Originally I had planned to share with you today Bud’s girlfriend’s recipe for pumpkin pancakes. Unfortunately, browsing through the pantry today I discovered I was out of canned pumpkin. A trip to the grocery store and no pumpkin to be found in the canned vegetable aisle (I know, don’t send me emails, apparently canned pumpkin is on the baking aisle – I figured that out after I got back home).
So another browse through the pantry and I came up with the ingredients to make:
Dark Chocolate Brownies with Chocolate Mousse Frosting
(can you say PMS? I knew you could 😉 I’d love to say I made these from scratch, but I didn’t. if you have a scratch recipe for something similar please share!!
One box dark chocolate brownie mix (preferably the kind with dark chocolate chunks)
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup oil
One box chocolate mousse mix
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 325F. Follow directions on the box of brownie mix. Spread in an 8″ x 8″ pan and bake for 40-45 minutes.
While brownies are baking, make the mousse, following the directions on the box. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. This will also give the brownies time to cool off.
After brownies are done baking, take them out and let them cool in the pan, about 2 hours depending on the weather. Then take the mousse out of the refrigerator and using a spatula, cover the brownies with the mousse.
