    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.

    The recipes listed in the directions are shown as "Related Recipes" next to the recipe. So that's how you can use them, I think...

    Could you provide directions on how to use the mix? This sounds like it would be convenient to keep on hand.
