Brownie Snaps

Brownie Snaps

I needed an easy, quick cookie recipe that would make an 8-year-old kid roll his eyes with yummy pleasure. Demarion and his dad were coming to Tucson for four days. We would be in the car driving from one attraction to the next. Since snacks were absolutely necessary, I wanted a thin, crisp cookie with a minimum of crumbs.

I worked with a Betty Crocker brownie mix to which I added a handful of chopped walnuts. Real brownies are great, but too messy for a kid in a car. Here’s what you can do to make snaps:

Measure two cups of mix into a mixing bowl.

Follow the directions on the box but divide the ingredients in half.

Grease and flour a pan that measures about 11 x 15 inches. Long and low.

Pour the batter spreading evenly and into the corners.

Heat the oven and set the timer for about 10 minutes.

Let the brownies cool and crisp in the pan.

Cut into tiles or squares.

    I’ve been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is beautiful value enough for me. Personally, if all site
    owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the net will probably be much more
    useful than ever before.
