Pot Brownies in Pictures: A Step-By-What Were We Just Talking About?
There are hundreds of recipes on the Internet and in cook books at your neighborhood head shop. It could be a lot to take in, considering the audience, so we put together for readers the simplest way to make the best brownies. This isn't made from scratch, it is not "organic" and it won't really impress your guests - but it works. Depending on your preference, we offer a variation of side-steps from the bare essentials.
1. Gather the necessary equipment.
No matter what your preference, you are going to need the same basic ingredients.
- 1 package of brownie mix
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil OR half stick of butter (1/2 cup)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 8" x 8" baking pan
- Between 1/16-1/8 ounce of pot
- Vanilla frosting (optional)
- Peanut butter (optional)
Grind down the pot into a fine collection of grains. Here is where you can switch it up. If you prefer oil, mix the egg, water and oil first, then add the grinded-down pot (pictured). If you prefer butter, use a skillet and melt it before adding the fine grains. Add that butter pot into the egg and water, then add the brownie mix. It may seem like too little liquid at first, but not after you beat the mixture with a wooden spoon or a large fork. You can also add a 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the mixture.
Pour the resulting mixture into an 8" x 8" baking pan and place into oven for about 35 minutes. A glass baking pan requires about 7-8 minutes more and a 9" x 9" pan would take about 4-5 minutes less.
