This recipe comes from a social media friend and comes highly recommended. This is the mix and the instructions to make the brownies, so sort of a 2 for 1 recipe. This mix as stated makes the equivalent of 1 store bought boxed mix. Recipe easily doubles, just use two batches of Mix and double wet ingredients, bake in a 9x13 baking pan. Use regular or mini chocolate chips; semisweet, dark, milk, or even white. Replace the chocolate chips with M&M candies or chopped Oreo cookies. Can also add ½ cup nuts, such as chopped walnuts, pecans, cashews, almonds.
