Mom's Brownie Mix Recipe


Momís Brownie Mix makes great brownies. Thatís not all, however. This versatile mix can be used for a chocolate crust in cheesecakes, and combined with other ingredients to make wonderful cookies. The different flavors of brownies that can be made with this mix are limited only by imagination. The Basic Mix makes four 8 x 8Ē or 9 x 9Ē size batches of brownies. Once baked and cooled, the brownies can be dusted with powdered sugar or frosted with chocolate frosting.

What are the advantages of making Momís Brownie Mix at home? Besides the fact that itís much cheaper to make this mix at home (and who isnít looking to save money?), organic ingredients may be used. In addition, making the mix from scratch will insure that fresh ingredients are used; who really knows how long those store-bought mixes have been sitting on the grocery shelves, or how long the mixes were in the grocerís warehouse before appearing on the shelves? Who really knows how long the ingredients sat before they were manufactured and packaged? Once packed to ship, how long did they sit in a warehouse before they were actually shipped to the store ? You get the picture!

4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups cocoa
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups shortening
  1. Mix sugar, cocoa, salt, and flour in bowl.

  2. Cut in shortening until the mixture looks like cornmeal.

  3. Store the Brownie Mix in an airtight container in a cool dry place; it will keep 4-6 months.

Basic Brownies


For cake-like brownies, use a little more mix; for gooey brownies, use a little less. Both ways, the mix makes quick great brownies
