It can get a little stressful in my house when, Steve’s team, the Miami Dolphins is playing. But when they’re playing  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 and I have a favorite team, but somehow it’s just not the same. His anxiety level goes through the roof with anticipation.  I thought, how can I make this night a little better for him. I thought, how about one of his favorites, brownies! Because I’ve been busy myself, I didn’t know about the game being on tonight, and I’m short on time. I rushed up to the grocery store and picked up a really good box brand, and then added a few extra surprises to go in them. You know, take this box brand, and bump it up to the next level, by making it semi-homemade.

The brownie mix was double fudge and included a fudge pouch inside, but I’m 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 of a mixture of these chocolate morsels. I mixed that through 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 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. Then, 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.
