The ongoing cookie challenge between Corinne from Wondermom Wannabe and myself has evolved into a brownie challenge. You may remember that the challenge started with my Oreo Surprise cookie and most recently included Corinne’s Pistachio White Chocolate Chip Cookies. Corinne shared that her children are singing my praises ala Bill Cosby (“Susan is great, she gets our mom weekly to bake”), but I’ve been feeling a little guilty instigating this sugar filled competition. I decided to work on a healthier brownie recipe for my submission to the challenge this week.
So in honor of St Patrick’s Day, I whipped up a batch of Leprechaun Treats, a healthier brownie from a box mix.
Now to be totally honest, if you are expecting a traditional brownie, this is not it. When I baked these yesterday, my children were excited that I was baking brownies, but then were disappointed because the texture and taste were different from what they were expecting. I knew what I was getting when I took a bite and I enjoyed these brownies. I recommend that you sell these as Leprechaun Treats rather than brownies to give them a chance at a better reception with your family.
Corinne, I hope your family likes these Leprechaun Treats a healthier brownie from a box mix! Now tag, you’re it. And feel free to take our challenge down the decadent-not-healthy-brownie path!
