Made up Brownies

One day in Texas I wanted something triple chocolatey and gooey, so I made up these brownies. I've found since then that I need to add a little milk, and it varies, so just--whatever! If you add more milk (or buttermilk), it will be a little more cakey, but still moist and chewy. And, last of all, on a vanilla kind of day, you really have to try it with vanilla cake mix, vanilla chips and vanilla icing--quite yummy (call 'em Blondies!)

Made up brownies (Chocolate treat!)

1 Chocolate cake mix, dry (try triple chocolate fudge)
¼ cup butter or margarine (very soft or melted)
¼ cup evaporated milk (or buttermilk, or milk- a little less)
1 egg
½ -1 cup chocolate chips

Mix together (dough is stiff) and press into 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or a little longer, but don’t over bake…. Cool for 10 – 15 min., then glaze with chocolate glaze.

Glaze
¼ cup butter, melted
3 T. Evaporated milk
2 T. Cocoa
2 c. powdered sugar
½ tsp. vanilla

Stir together dry ingredients. Stir together liquid ingredients. Mix together well. Add extra liquid if needed to make pouring consistency. Pour on brownies in a criss cross pattern. (for vanilla flavor, leave out the cocoa and add a little more powdered sugar if needed) Microwave this for 20 seconds before pouring on if it starts to harden up.

Well, it's similar to the way you make the homemade oreos, and I just wanted to spend less time, but still have the chewy chocolate!
