Pillsbury Chocolate Chunk Fudge Brownies

They sound crazy decadent, don’t they?  Well, they are!  These ready-to-eat brownies are part of another package from MyBlogSpark, this time teaming up with Pillsbury.  The package came with a cake/brownie storage container, a cake decorating kit, 2 types of frosting – chocolate and cream cheese.  There was also a $25 gift card for Sam’s Club, which is the only place to get the brownies!  I was all in a panic at first, because I’m not a Sam’s Club member, and I don’t live near a Sam’s Club.  But we went to visit my godmother for the 4th (BTW — Happy 4th of July!!!!), and lo and behold, she is a member!  So before we came home today I stopped by her local Sam’s Club and got the brownies.  Here’s a pic of the package:

The brownies are $7.98 and have 42 servings to the package, so they are a pretty good deal.  Especially when you consider that most brownie mixes cost around $3.00 and only make 12-18 brownies!

Once we got them home we all took turns trying out the cake decorating kit.  My hubby made the border, and I did the rest, while my son directed the proceedings and ate any excess frosting.  So it wouldn’t make a mess, of course.  😛  Here is a picture of the finished product:

My first attempt at decorating a cake. Ever.

I think my son summed it up best when he said “Mommy, you have to practice a lot before you can do a cake challenge!”  Did I mention he watches a lot of Food Network?

Despite my lack of cake decorating skills, the brownies tasted marvelous.  They were moist and fudgy and rich, and every bite had at least one chocolate chunk.  With make-at-home brownie mixes I always add extra chocolate chips or chunks to make them richer.  Store bought brownies are never chocolatey enough for me – but these were!  Thanks to Pillsbury and MyBlogSpark for giving me the chance to try these!
