Cake Mix Peanut Butter Chip Brownies

Cake Mix Peanut Butter Chip Brownies

I am constantly caught without any brownie mixes and too many cake mixes in my pantry.  You’d think I would remember that we prefer brownies over cake.  The thing is, though, I know  that I can make brownies, cookies and bars with a cake mix with only a few little tweaks.  So, when cake mixes go on a good sale, I stock up.  That seems to happen more often than brownie sales.  These soft, fudgy brownies started from a devil’s food cake mix.  By increasing the oil and omitting the water, the mix baked up completely different than a regular cake.

I wanted a quick dessert and the gang wanted brownies.    By throwing in a bag of peanut butter chips, I had a treat that everyone in my family loved.  We are huge peanut butter and chocolate fans, so brownies with pb chips won the day.
