Making My Own- Brownie Mix


Valerie made it into Week Three of So You Think You're Crafty!  Thanks for your votes and support!  Please take a minute when you're done here to check out this week's projects and vote for your favorite.  The theme is "Knock-Off", and there are some great projects as usual!

Next, I wanted to take a minute and let you know about something fun we'll be doing next week.  You know how you buy craft supplies for a project and then you have leftovers?  And what usually happens to those leftovers?  If you're like us, they usually sit around in your house, taking up space.  Well, we've challenged ourselves to come up with a project using ONLY supplies we already have.  We're calling it our "Make It Work" series (thanks Tim Gunn!) and will be sharing our projects the last week of each month.  If you'd like to play along, we'll be hosting a "Make It Work" party on our Facebook page all next week, so get out your leftover supplies and start crafting!

Now, on to today's post:

A friend of mine on Facebook re-posted a picture and recipe for a simple homemade brownie mix. I knew I had to give it a try and see if it was worthy of a Making My Own post! I even happened to have everything on hand which made this much cheaper than a box mix!

For the dry mix, combine:
1 Cup sugar
1/2 C flour
1/3 C cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

When you're ready to make some brownies, just add your eggs, oil and vanilla as indicated on the bag and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. This makes an 8x8 pan of brownies, which my kids DEVOURED. I made another batch this weekend and added about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and they were even yummier! I wouldn't say these were the best brownies I have ever had, but considering the cost of these vs. the box mix, I would make these every time. Yum!

  1. I have always thought about making our own mixes and keeping 'em on hand and I love the idea of starting with brownies (Alex's favorite :D) I'm book marking this recipe! Thanks for sharing it at our Sunday Show and Tell!

  2. VALERIE.... LOVED the Darth Vader. Just had to let you know.
