I’ll admit I’m not the biggest fan of plain brownies, but what I appreciate about them is the versatility and the numerous ways I can twist them up to make something even more delicious.
Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and Alan loves brownies, I decided to twist up a box of brownie mix and make Vanilla Chip Brownies.
Alan and I don’t exchange gifts for Valentine’s Day, but I do try to make a dessert that I know he’ll love. Of course, that means that the guys he works with benefits as well since I send the leftover desserts with him to work the next day.
Needless to say the co-workers love that I make so many desserts for the blog.
I used a box of brownie mix because some days it just makes life a lot easier to use the mix and add a few extras to whip up a batch of tasty vanilla chip brownies.
Before I decided on making brownies for Valentine’s Day I checked out the Kraft Recipes site and browsed for inspiration.

I twisted up my box of brownie mix by adding some vanilla pudding, white chocolate chips and a bit of PHILADELPHIA cream cheese.
