What? Where do I get these post titles from?
Anyway. If you are my neighbor- spoiler alert– you are getting brownies for Christmas. I’ve already decided.
Molly is part of American Heritage Girls – a faith based scouting program for girls. She LOVES it. At their last meeting, with their focus on ‘cherishing family’, the girls made a dry brownie mix to bring home and share with their families. Well, I sure did feel cherished- those brownies were GOOD! So good that we’ll be giving that mix to our neighbors for Christmas this year. Forget the Mini-Cinnis of years past. Time for something new. This is also a great brownie recipe to have on hand. Once you see how easy these are, you’ll never need a box mix again!
I think I’ll split each recipe in two to give as gifts, making two 8×8 pans. I hope it will fit in a jar with cute Christmas ribbon! Here’s the recipe:
Pathfinder Brownie Mix
makes one 9×13 pan of brownies
Dry Mix Ingredients:
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2/3 c. cocoa powder
2 1/4 cups sugar
Combine all and place in a ziplock (or gift container, etc.)
To make brownies, add to dry mix:
3/4 cup of melted butter (1 1/2 sticks)
4 eggs, lightly beaten
(maybe 1 or 2 tsp. vanilla extract, although the recipe didn’t say this)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9×13 baking pan. Empty brownie mix into a bowl and stir to combine. Stir in melted butter and eggs. Mix thoroughly. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely in pan before cutting.
What a cutie! Can’t believe we’ll be celebrating her 6th birthday this year.
