Better Budgeting: Lush and Easy Brownies

Lush and Easy Brownies

Readers' Recipes (featured column)
submitted by Carol Sue

I want to share this recipe because it is so yummy, economical and fast. Often I need a quick and easy cheap dessert for a potlucks, grandkids, or just to treat neighbors. A 13x9-inch cake pan of moist lush and yummy brownies is just what the doctor ordered. You know, doctor said chocolate is a health food.

*  *  *


1 box of brownie mix (store brand)

1/2 - 1 can of frosting (store brand)

Note: I buy Walmart or Winco's store brand, whatever is on sale, and stock up. I use the milk chocolate frosting since the kids working at Domino's Pizza across the street like that best. German Chocolate frosting or Vanilla are good choices too.


Prepare brownie mix as directed on box. Bake. Remove from oven, spread frosting on hot brownies.

Optional: Immediately scatter brownies with nuts or sprinkles if desired (less is better here). Serve warm or cool.
