Heavenly Brownies

Instead of trying to make a dent in the clutter around my house while my son napped this afternoon, I decided to declutter my hotmail inbox. In so doing, I spent a little quality time in a newsletter from AllRecipes and discovered Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies. They seemed easy enough, so I decided to make them after dinner tonight.

Holy cow! I'm in the middle of my second square hot out of the oven and I can't get over how delicious (and easy to prepare) they are. After following the directions to the T (including walnuts), I added mini chocolate chips and drizzled with caramel per some reviewers' suggestions before cooking. I used an 8 x 8 pan and forgot other reviewers had said cooking time would be 30 minutes versus 20. So I wound up checking on them every 5 minutes after the initial timer went off at 20 minutes, and took them out at 32.

Thanks to the engineering geniuses at Kraft, I was able to squirt a generous amount of my beloved Cool Whip from a can onto this delectable treat. Fantastic! And they're easy enough you can justify doing more than just opening a box.

Pictures to come once I find my camera cord.
