I’m not saying that a box of plain brownie mix is an invitation to blah snacks. But if you could kick the treats up 4 notches to decadence once in a while, why not?
My Daughter and I are both chocoholics, my Wife isn’t, so we won’t need to share these with her.
I started with a box of Betty Crocker brownie mix, but any mix would do.
Oh, and enjoy!

About Geoff & Drew’s from their website:
Geoff & Drew’s was founded by Geoffrey Auslen and Andrew “Drew” Koven. And our best friends Carol Spickler and Hilary Meshken who brought tremendous talent, energy and balance to the team very early on. Armed with some amazing cookies, a passion for making people happy and a tremendous wealth of ideas and experience, we baked nearly 1000 cookies in the first day of business.
We launched on September 9th of 2001 as Late Night Cookies – a cookie and milk delivery service in Boston, Massachusetts. Our recipe for success was simple – to do the basics exceptionally well and the tough stuff too, never cut corners, love our business and LOVE OUR CUSTOMERS.
For the first two years we did not sleep much and learned. The greatest lesson I could share is not to confuse the hobby of baking and a passion for doing it with the business of baking and the committment required to be successful at the next level. This is where our diverse team was invaluable. Our vision for the future was forming as we experienced how customers were responding to our cookies and brownies, the packaging, presentation and a desire to have a relationship with our brand and us. As luck would have it, one satisfied customer in particular, Gourmet Magazine, wrote a wonderful article about the cookies and a star was born. We renamed the Company to Geoff & Drew’s in late 2003 and the rest as we say is baking history!
It’s April 1st, which means you can print out the new Nabisco Facebook coupon. These don’t stick around long, they only have 30,000 to give out. Click on the Cookies and Milk tab to get to the coupon. And this coupon is so nice, you can print it twice!
Oreo is a trademark for a popular sandwich cookie by the Nabisco Division of Kraft Foods. The current design consists of a sweet, white filling commonly referred to as ‘cream’ or ‘creme’, sandwiched between two circular chocolate or golden cookie pieces.
Over 491 billion Oreo cookies have been sold since they were first introduced, making them the best selling biscuit of the 20th century. Its most recent packaging slogan is “Milk’s Favorite Cookie”, which is a slight change from the original, “America’s Favorite Cookie” (though some packages in the U.S. still use the original slogan).
