"Having a brownie mix in your pantry is PERFECT. When you don't feel like making something from scratch - you can pull out your mix without using store mixes (which cost more). Great!"

"Do you get 24 brownies to a batch? I see it says yield is 108 or 12x9. That would mean using this in about 4 batches to yeild 96. I never cut but around 20 per batch to have large brownies for four people."
