With that said, I am hustling to catch up with the rest of the world getting ready as Christmas approaches. I have been searching for easy recipes that pack a big punch of flavor. It seems like parties are abound and holiday delights are on the menu even when we are all short on time. I came upon this recipe from one of my favorite Gooseberry Cookbooks from about five years ago. Such a simple recipe that is easy to edit and make it your own. For me, I absolutely love gingerbread! Mix it with chocolate and that makes me even happier! So mix up a creative batch of brownies that fits you and yours and have a very Merry Christmas from me to you!
Easy Gingerbread Brownies
1 box Dark Chocolate Cake mix (I used Duncan Heinz)
1 3.4oz box Gingerbread Pudding mix from Jello (I found this at Kroger's)
2 cups milk
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 13x9 baking pan with baking spray or shortening and flour. Mix together pudding and milk then add cake mix until well incorporated. Spread into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Once brownies cool sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost.
**The original recipe called for 3.4 oz box of chocolate pudding and 1 cup of chocolate chips, top with chocolate frosting. I can only imagine the chocolate heaven one would experience. I chose gingerbread for the holiday season.
