Extraordinary Boxed Brownies!

Don't tell anyone but I'm using a boxed brownie mix! Yeah, I know.
"She goes to culinary school only to make boxed brownies".
Truth be told, when I make brownies scratch-made, I make them
for 30+ persons.  There are many brownie mixes out
there these days that aren't your every day boxed brownies.
What makes them extraordinary is
when "add-ins" are included altering the flavor profile...
Extraordinary Boxed Brownies!

For the brownies today, I used a boxed dark
chocolate flavored brownie mix.
The measurements you find on the box for the oil, water, and egg
remain the same.  What I added is 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
and 1/2 cup large-chopped macadamia nuts.

Extraordinary Dark Chocolate Brownies
Makes an 8x8 pan. Double recipe for a 9x13 pan.
1 (20 ounce) box dark chocolate brownie mix.
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/4 cup water
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line bottom and sides of an 8x8 baking pan with foil. Spray with nonstick cooking spray.  Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir with wooden until just combined.  Pour into prepared baking pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick in center comes out clean.  Cool completely before lifting the brownie from pan. Remove foil and cut into squares.

With all the hustle and bustle this holiday season,
why not use some tasty shortcuts?

I will be busy in the kitchen baking and prepping
for Wednesday's Christmas dinner so I will now
wish all of you a blessed Merry Christmas!
