Pantry Staple: Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix

I know it is rather easy to make brownies from scratch and I do so on occasion but sometimes you just want a brownie as fast as possible and in those circumstances, it pays to have a good brownie mix in your pantry.

My favorite is the Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix which I buy from Costco. It is also readily available in many stores, including on Amazon .

I love brownies.

I like them plain. I like them with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. I like them with a drizzle of caramel and toasted hazelnuts. I like them studded with walnuts and mini marshmallows. I like them swirled with cream cheese.

I like them in muffin form, in bars and in dessert sandwiches.


Now here comes the confession part of this pantry staple review. My favorite part of brownies are the chewy edges.

So when we make a pan of brownies. After they have cooled, I cut off all the edges and put them in a separate box. I am not so proud to say that I do not share them with my husband or the kids. It’s a little selfishness I allow myself to indulge in.

Don’t feel too bad for my husband or kids because the rest of the brownies are delicious so they aren’t really missing out. And whenever any of them see me sneak a piece, they always get a share. So I’m not completely depriving my kids in particular from coming to appreciate the best part of a brownie.


All this said, maybe I better invest in one of these pans:
