I admit it, I was thrilled to receive a box of Betty Crocker Mississippi Mud Supreme Bars in to try because it came with a pan. Yes, I’m a pan addict.  I figure making a box of brownies is a small price to pay for one.  I fully intended not to eat any of the brownies because the ingredients are not organic and the list is mostly of ingredients I have no idea what they are or if they’re good for me.  Also, as a vegetarian, I don’t eat marshmallows.  Marshmallows have gelatin in them and if you don’t know how gelatin is made, let me just tell you it’s the reason I became a vegetarian years ago.

Anyway, I prepared the brownies (with half of the butter noted in both the crust and brownie) and they were super simple. Nothing more than a fork, spoon, bowls, and measuring spoons were needed to prepare them.  First melt the butter and mix it with the super-dark crumb mix. Flatten the crust into the bottom of the ungreased pan.  Mix the brownie mix and spoon it over the crust and then top it with the 1/4 cup of crumbs you saved from the crust.  Then bake.  That’s it!  I did find them to be kind of, ugly.  So I sprinkled vanilla dusting powder on them.  Just a little something to lighten them up.

Betty Crocker Mississippi Mud Brownie Mix ReviewNow, I had to taste it because I couldn’t tell you how horrible they were if I didn’t….just a tiny crumb. Mmmmm…ok, a little more.  Check the box….it doesn’t SAY gelatin….hoping the “natural flavor” isn’t gelatin….wipes away guilt and eats a 1″x1″ square.  Yes.  They’re good.  Nutritious?  Nope.  Organic?  Nope.  Made from real ingredients?  Nope  But for an occasional treat that requires no work whatsoever, they’re delicious.
