Trader Joe’s Brownies


I’m pleased to announce that Trader Joe’s Truffle Brownie Mix is kickass. There’s bits of chocolate chips in every bite!

I made a batch last night for our weekly Project Runway girls night and  they were a hit!  I ate two brownies before I even left my house.  *slaps wrist*  That’s why I brought a *plate* of them to my friend’s house…. No evidence of the ugly gouged corners.

Just follow the instructions (add 2 eggs and a stick of butter).  And then be a rebel like me and add an Andre-the-Giant sized handful of chopped pecans/walnuts/what-have you.   Do it. Do it.

And then save yourself a little corner piece to have with your morning coffee….because it was such a wonderful way to start a gloomy rainy today.  Imagine living in a world where brownies for breakfast was the norm…

    We just made these the other day and oh yea…they’are awesome.
    We’ve moved 200 miles away from our Trader Joe’s ~ so sad ~
    but a nice day trip to visit friends and shop!!

    I’m running to the pantry right now… I think I bought this mix a few weeks ago…OMG, I did!!! I’m going to make them today. (I was going to Trader Joe’s today anyway, but thanks for the reminder.)

    I love your blog Tracy. It makes me want to be your BFF. Not in a stalkery knda way, just in a friendly kinda way. 🙂

    Mmm, brownies for breakfast!

    I made the brownies and a recipe for breaded pork chops from Smitten Kitchen. Mmmmmmm. I think I could die and go to food heaven right now. Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂

    Lol! Actually, it’s a tradition in our household to eat cake/pie/whatever-miscellaneaus-dessert-that-happens-to-be-lying-around for breakfast. It never occurred to me until I grew up that this might be abnormal (I mean really, is it that much worse than the alternatives?).

    Thanks for the rec – I’m tempted to pick these up for the company coming over tomorrow! Better yet, I should make them when no one’s coming over . . .
