I think many of us like to read to relax. If I read in bed, I can usually only make it through a few pages before I am out. Apparently, it runs in the family::
This is what I found last night when I went to check on him! If you’ll notice, he has a little smudge of chocolate on his chin. OK, so I’m not a perfect mother whose kid goes to bed perfectly clean every night..oh well!
Last night I made THE MOST AMAZING BROWNIES EVER!! Seriously, I’ve had this recipe bookmarked for over a year. I found it yesterday and gave it a try. It is SO easy but SO wonderful! YOU have to try them!!
I will never buy a box of brownie mix again…EVER…this is so much better and easier!
Here’s the recipe::
Triple Fudge Brownies
1 chocolate cake mix in a box (I used milk chocolate)
1 pkg instant chocolate pudding mix (small)
1 12oz pkg chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)
2 cups Milk
Directions: Set oven @ 350 degrees. Whisk milk and pudding together. Add in chocolate cake mix (if you don’t have a mega mixer like mine & are using a reg. whisk you may need to switch to a spoon as you continue to add cake) and stir until no lumps/clumps. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour into a greased pan and bake for 30 min. or until top springs back. (my oven cooks fast, I only baked for about 23 minutes. I like my brownies a little gooey in the middle though)
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and/or serve with vanilla ice cream
I forgot to sprinkle w/ powdered sugar and they were still amazing!

Sounds Yummy!!! My kids LOVE brownies. I’ll have to give this a try! He is so cute:)
I was so excited to see that you would never buy a box of brownie mix again since we don’t have brownie mix here. And I was all ready to try the recipe since I’m baking brownies for a bake sale tomorrow. And then I read cake mix in the recipe. Such disappointment since we don’t have cake mix here either! I actually have a box or two of chocolate cake mix from the U.S., so I may try this recipe later. Just not for the bake sale. 🙂
Thank you thank you…your receipe is a god-send!! I am having guests tonight and I should be cleaning my house…but I am of course reading blogs!! 🙂 Now I know what I can make for tonight!! Thanks again!!
Umm those do sound good. I will have to give them a try. Brownies are my weakness. Along, with cookies, cakes, real food, and pretty much any other type of food.
I was afraid you were going to say you made them….they sound aamazing…I was going to ask you for the recipe.
I am un-American and am not a huge fan of chocolate, but I know Gerod would love these! Thanks for the recipe… and the pic is beyond precious! He is adorable!!! 🙂
we r big brownie fans – so i will be trying these. thanks for sharing.
So glad you came by! That picture is really adorable. Lately our son has wanted to sleep with his toys and books — came out of nowhere. It’s so cute though!!
How adorable!!Those brownies sound killer. I think you should test how well they hold up in travel. Like shipping to california???:)
What a cutie pie! I don’t fall asleep reading, but it does help me wind down a little bit. Those brownies sound amazing…but all you had to say was the words “double fudge”…enough said!
oh excuse me…TRIPLE FUDGE!!!
That is so adorable! What a great picture…especially from a Reading Teachers point of view! :0 Thanks for the recipe…I’ll have to give it a try.
