Using A Brownie Mix: Mini Brownie Treats & Brownie Crackles

These are two favorite & very special treats made using a brownie mix. Great for class parties at school or church or a quick snack at home.  Use a favorite candy kiss...or 'hug' to top the mini brownies.

Both of these recipes are kid-friendly too!
