After a week of high emotions and waking up this morning, feeling like I was at the end of my ropes, I did what any same person would do: I made brownies. Salted Caramel brownies, courtesy of Duncan Hines.
I am not ashamed to admit that I took the easy route. There was a box of brownie mix sitting in the pantry. I had completely forgotten it was there until my body remembered for me and proceeded to scream for it. So I took the brownie mix, added an egg, some water and vegetable oil and got to work.
The best part was adding the caramel. This was my first experience with marbling. I find it ironic that it was with a box mix, rather than a comprehensive recipe.
I don’t think I need to tell you how amazing the final product was. I mean, just look at it!
Next time, I will forgo the convenience of box mix and return to the endlessly satisfying experience of baking from scratch. I just had to share this wonderful indulgence. Not to mention, it gave me a reason to use my camera today. That is a win in my book.
P.s. Duncan Hines has nothing to do with this post. Just throwing that out there.
