I like brownies, but generally I dont have time to make them from scratch. This is an easy way to dress up box brownies, and kill just about any sugar/chocolate craving you can imagine.

They come out ooey and gooey in the middle and candy/crunchy on the bottom. You can't beat that.

Oh gosh, these brownies are good. The middle is nice and gooey. The hot chocolate adds a slight crunch to the outside of the brownies. They're quick, easy and will be a big hit with everyone. The Test Kitchen
