Making a bulk batch of this Master Brownie Mix will not only save you money, it lets you make delicious treats at a moments notice, and control the ingredients over those store bought convenience mixes!
This can be made with regular sugar or a sugar substitute for a sugar free brownie mix. I made mine with Splenda, but you can choose any sweetener that measures the same as sugar for baking. (You could even do half sugar half Splenda for a low sugar /lower calorie brownie if you wanted too!)
Jan's tip:I made only half a batch today, since we are empty nesters and won't be feeding hungry kids anytime soon! So my picture of the mix is half of the recipe you'll be making!

My favorite optional topping for the brownies:
(based on an 8 " square pan)
Sprinkle 1 cup choc. chips onto warm brownies. warm for a minute in oven till melted then spread evenly over brownies. Sprinkle chopped nuts on top if desired.
