Make a "Wow-Factor" Dessert in 10 Minutes!


It is well documented that I love to be in the kitchen. One of my favorite pastimes is finding new and different ways to create all kinds of treats for my family. For me, there's a definite mix of from-scratch recipes and easy-to-make favorites in my baking arsenal. Sometimes I need to spend lots of time creating the perfect recipe, and sometimes I just need a 10-minute baking break!

But, I'll tell you one thing: if I'm going to use a shortcut mix to make a treat, it better be good.  And right now, I'm loving some of the fun new flavors that are available in the baking section of the grocery store.  You can find all kinds of unique desserts that are easy to make and delicious!


Emmie and I experimented with the new Pillsbury™ Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® Brownie Mix a couple of weeks ago...and y'all. Y'ALL.  If you are a fan of the Girl Scouts® Thin Mint® Cookies, you absolutely have to try Pillsbury™ Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® Brownie Mix.  These are so insanely good! 



These brownies are rich, decadent, and have chunks of chocolate all throughout.  The mint flavor mixed with the richness of chocolate brownies is out of this world.  And the best part: these brownies are so easy to make!  Emmie and I had these in the oven in less than 10 minutes.


You would never know that this mix came from a box.  This truly tastes like one of those crazy Pinterest-inspired recipes that is totally made from scratch.  This is a great fake-out idea for when you're short on time and need a dessert with "wow factor."


We can't wait to try the other products in the new Pillsbury® Girl Scouts® baking line!  They offer Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® Brownie and Cupcake mixes, Caramel Coconut Cupcake, and Caramel Coconut Blondie as well.  

You can now get Pillsbury's® Girl Scouts® Baking Mixes at most major retailers, including Target and Walmart.  Want more information on this line? Visit their website, Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram pages!
