Adventures with Brownie Mix

A few weeks ago, I got this brownie mix from Trader Joe's.

Today I decided to make it, but me being me, I had to tweak it a bit. First off, it called for an entire stick of melted butter. Really? 1/2 a cup of butter? I added 1/4 cup + 1/2 cup applesauce.

Then I wanted to add 500 things. Like coconut. Or walnuts. Or caramel. Or raspberries! Raspberries won. (I thawed some frozen ones, then drained out most of the liquid, and then smushed out some more liquid so they were relatively dry.) I added them in small spoonfulls, then swirled them into the batter.

This lower-fat version took about an extra 15-20 minutes, but it was totally worth it.

Verdict? Very tasty, and only stuck to the pan a little bit!
