Making Boxed Brownies Better

Chocolate is my ambrosia. I love it big time. But not everyone has the time to make brownies from scratch. That doesn't mean you can't have a fabulous dessert. As my mom would say, you just need to add a little love, which in our house, means a few extra ingredients. Here's what I use to make my brownies taste more like homemade:

  • Add milk instead of water

  • Add one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Top cooled brownies with milk-chocolate icing

If I want to make the presentation look nice, I'll cut the brownies into little squares and put them in pretty cupcake papers (this set of baking cups from IKEA is $.99 for 65 and adorable).
