How To Make Easy Gourmet Brownies From a Mix

Do you ever have those freak out moments? You know, when the phone rings and a few friends are just going to stop by.

In a panic your mind quickly drifts to two things (or at least mine does)...

1) Do we have wine?
2) I don't have anything fancy for them to eat.

And then in a moment of sheer joy (or complete chaos), you happen to find that store bought brownie mix. You know, the one collecting dust in the back of your cabinet. You bought that mix with the intent of getting yourself out of a jam, such as this, but for some reason it just seems boring.

Thankfully over time, I've learned a quick and easy way to jazz up that good old box of Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge brownies so they look like Ina Garten whipped them up.

And trust me, as soon as your destroy the evidence and serve them up in a cute pan, they'll think you slaved for hours....

Major win, my friends.


Yes, it's that simple, and the brownies turn out AMAZING! I made this this weekend and I had 3 people ask for the recipe (hehehe).

All you need is a few things on hand to turn drab into fab in no time flat!

I think it would be fun to scratch the PB swirl and add crushed up Oreos, or maybe marshmallow + nuts (Rocky Road anyone?) for a different gourmet take.

Happy baking, ladies!

  1. That sounds awesome! And yeah, super easy. Which is impressive that I would say that since I'm the worst person in the kitchen EVER.

  2. Oh they look divine!!

  3. Well aren't you smart?! Love this idea! :)

  4. I think we've all been there before!! I'm excited to try this! Thanks!

  5. I'm guilty of this, this past weekend. I made brownies for a friend's birthday night out and when I got them out, one of the ppl asked if they were from scratch and I said, "duh, what else would I use" and they believed it!! :)

  6. These look awesome! I love peanut butter and chocolate :) Thank you for sharing!
