Nestle Toll House Cookie Brownie Delight

Nestle Toll House Cookie Brownie Delight


So I've made Betty Crocker cookie brownies only once before, a long time ago. They were really good and pretty easy to make. I had a coupon for the Nestle Toll House mix, so I decided to try these. Again, not hard to make at all, and they tasted good too. The only issue I had with them is that for the price you pay, you really don't get much out of it. I think it's like 4-5 bucks a box, which is why I only bought them with a coupon. But anyways, now that I know how to make them, I think I'll just do it on with my own cookie dough and brownie mix, and make a bigger batch for a cheaper price. Directions and pictures are below. :)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Grease an 8x8 pan or muffin pan.
  2. In one bowl, pour the brownie package in. In another bowl, pour the cookie package in.
  3. Melt 4 tablespoons of margarine. Pour into the brownie mix. Add two tablespoons of water. Mix the batter well.
  4. In the cookie mix bowl, pour in 5 tablespoons of melted margarine. Add 1 tablespoon of water, then mix well.
  5. In the muffin pan (which is what I chose), pour in the brownie batter a little less than halfway up the cup. Continue throughout the pan.
  6. Ball up cookie dough, then place on the brownie batter and pat down.
  7. Bake in the over for about 20-22 minutes.
Pictures are below, y'all come back now, ya hear?! ;)

Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Cinnamon Baked Doughnuts

I know I haven't posted in a while; I've been pretty busy. But I did find some time to make something and blog about it. I made these baked cinnamon sugar donuts from the Barefoot Contessa on Food Network, and you can check out the link here. Overall, these donuts came out amazing and really weren't difficult to make. They're baked, not fried, so that's also a plus. I didn't really know how they would turn out. The last time I made donuts, it was a disaster... I didn't even blog about them like I was planning too because they were so bad. But anyways, these donuts came out great, and I was very impressed with them. Directions and pictures are below!

Directions: 


  1. Preheat oven to 350, spray or grease two donut pans. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of all purpose flour, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  3. In another smaller bowl, combine 1 beaten large egg, 1 1/4 cup of whole milk, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and 2 tablespoons of butter melted, but cooled.
  4. After both bowls have been mixed separately, combine them and mix together.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the donut pans, not all the way to the top, but 3/4 of the way.
  6. Place in the oven for 14-15 minutes. When you press your finger on them, they should spring back.
  7. While they're cooking, melt one stick of butter. (I used margarine because I was out of butter. However, I did use butter for step 3)
  8. In a small, shallow bowl, yet wide enough to dip the donuts, mix 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. You may need to add more throughout. I ended up with 15 donuts instead of 12.
  9. Then after the donuts have cooled, go ahead and dip the donuts lightly (don't soak) in the melted butter or margarine, then roll or dip them in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  10. My pictures are below. Y'all come back now, ya hear? :D
