My recipe for homemade Prozac...

...involves a box of Ghirardelli brownie mix and a recipe of homemade raspberry buttercream frosting (10 T softened unsalted butter, 1 1/4 C of confectioner's sugar, a pinch of table salt, one T of heavy cream and 3 T of Smuckers seedless raspberry jam). Bake the brownies as directed and cool completely before frosting. Sprinkle frosted brownies with mini chocolate chips (optional) and enjoy!

I've always wanted to try making frosted brownies, and I figured it'd be worthwhile to experiment first with a box mix. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) the box mix brownies turned out so well I have no reason to try it with brownies from scratch! LOL XD If anyone ends up trying it, be sure to store the frosted brownies in the fridge.

I think that there are good box mix brownies out there, and you can make a decent banana cake involving yellow cake mix. However, I can't think of a single positive thing to say about canned frosting. Ugh! I remember that when those disgusting Dunkaroos came out in the nineties it was like every kid's dream come true. Canned frosting and cookies for a snack, woo hoo! I think that's when I realized that canned frosting was really awful.

I still wish I could have had an EZ Bake oven when I was a kid. Somehow being able to use a real oven doesn't have the same mystique...
