    For a quick mix I just buy a box mix. Just as good if made from scratch!

    Oh yes, I will gladly share a recipe. I had found one for homemade brownies that was quicker than a box mix and my hubby really liked them. Well, I have lost the recipe!! I am in trouble, LOL! They were really good too.

    Here is a very simple and good recipe I go to time and time again. Actually stirred them up yesterday afternoon for supper and sent the leftovers home with DD and her family. It makes a 9x9 pan. I make the whole recipe in the pan I melt the margarine in.
    Brownies
    1/2 cup margarine, melt.
    Add 6 teasp cocoa and stir.
    Allow to cool down a bit.
    Add 1 cup sugar and 2 eggs, beat well
    Add 1 tsp vanilla, dash of salt and 1 cup flour.
    Mix well.
    Pour into parchment lined pan.
    Bake 325 no more than 20 min. Depending how fudgie you like them.
    Sometimes I ice them or sprinkle with icing sugar. Yesterday they were plain and great! (you can add chopped nuts or raisins if you like)
    If I want to bring them up a notch, when there is a couple min of baking time left I put a layer of either large marshmallows (halved) or minis on top. Place back in the oven for a minute or two until they puff a bit.
    Take out and when cool frost with chocolate icing, they are good.

    We use the Dump Bars recipe all the time. (I use 2/3 cup cocoa) You can also try peanut butter chips, or mint flavored chips on top. No need for frosting, and they stay moist and yummy.

    I generally prefer to use the Ghiradelli Brownie Mix. The Duncan Hines & Betty Crocker are okay.

    I would only make brownie mix brownies until I had these:

    BROWN SUGAR BROWNIES
    By: Land O Lakes
    Preparation time: 15 min Baking time: 25 min
    Yield: 24 brownies

    1 cup firmly packed Light Brown Sugar
    1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
    2 eggs
    2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts


    Heat oven to 325°F. Combine brown sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add melted chocolate; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour. Beat until well mixed. Stir in nuts.

    Pour batter into greased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake for 25 to 28 minutes or until brownies just begin to pull away from sides of pan. (DO NOT OVERBAKE.) Cool in pan; cut into bars.

    Nutrition Facts (1 brownie): Calories: 130, Fat: 9g, Cholesterol: 30mg, Sodium: 40mg, Carbohydrates: 12g, Dietary Fiber: 1g, Protein: 2g

    To use chocolate chips instead of unsweetened chocolate
    reduce sugar by 1/4 c to 3/4 cup
    reduce butter by 2 tbsp to 6 tbsp
    use 1 c chocolate chips

    Can be doubled to use 9x 13" pan. Bake 35 min.

    The secret seems to be the brown sugar and the butter. I haven't tried substituting cocoa for the unsweetened chocolate.

    I am going to give the brown sugar brownies a try. They are easy enough to do, too. Thanks for sharing.
