In thanks for all the loving support displayed by readers in response to my last post, I have decided to give away the second greatest treasure I have in my possession–the coveted secret of Katrina’s Scrumptious Fudge Brownies.
I rarely cook.* I don’t know the difference between searing and braising. I can’t pronounce the names of half the spices in my cupboard and I have more takeout menus in my kitchen than recipes. So I’m not bragging when I tell you that my brownies are the stuff of legend. Gooey, delectable squares of pure chocolate love that I like to give away to people who make the world a better place (and/or shower me with expensive gifts.)
Now, for the first time ever, I am ready to share the closely guarded secret of my single culinary achievement:
…wait for it…
Walmart Great Value Fudge Brownie Mix.
You heard me.
Mix according to the directions on the box–two eggs, a half cup of oil, a quarter cup of water. If you’re feeling frisky, add some chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Hide the box.
Yes, that’s right. I’m a Great Value Girl. Now you know. Go forth and multiply the goodies.
*Don’t feel sorry for Paul. There are compensations for this particular lack of wifely proficiency.
