By now, you probably know that I’m a sucker for a sale. I just love getting things cheap, and free is even better. So each week when my grocery store lists their “buy one, get one free” deals, I’m sure to stock up. And that practice has lead to lots and lots of brownies…because it seems that each week another brand of brownie mix is on sale and I just can’t resist. My inability to pass up a sale was incredibly apparent last weekend as I tried to squeeze all my newly purchased brownie mixes in to my tiny cupboard.
With a surplus of brownie batter on my hands, I started thinking of other things that I could make with the mix – cake, dessert cups, bread…and then I had it. I
wanted needed to make brownie bread. But of course, I had no idea how. I hit the internet to find a recipe only to come up empty handed. Sure, people make chocolate flavored bread all the time, but I had a hard time finding people who had used a brownie mix. All of which left me wondering if it could even be done. Could you make bread from a brownie mix?
The result was a deliciously, gooey chocolate brownie bread, with a bit of a crunch to it. And it’s oh-so-easy to make. Seriously, go stock up on some brownie mix. I know what I’m going to do with the rest of mine!
Step 1 – Preheat oven to 350. Grease 9×5 loaf pan.
Step 2 – Prepare brownie mix as instructed on the box, using the “cake-like” brownie instructions (boxes typically have instructions for cake-like and fudge-like brownies, if yours doesn’t have two different sets of directions, just make them as indicated in the instructions).
Step 3 – Gently fold in the chocolate chips, then the almonds, then the marshmallows. Pour batter into loaf pan.
Note: The marshmallows will melt in the recipe (probably due to the lengthy time this bread is in the oven), but they are still very much there. This bread has a marshmallow-y goodness that’s baked right in. Keep this in mind when testing the bread to take it out of the oven though. I thought my bread was underdone, but it was actually the marshmallows!
