Better than Box Brownies

Don't get me wrong, I actually love box brownies (much to my mother's dismay), but these brownies beat them hands-down every time. Plus, they are super quick and easy to make. You can always add a little pizazz by serving them with ice cream and berries, or even adding chocolate chips and nuts. The next time you have a brownie craving tries these out and I guarantee you won't regret it!

1 2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
2 TBS water
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

In a mixing bowl beat together the sugar, butter, water, eggs and vanilla

In a separate bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.

Add the flour mixture to the batter and mix well.

Spread the batter evenly in a greased and lightly floured pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-25min until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Let the brownies cool for a few minutes, then cut them into squares and enjoy! These make a quick dessert that is always a crowd pleaser. They are nice and chewy like box brownies, but they are more decadent and delicious. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do! Enjoy!
