6 of 101 Things to do With a Cake Mix

Time for the next installment of 101 Things to do with a cake mix. In case you forgot.....
I'm going through this little cook book and making every recipe.....
Why? For fun!

Chewy Brownies
  • 1 chocolate cake mix
  • 1/2 cup margarine, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together cake mix, margarine, and eggs until the cake mix is completely absorbed. Stir in chips and nuts. Press the stiff dough evenly into a greased 9x13-inch pan.

Bake 26-30 minutes. When cooled, cut into squares and serve.

These were good. Very moist and rich.

Somebody told me a long time ago that brownies originated when someone put too much water into their cake recipe. Makes sense, huh?
Your's look delicious!

I probably already told you but I have that cookbook too and I love it. My favorite is the cheesecake bars. They are delicious! Those brownies look so yummy. I haven't tried them yet.
