I have raised the white flag and surrendered to the box mix. Typically I bake from scratch but I just can't find a good recipe and they end up going stale after a day. In my quest for great brownies I stumbled upon the best brownies ever, and the crazy part is they're from a box. Sure Ghirardelli costs a little more than Betty Crocker, but they're so worth it. Even my homemade brownies didn't taste this good.
