Chocolate Friday - Basic Brownie Mix


We all want warm chocolate over the cooler months coming up. And what better way to get our warm chocolate fix with a plate of gooey, luscious brownies? Yum.

Here's an inexpensive way to whip up a batch whenever the mood strikes. No need to go buy a box of brownie mix at the store. Make your own at home. (Unless you regularly stock up anyway).



Basic Brownie Mix
(Makes 6-8 batches of brownies)

6 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 teaspoons salt
8 cups sugar
8-ounce can unsweetened cocoa powder

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well, and then transfer to a large container with a lid. Label and date the contents. Store in a cool, dry place. Use within three months.

To make a single batch of brownies:
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup margarine, melted
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/4 cups Basic Brownie Mix
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour an 8-inch square baking pan. Combine wet ingredients and mix well. Add brownie mix and stir well. Optional: stir in nuts. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes.

Enjoy!

Now head over to Lisa's for more chocolate!


Until next time...

Sounds yummy, buy my favorite way to have chocolate is in my hot cocoa. I'm an addict, even in the summer I have to have my daily cocoa.

Jen T. That is really funny. I am catching up here and I see that you have brownies on your post here and I had brownies on my post for Sunday. It must be the season. I like the idea of making up a bunch of mix all at once. The only catch is that we would eat a lot more than we probably should::)
