Best Box Brownies

Run, don’t walk, to the grocery store and buy this brownie mix. Grab a pint of vanilla ice cream, too. Make a batch and eat them while they’re still warm. Perfect blend of chewy with crispy edges. Brownie heaven. Got a sweet tooth? Try berry crisp, chocolate mug cake or easy cinnamon bread.
