Serve the un­ex­pected with th­ese brownie-mix med­leys

Natural Solutions - - Publisher's Note -

With a bit of el­bow grease and a wave of a wand (err… spat­ula), brownie mix al­ways leads to mouth-wa­ter­ing good­ies—so by def­i­ni­tion it’s one of our fa­vorite things to have on hand. We love it so much that it was hard to be­lieve we could im­prove upon this stel­lar baker’s sta­ple. Step­ping up to the chal­lenge, we sought recipes that take al­ready-de­li­cious brownie mixes to the next level. Be­fore you call out “blas­phemy,” try th­ese fan­tas­ti­cally orig­i­nal brownie-mixbased con­fec­tions.



CRUST: ¾ cup gluten-free pret­zels 2 ta­ble­spoons sugar ¼ cup but­ter, melted

BROWNIE: 1 pack­age (21-ounces) Bob’s Red Mill

Gluten-Free Brownie Mix ½ cup but­ter, melted 3 eggs

FROSTING: 7 ounces sweet­ened con­densed milk 6 ounces choco­late chips ¾ tea­spoon vanilla ex­tract ¼ cup gluten-free pret­zels 1 ta­ble­spoon large-flake sea salt

To make the crust, pre­heat oven to 350 de­grees and grease a 9x9-inch bak­ing pan. Com­bine ¾ cup crushed gluten-free pret­zels, 2 ta­ble­spoons sugar, and ¼ cup but­ter. Press firmly into the pre­pared bak­ing pan to cre­ate an even layer. Bake for 8 min­utes. Re­move from the oven and al­low to cool while pre­par­ing brownie bat­ter. Place Gluten-Free Brownie Mix in a large bowl. Add ½ cup but­ter and eggs, and mix with an elec­tric mixer on medium speed un­til just com­bined. Spread brownie bat­ter evenly over the pret­zel crust and smooth top. Bake un­til a tooth­pick in­serted in the cen­ter comes out mostly clean, about 25 min­utes. Let cool com­pletely be­fore frosting. For the frosting, com­bine sweet­ened con­densed milk and choco­late chips in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Cook, stir­ring fre­quently, un­til choco­late chips are melted. Re­move from heat. Stir in vanilla ex­tract and then spread mix­ture over warm brown­ies. Sprin­kle with crushed gluten-free pret­zels and sea salt. Source: Bob’s Red Mill

PRO TIP: Use a food pro­ces­sor or blender to chop pret­zels into small pieces.
