I’m not necessarily one to endorse using boxed mixes instead of baking from scratch, but there are certainly some decent mixes out there to choose from. Brownie mixes tend to be consistently good, for example, and it’s not bad to have one on hand for chocolate emergencies (especially if you have kids who don’t really want to wait around while you fiddle with butter and eggs for the real thing). But I’m not bringing up the newest Pillsbury baking mix because I am a mix fan. I’m bringing it up because I couldn’t resist mentioning the introduction of the first Funfeti Brownie Mix I’ve ever seen.
I adore Funfetti and started making the cakes with a boxed mix long before I baked in earnest. These days, I make it without a mix. Since funfetti cakes are simply cake with sprinkles stirred into the batter, I’m sure the brownie mix works the same way, so it’s not so much of an innovative product, as much as it is a fun one.
I might just have to try making my own Funfetti Brownies in the near future – without a mix, of course. It’s always fun to have a new way to include sprinkles in my baking.
