Overview

In Cookie Dough Delights, Camilla V. Saulsbury worked magic with refrigerated cookie dough. With Brownie Mix Bliss, she turns her attention to the familiar box of brownie mix and the many possibilities contained therein.

Incredibly, all 175-plus recipes in Brownie Mix Bliss begin with a standard box of brownie mix. What's more, all the recipes have been streamlined for easy, everyday baking. The problem, if you can call it that, will be deciding which treat to make first:

Mocha Buttercream Brownies?

Or Snickers Supreme Brownies?

Or maybe Mint Julep Ganache Brownies?

And that's but the tip of the chocolate iceberg. While brownie mix can be used to create all manner of mouthwatering concoctions, it can also be transformed into countless other very easy, very chocolatey desserts ranging from sophisticated biscotti, souffle cakes, madeleines, and cheesecakes to nostalgic drop cookies, ice cream novelties, gooey layered bar cookies, and so much more.

In addition to the recipes, Saulsbury offers "Brownie Points," or tips for baking success. For the accomplished baker as well as the novice, Brownie Mix Bliss takes the chocolate dessert to a new level, of well, bliss!

What a neat book. I've had great success with the Turtle brownies, chocolate cherry crisp and Dulce de Leche Cream bars. Easy to follow, well-written, readily available ingredients, and terrific results--my kind of cookbook. I'm looking forward to trying many more.

I pre-ordered this several months ago and it arrived just in time for a school fundraising bake sale, so I set to it. What a wonderful book. I made the Snickers Brownies (these almost didn't make it to the bake sale--incredible), Mint Julep Brownies, Madeleines, and Ultimate Raspberry Cheesecake Bars. Perfect results, instant sell-outs. I am going to make the Mint Julep brownies again next week for the derby!

I got this book from the library and knew I had to own it. The information given before the recipes even start is reason enough to check out this book. I thought it was clear and concise for someone who is new to baking. Being a seasoned baker who is now baking for the grandchildren, I was amazed at all the different things I could do with a box of brownie mix. I usually make my brownies from scratch, but for some reason I cannot resist stocking up on brownie mix when there's a BOGO at my local grocery. Now I have something to do with the extra mixes I've accumulated. The Chocolate Raisin Pecan Bars are going to be created this weekend, and I've already made the Candy Bar Bars, which the kids loved. I recommend this book highly. I know it will be my 'go to' cookbook when I need a special dessert in a hurry1
