Grandma’s Brownies

    My Grandmother has been baking these “Brownies” for years!
    It has been my dessert of choice when we went up to visit her at her Summer house on Lake Erie in Canada. I could eat the entire pan of these if I were left alone with them!
    I finally asked my Grandma for the recipe a few years ago and was shocked to find out that there was NO Brownies in the Brownies! She made it with a cake mix!

    Here’s what you need:
    1 box Devil’s Food Cake Mix
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup melted of butter
    1 box Fluffy White Frosting (This is hard to find – now only available online)
    1/2 cup walnuts (I substituted 1/2 cup white chocolate chips)
    1/2 cup chocolate chips

    Here’s what you do:
    Make the frosting according to the directions and let the mixer do it job! This is like Marshmallow Fluff and 7 minute icing combined. It it so good! 
    Combine the cake mix, melted butter and eggs in a bowl and stir to combine. It will be thick!
    Spread it out in a 9×13 pan.
    Add the frosting to the center of the pan, do not let it touch the sides of the pan.
    Sprinkle on the nuts and chocolate chips
    Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
    I used the white chips instead of the walnuts because I was taking this to my daughter’s school. After baking it, I regretted using the white chips because they turned brown and kinda burnt.  
    I didn’t care for it, but the kids LOVED them! 
    This is what was left over from kids. 

    When the “brownies” are done baking they are really puffed up and full of air. As they cool, they sink back down and compress. I wish the fluff would stay a but more fluffy… 
    Try it for your next pot luck treat! Guaranteed to be a hit!

    1. Oh my goodness,

      You're killing me! I sure hope you link this up this week. I can't wait to try these. Do you think you could use a different kind of frosting? I've never seen the box one and Amazon only sells it by the case. Have a great week.


    2. I just love the topping on these awesome brownies. I can't wait to make your recipe, it looks delicious! Hope you have a fabulous week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
      Come Back Soon!
