Better than a Box Brownie Mix

5 / 5 (1 review) 4 Comments

One easy way to save money is to make your own mixes instead of buying the ready made ones at the store.

This takes less than five minutes to put together and saves time and money!  I figure this large batch of brownies costs me about $0.50 to make compared to the $2.39 or more it would cost in the store!

  • To Prepare

  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 3 eggs

  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients and place in a jar, container or ziploc bag. Then on the container or bag I would write the following instructions:
  2. Add

  3. 1 cup melted butter (or 1 cup Vegetable oil)
  4. 3 eggs
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  6. Mix until well combined. Grease a 9×13 pan.
