I'll admit I'm not the biggest fan of plain brownies, but what I appreciate about them is the versatility and the numerous ways I can twist them up to make something even more delicious. Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and Alan loves brownies, I decided to twist up a box mix of plain brownies.
Alan and I don't exchange gifts for Valentine's Day, but I do try to make a dessert that I know he'll love. Of course, that means that the guys he works with benefit, as well since I send the leftover dessert with him to work the next day. Needless to say, the co-workers love that I make so many different desserts for the blog. :)
I used a box of brownie mix because some days it just makes life a lot easier to use the mix and add a few extras to whip up a batch of tasty brownies. Before I decided on making brownies for Valentine's Day, I checked out the Kraft Recipes site and browsed for inspiration. There are so many great chocolate and chocolate fondue recipes on the site. If you're not a fan of chocolate, like me, then be sure to check out the strawberry cake recipes.
I twisted up my box of brownie mix by adding some vanilla pudding, white chocolate chips and a bit of PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese.
