One of the best things about this recipe is the brownies get moister if you leave them in the refrigerator a day or two. The problem at our house is no one can leave them alone for that long!
My husband—the best auctioneer you've ever heard!—and I have two grown daughters and a son, 14.
Mary Fox from Forest City, Iowa dresses up a boxed mix to create these moist brownies with from-scratch taste. "This recipe is good, it has to be shared," she says. "It uses abut half of a can of prepared frosting. Save the rest, because you'll make them again."
My children and grandchildren are the light of my life. I always try to have homemade cookies or brownies on hand for them when they visit. This recipe is one of their favorites.

Hosting a Halloween party? Use a cookie cutter to easily cut these homemade chocolate brownies into pumpkin shapes, then give them personality with orange, black and green frosting. "Our grandchildren thought these were great!" writes Flo Burtnett from her home in Gage, Oklahoma.
"This is such a sophisticated dessert!," rhapsodizes Agnes Ward in Stratford, Ontario. "Each rich, fudge-like brownie is bursting with fresh, plump red raspberries and topped with a dreamy, bittersweet ganache. It’s true perfection for chocolate lovers of all ages!"
To tell the truth, I'm not a "chocoholic". I enjoy fruit desserts and custards more than anything. So my brownies have neither milk nor dark chocolate—but still satisfy every sweet tooth.
Though my husband and I live in a townhouse, I grow lots of vegetables...in containers on our back deck!
"If you like chocolate-covered strawberries, you'll love this sweet treat," says New Holland, Pennsylvania's Anna Lapp. "It's an ideal ending to summer meals," she adds. A fudgy brownie, whipped topping and fresh fruit make this a no-fuss feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.
I live on a farm with my husband, Danny, and our children, Jeffrey, Scott and Angie. Between farm chores, gardening and taking the kids to their many activities, I manage to keep quite busy. I do, however, like to cook and bake.
