Time Crunch Dessert

The week leading up to Christmas, I found myself totally strapped for was literally non-stop activity in our household.  My plan was to bake my Brownies From Scratch recipe but when I realized all of my butter was stored in the freezer, I quickly needed to come up with Plan B.

Duncan Hines to the rescue.

Fortunately I had this box of Duncan Hines Triple Chocolate Cake mix in my pantry that was given to me at a recent Foodbuzz event I certainly came in handy.

I followed the directions on the box for cupcakes with Paige's help and threw them in the oven to bake.  This mix has you mix up a seperate chocolate chip mix to dollop on top-center for an extra rich chocolatey taste.

These taste just as good as they look!

Baked OR just the batter.

Once they had cooled, a little frosting and crunched candy cane topping was all that was needed for a perfectly easy holiday dessert.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave a comment. I love to hear from you! Have a fantastic day!
