brownies...does it get any better?


Do you ever get hungry for something SWEET at bedtime ?

meee, too.
 BROWNIES...
FUDGE BROWNIES..
with PECANS...AND LOTS OF 'EM
 ..waiting now to get cool.. 
so I can ice them with 
FUDGE...and PECANS..



OOPS...could have sworn I had another package of pecans in the freezer. Must have used them another time...nearly didn't have enuf to put on top of these brownies...


I think we can manage to eat them even if they don't have enuf pecans on top...

The inside is all gooey and warm and chock full of nuts and goodness.

THESE are a box mix (if you tell anybody, I'll deny it )
...with the fudge icing included. 

I have one of the best brownie recipes I've ever tasted ....it belonged
to Mr. Sweet's mother.
Oh, my...her brownies  were an inch to an inch and a half thick...full of pecans and her fudge icing SHOULD go down in history as the
WORLD'S BEST...

Every now and then, I take the time to make HER BROWNIES...
but I also always keep a box of the delicious things in my pantry...
just in case we get the BROWNIE CRAVING at ......bedtime. !

Do you always make *from scratch* brownies or do you keep a box mix on hand, too? 

..dark, rich CHOCOLATE BROWNIES..
grab a glass of icy cold milk..
or a hot cup of tea
and have a bedtime treat, on me.
Hope your day tomorrow is gonna be a great one..

GOOD LUCK.

I have a from-scratch recipe that I love, but I will admit that I use Costco's Ghiradeli mix more often! Warm, gooey brownies--there's almost nothing better!

I would love to have a stash of these brownies in the house RIGHT NOW but I would probably eat all of them before Irene actually arrives. xo,

NanaDiana said...

I use the boxed mix most of the time! I DO hope you are going to share your Mom's recipe now that you have teased us with it!!! xo Diana

I use both. The from scratch are the best though. Now I have a craving for brownies! Could you bring a plate by? It's alot cooler in Michigan! I promise!

I love to have a box or two of brownie mix in the cupboard for those days when you just must have a little something chocolatey and gooey.

Oh boy am I too late, I could go for one of these delish brownies right now!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Sure sounds good to me, but I don't have anything here to whip them up with.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love Brownies and pecans! I do keep a box mix on hand! This looks so good, now I'm hungry for a brownie and a glass of milk.

Connie said...

I just discovered your blog and I must admit I ate a brownie with somne ice cold milk just before I got on the computer! Yours looks delicious. I have a favorite recipe but I always have a box or two handy just in case.

Always from scratch, brownies anyway.

Pondside said...

You'll be responsible for a whole lot of people making brownies at 10 at night!
I always have a box in the pantry for emergencies, but I love my old-time brownie recipe with home made frosting. I love the idea of putting pecans in the brownies - sounds yummy.

Donnie said...

I'm afraid, if Don had already gone to bed, I would eat that whole pan while absorbed in FoodNetworks show "Chopped". Then I would have to hide the evidence. I rarely make anything from scratch anymore so I do use a box mix for the grands when they are here. Looks yummy.

Theresa said...

Yummilicious! I keep boxes of mix in my pantry:) I buy them when they are on sale or I have a ginormous coupon! I have NEVER made them from scratch:) Have a blessed day dear BJ, HUGS!

TexWisGirl said...

you're so funny, making them at night! i'd have been hopped up on sugar and unable to sleep!

Debby said...

STOP it, you are making me hungry. I am too tired to go to the store. I looked at Trader Joes today for GF brownies.......I will have to go to the local store for Betty's mix......it is really good.
Enjoy.

Andi said...

Oh my gosh...those look amazing!!! Your blog was obviously calling me...or else it was the brownies! Hope all is well with you my friend!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

They look great BJ! Actually, brownies are the only thing I always buy a mix for-love it:@)

Holly said...

My husband is a brownie freak! Loves them and would have them for dessert every single night.

If there is ANYTHING sweet I crave, it IS chocolate! With all the delicious treats you whip up, no wonder Mr. Sweet is so "sweet." ;)
