I guess that you’ve probably caught on to the fact that I like to bake. When I have the time, I’m choosing to bake instead of buy things. I’ve been making more goodies for gatherings. One such opportunity happens every week on Wednesday nights. I love making a treat for my class of 5th/6th girls. I’ve been trying to make more things for scratch. I’m also trying to do very seasonal baking. 

This week I decided to make brownies… from a mix… but I couldn’t just leave it the way it was! I decided to put a twist on this brownie mix that I make quite often. I’ve never made peanut-butter brownies, so I thought this would be a great time to try to add another layer to something I’m very familiar with. I hopped online and consulted good ol’ Betty to help me with peanut-butter element.  To jazz things up and give the brownies some fall color, I added Mini Reeces Pieces to the mix and sprinkled them on top. The colors are just right to make it feel like an autumn goody.

These brownies turned out fun and festive! Not too mention tasty! It was very rewarding to add another element to a classic! I’m learning that baking is a way I can bless others and share something that brings me joy. I didn’t intend for this blog to become a location for me to showcase food, but I’m finding it brings me great happiness and I’m enjoying the challenge of trying new things.
