The Baked Goods — and Bads
From potlucks to bake sales and every occasion in between, brownies are a crowd pleaser. Sure, we've got a favorite from-scratch recipe, but sometimes you just can't beat a boxed brownie mix for convenience. They're a real time saver, especially if you happen to get those cravings where you just need a chocolate baked good RIGHT NOW (no judgment here!). So in an effort to find the best boxed brownie mix, we tried seven popular brands, prepared them according to the package directions, baked them in the same pan each time, and tasted the results. Here are the fudgy brownie mixes you should absolutely put in your shopping cart, along with the ones you shouldn't waste your money on.
