I love the idea of monthly subscription services – especially the baking kits. I was subscribed to them for a while but they quickly got expensive. At $20 a month, there was no way I could continue on for just one pan of brownies or 8 cake pops.
Not too long ago I saw my favorite subscription box come out with a similar idea to these popsicle brownies. I was now on a mission. I wanted to see if I could replicate them but for less.
I headed to Food Lion to get everything I needed to create the popsicle brownies. First stop was the baking isle. Since I hoard sprinkles and chocolate, the only thing I had to pick up from this section was Nestle Toll House Baking Mix. Much to my surprise, they were on sale *score!* I was so excited that I almost forgot to get the wooden sticks!
So far my total cost is under $3 – The Nestle Toll House Baking Mix was on sale for $2.59 + I got $.75 back using Ibotta and the wooden sticks were $1 (such a far cry from the $20 that the subscription box cost!).
Nestle Toll House Baking Mixes include 3 recipe ideas on the back of each box – but that’s not all. If you head to verybestbaking.com, you will find tons of other ideas to make with the mix! After the popsicle brownies, I’m planning on making the Butterfinger Cookie Brittle. With Nestle Toll House, you can create and customize your favorite sweet treats with one versatile mix!
Nestle Toll House Baking Mixes – perfect for making popsicle brownies!
You see that bag of semi-sweet morsels? I didn’t buy those separately, they came in the Nestle Toll House Baking Mix! I measured out the oil and a few tablespoons of water then grabbed an egg out of the fridge. It seriously doesn’t get any easier than this.
To make the brownies easier to remove from the pan, I lined it with some parchment paper (which is one of my favorite kitchen hacks ever). You don’t even need to grease it. Just pour in the batter and bake!
Once the brownies come out of the oven, let them cool completely then pop them into the fridge to firm up. This will make cutting them soooo much easier. You don’t have to do this step but it will help you to get crisp, clean lines. Those two extra pieces on the end are yours to enjoy for all your “hard” work (but hide in the closet where no one can see you so you don’t have to share).
I melted some Nestle Toll House Premier White Chocolate Morsels to give a dipped look to the popsicle brownies. Spoon this over and let it set up a bit before adding the sprinkles so that they don’t sink in.
Once the chocolate has firmed up, you can stack them in a plastic container with a lid. I’d recommend using something solid in color that way no one can see what you have inside. I’ve found this is the best way to keep goodies on hand for more than a day. Otherwise, they will quickly disappear!
