How about something completely awesome yet very bad?
Inspired by Sydney Shop Girl who posted about finding the Ghirardelli Chocolate Brownie Mix at Costco, I made sure to pick up a box the last time I was there – which hilariously was the day before starting Lite N Easy a few weeks ago..
And what a box it is. Weighing in at a mammoth 3.4kg, it contains 6 premix brownie mixes.
I made two packets – one for my work, one for the Other Half’s work. I substituted the vegetable oil for coconut oil. I am a big fan of the coconut oil and will try to get it into any recipe where possible.
I don’t have a picture of the finished product – these must be baked for 45 minutes and by then I completely forgot to take a photo. By the time I thought of it today at work, they were *all* gone. I got emails about these brownies and people were dropping by my desk to ask me all kinds of questions about the recipe, so they must have been pretty darn awesome.
Me, I tried a tiny piece when they got taken out of the oven last night and they were still warm. Very tasty! Sorry I have lost the last Costco receipt so no idea on how much the box cost me – I know it seemed very cheap for the size of box. :)
Even though I did not buy a lot of food at our last costco visit we still spent $400 there. I did get some Christmas pressies for the nephews and nieces, though.
