Then And Now # 64 Betty Crocker Brownies

Betty Crocker Brownies are the subject of the day, seen here in a advertisement for the mix from 1954:

And, here is another, this one from 1956:
And one more ad from 1960:
Here is how the box looks today. Oh, but she has more than one variety available these days!

I felt like making brownies the other day.
So I did:
I am a chocoholic, and yes, I LOVE brownies!
I didn't use a mix. But I did use a recipe from this Betty Crocker cookbook:
So that counts, right?

Oh boy do those look yummy! I love them with walnuts. I am not a chocoholic, but I love brownies. Just give me a nice cold glass of milk to mellow out all the chocolate and I am good. I can see these for breakfast.... Love T

Stop it! Now what am I going to do? Not a morsel of sweetness in the house. Those look so good I may have to go buy a brownie mix. Betty Crocker or course!

Yummy--I make a great batch of brownies from a box of brownie mix and a can of black beans. You would never believe it, but they are delicious!! Yours look better, though...
