It can get a little stressful in my house when, Steve’s team, the Miami Dolphins are playing. If they’re scheduled to play the New England Patriots, well, that’s a whole different kind of worry. As a loyal fan, he takes game day very seriously. Don’t get me wrong, I love football too. I thought, how can I make this night extra special.

I thought, how about one of his favorites, brownies! Because I’ve been busy myself, I decided to take a little help from the store and make these semi-homemade.  I rushed up to the grocery store and picked up a really good box mix, and then added a few extra surprises to go into the brownies.

The brownie mix was double fudge and included a fudge pouch inside, but I’d add more goodies. Peanut butter, more chocolate chips, and some new Nestle pumpkin white chocolate chips. This should do it. All I did was to follow the instructions on the box. To the dry mix, I added in a 1/4 cup mixture of the semi-sweet chocolate and pumpkin morsels. I stirred in the morsels so they would be coated with the dry mix.

Next, I also added 1/4 cup of cold brewed coffee to the wet ingredients before combining them with the dry. Coffee really enhances the flavor of the chocolate.

Next, I slowly added the dry to the wet ingredients until they were just combined.  I poured the batter into a buttered greased 8 X 8 pan. Next, I took 1 cup of smooth peanut butter and placed spoonfuls randomly, all over the top. I took a large skewer and swirled the peanut butter through the batter. This way every bite would have some of that creamy peanut butter. Finally, I sprinkled the top with a few more of the different flavored chocolate chips. I baked this according to the package and that was it.

This worked out great!  It didn’t take that much longer to add these extra ingredients. The fact that I started out with a really good box mix and just added a few extra special ingredients gave Steve the impression that they were made from scratch. I made store bought brownies seem as though they were homemade and without spending a lot of time that I didn’t have.
