave chocolate. I found the most amazing “cheat” brownies from Trader Joe’s. I’m sorry if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you – I hate it when recipes use “special” ingredients that you can’t get at the regular grocery store, but these are just too so special, I couldn’t help but share.
So these brownies. My best pal Mal told me about them and told me I HAD to try them. So I picked up a box and got around to finally trying them this past weekend. The cough box is called, “Brownie Truffle Baking Mix: Made with Dutch Cocoa and Chocolate Chips“. I should have known that these would be a hit because when I checked out at TJ’s, the cashier was telling me about how they had sold out in states like California because people were using his mix for their “special” brownies. I’m talking about Pot brownies.
These brownies are so easy to make and take little to no ingredients. Just a stick of butter, two eggs and the cough box mix. They are little pieces of fudgy, chocolaty goodness.
I’m pretty sure I will forever carry a box of these in my pantry for “in case of emergency” situations. So the good news? You can buy this mix online at Amazon for as little as $3.75 a box. Get to baking!
