Firefighter-Approved brownies

My husband asked Leila and I to visit him at the station, and requested some brownies. Then he informed me that I should make them "really good" since they get so many baked goods, anything that's not above average doesn't get eaten. The nerve. Well, Leila and I experimented and here's what we came up with:


Firefighter-Approved Brownies (aka Peanut Butter Cup Brownies)


Ingredients:
*1 box Ghiradelli brownie mix
*1 egg
*1/3 cup water
*1/3 cup vegetable oil
*6 chopped Reeces Peanut Butter Cups
*1/2 cup melted peanut butter


Mix all ingredients together, and bake in a 8x8 (or 9x9) metal pan for 40 minutes on 325
degrees.


They turned out yummy. Really yummy. Leila and I were at the station for just about an hour and by the time we left there was less than half a tray left. Try them out next time you need something quick and easy. Yum, yum!

If they are Firefighter Approved I bet they are Police Officer Approved as well. I will be making them for work. I am a 911/Police/Fire/EMS dispatcher so I will be making these for the PD and the FD. Gotta keep'em happy. Anything with chocolate and peanut butter will not be around long!

Also, you rock for your amazing giveaway at Joy's Hope! I have Big Puffy heart love for your Faith necklace!

How adorable!!! I love brownies and those sound over the top yummy. Love your shop! "I love you to the moon and back" is my FAVORITE!!! Too sweet.

Shelly Primm said...

I found your blog from Joy's Hope! Love your work. My favorite is "my daddy could save your daddy" with the fire hydrant. My father was an engineer with the Charlotte Fire Department for 30 years. I learned early on that the firemen are the first to arrive to each scene and that every time we hear the sirens to say a prayer! In fact, my girls (6 & 4) will shout out a prayer when they hear the sirens. xoxo, Shelly

Gail :) said...

Wow does that bring back memories!!! My Grandpa was a firefighter and my step dad was a firefighter. We spent many a nights having dinner at the station. So much fun and great memories. My step dad retired before my daughter was a year old so sadly no more climbing on the the trucks and riding in the parades for us. Thanks for making those memories fresh again :) (my husband is in the police academy now, but somehow I doubt we can hang out at the station with the officers ;) LOL )

Carrie said...
