I tend to make desserts by the box, but I have found that if you just add one little thing, you get an entirely new, kid-friendly recipe. Seriously, why spend all that time doing the measuring when you can start any recipe with a preset and create amazing boxed cake mix hacks?
My kids are in LOVE with this Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Brownies recipe and it was so simple. Now, I have to keep brownie mix and Reese’s peanut butter chips on hand at all times. LOL!
While I am a straight junk food junkie, brownies tend to be my weakness. Though, I am pretty picky with them! My mom has always put frosting on brownies, so I find it strange to eat them without it. 🙂 Another picky, I don’t like nuts in my brownies! To me, that just ruins the gooey texture of perfect brownies!
