Awhile back there was a big sale, for some unknown reason, at our local Sobeys grocery store. I was in the gluten free aisle on the hunt for one of my favourite gluten free cereals. I love love love Bakery on Main and all of their granola cereals are amazing. Honestly, it can be a bit of a carbohydrate nightmare for me because I just want to keep going back to eat more.
I digress...the point is that I was in the gluten free aisle and noticed that for whatever reason, my Sobeys location had a huge sale on Celimix brand gluten free mixes of all sorts. Believe it or not, I had never ever purchased a Celimix product. No real reason that I can think of, I've certainly seen them in various grocery stores. I just had never bought any I guess. Of course when you find a gluten free baking mix that is regularly $5.99 and it's on sale for $2.49....well, c'mon who's kidding who here...you have got to buy it and give it a try!
I of course went immediately for the Dutch Chocolate Supreme Brownie Mix, hello it's chocolate! They also had tea biscuits, cookies, pizza dough, chocolate & vanilla cake mixes but who could pass up something with the words chocolate and supreme.
They were beyond easy to make, did not require a bunch of odd ingredients or odd amounts of additional ingredients. Yes I have made a mix that required 1 egg and 2.5 egg whites. It's common, I know, but it sure is less convenient. If I'm making a mix, I'm looking for ease and simplicity but maybe it's just me. Anyway, the brownies were excellent and had a rich chocolatey flavour, which is a must for brownies. The addition of the peanut butter Chipits, certainly was just an added extra level of yum, but was totally not necessary. My only criticism would have to be that this package makes a cake-like brownie as opposed to a fudgey brownie and I prefer a fudgey brownie, but that's just a personal preference.
