Brownies from a boxed mix are great in a pinch, but brownies made from scratch are even better, and making them is a fun activity for the whole family. These fudgy brownies are full of chocolate and cinnamon flavor with a hint of coffee and marbled cream cheese. This easy-to-follow recipe will take you from dessert zero to brownie hero in no time, and you just might use it to become the queen of the next PTA bake sale fundraiser.

SoftScrape™ 6 Speed Hand Mixer from @Hamiltonbeach

 

 

We love using the SoftScrape™ 6 Speed Hand Mixer with Case to make these marbled brownies. The special SoftScrape™ blades are designed to minimize the need to manually scrape the bowl with a spatula as you mix.



Carrot Cake from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

Carrot cake is simply delectable, and since it’s made with two cups of shredded carrots, it’s healthy, right? We can’t be the only ones who try to rationalize our second piece that way. The crushed pineapple adds an extra layer of sweetness and a soft texture to the crunch of the pecans. The tartness of the cream cheese frosting brings it all together, making one sweet, crunchy, moist delicious cake.
