So today, I was in a pickle. I had a brownie-making request from The Madre, and there was not a brownie mix in sight! Yes, yes, I could have concocted my own delicious creation, but alas, I was feeling quite lazy today.
So a-Googling I went, and looked up "cake mix brownies". And lo and behold, I found them! And they were delicious! Okay, not better than ooey, gooey homemade brownies or these Brownies of Amazingness from a month or so ago, but for a quick fix, they were pretty darn good. I kicked the recipe up a notch and added a generous portion of chocolate chips into the batter. I'm sure other things like M&Ms, peanut butter chips, peanut butter, cream cheese, walnuts, and coconut would be delicious in them, too. Use your imaggot-nation.
Lazy Girl [or Guy] Cake Mix Brownies
1 chocolate cake mix
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Mix up all of the above, after preheating the oven to 350 degrees, of course. Spray a 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray, plop the batter in, and cook 'em up for about 20-25 minutes, or until top is set and a toothpick comes out clean.
