Betty Crocker Brownie Giveaway!

 This fall, warm your family’s hearts and home with a fresh-from-the-oven treat that won’t have you spending hours in the kitchen. New Milk Chocolate Traditional Brownie mix from Betty Crocker® can help you simplify your brownie baking regimen and get a head start on homemade.


  • With just the right touch of milk chocolate flavor, your family will love the traditional homemade brownie taste that can be ready in three easy steps.
  •  Look for Betty Crocker Milk Chocolate Traditional Brownie mix in the baking aisle of grocery stores this fall.
MyBlogSpark and Betty Crocker sent me this lovely prize pack that was to include one Betty Crocker® Milk Chocolate Traditional Brownie mix, a Betty Crocker apron, cookie sheet, and mixing spoon. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the “cookie sheet” was in actuality a Wilton 9” X 9” covered baking pan.
This weekend I made that package of brownies and they turned out perfect. Well, we didn’t eat them yet. The reason is kind of an “oops.”

I decided to use frosting left from Theo’s birthday cake to frost the brownies. Yummy…frosted brownies. Well, the frosting was mostly milk chocolate colored with a little bit of bright blue I just dumped in one container. I figured I would add some more cocoa powder and it would mix into a lovely chocolate frosting.

Guess what?! If you mix ¾ light chocolate colored frosting with ¼ bright blue, add a tablespoon of cocoa powder and mix it all together and it turns out…..

Army Green! Yes, lovely dark olive colored. I didn’t think it was THAT olive colored, so I dumped it on the cooled brownies. Yep, it did look THAT olive!

So, I had a brilliant…if I do say so myself…idea! Chance is coming home from Afghanistan early in October. So I decided to freeze the pan of brownies and when he gets home, I will decorated it with a “Welcome Home” message and take it to his welcome home party. I will be making other stuff, but thought the accidental frosting color would work just fine.

MyBlogSpark and Betty Crocker have offered one of my lovely readers a prize pack of their own! The giveaway winner’s prize pack will contain: One Betty Crocker® Milk Chocolate Traditional Brownie mix prize pack which includes a Betty Crocker apron, cookie sheet, and mixing spoon.

How cool is that?!

Great minds think alike! Last night, I was thinking that since the brownies are frosted in dark olive that when it comes time to decorate, I will make a lighter olive and make it camo frosted. Then add some decorations!!

We are all Sooper Geniuses, or is is genii?

I would make brownies for myself because I am selfish like that ;P
But I would be generous enough to share with my girls as long as they don't go near MY corner pieces!

I would make brownies for my 3 kids. We like to eat them warm out of the oven in a coffee mug with cold milk on top with a spoon. YUMMO! I really want brownies now :)
