The Secret to Amazing Boxed Brownies
Now, this is the easiest thing in the world. All you need to do to turn those boxed brownies into a mass of gooey, heavenly chocolate is this:
Step 1: ignore the instructions on the box.
Step 2: Dump the dry brownie mix in a bowl.
Step 3: mix in just over 1/3 cup of milk, an equal amount of vegetable/cooking oil, and 1 (one) egg.
Step 4: Pour the mixture into a greased square pan (I think I always use a 9x9)
Step 5: Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
(to make things really awesome, mix in a few chocolate chips during step 3.)
One of my relatives made really good brownies from a box, and told me what the instructions were on the back... I think this is something very similar. I've done it with my boxed brownies ever since, and I'm telling you--it makes the brownies absolutely phenomenal.
