Toffee Brownies {4-Ingredients}

Have you ever had a brownie craving, but missing ingredients to make them and only cake mix on hand instead of brownie mix?  I think you’re going to love this recipe from Kim.  She uses a cake mix to make some deeply chocolate brownies that are studded with Heath toffee bits!

I love Heath candy bars and I love brownies, so it was only natural that I put the two together! Since I also adore quick and easy recipes, this dessert only requires 4 ingredients.

Toffee Brownie Ingredients EAH

If you are not a fan of toffee, you can easily substitute your favorite candy or chocolate chips. I’ve made these with mini peanut butter cups, Rolo candies, chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips! What can I say, they are so easy to whip up, and there are so many possibilities!

Also, this recipe contains no eggs, so it’s great for anyone with an egg allergy or who doesn’t eat eggs, and with so few ingredients it’s a great “first” recipe for kids. My children enjoy getting in the kitchen and baking up goodies, and this is the perfect rainy day activity (with the added bonus of getting my chocolate fix!)

*Note: I have vanilla pudding pictured with the ingredients, and chocolate pudding listed in the recipe. I usually use chocolate pudding, but you can substitute different flavors.

Cherry Limeade Cake

Cherry Limeade Cake


This cake.  Oh my word!

This cake is beyond fantastic.  You are going to want to make this cake!

Not only is this possibly the prettiest cake I’ve ever made (I’m not known for making pretty food), but it’s also one of the best tasting.  Maybe the very best.

I was inspired to create the recipe because of one of the donuts we served at Meredith’s wedding.  The Cherry Limeade donuts were my favorite of all of them.  They were cherry cake donuts with a limeade frosting that had the perfect amount of tang and sweet.

I knew I would use the Maraschino Cherry Cake recipe I made a few years ago.  It’s got such a pretty color and definite cherry flavor that isn’t overwhelming.

But I was a little stumped as to the frosting.  My first thought was to buy limeade mix.  You know, like lemonade mix only limeade flavor.  I was thinking of doing something like I did with the Strawberry Lemonade Cookies.  The problem was, they don’t sell limeade dry mix.

Thankfully, I talked to my mom before I started the frosting and she reminded me that there’s a frozen limeade concentrate.  She suggested using that.  I probably could have used straight up lime juice instead, but I was stuck on the idea of limeade.  And the frozen concentrate gave me exactly what I wanted – a sweet, tart, definite lime flavor that complemented the cherry cake perfectly.

Grab your grocery list, because you’re going to want to add these ingredients to it!  Here’s what you’ll need:   [Read more…]
