Nick Mann tests out these simple recipes for their fellow impatient bakers

Ghirardelli Box Brownie Mix

What you will need:

  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg. 

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Prepare baking pan by lightly greasing or spraying with non-stick cookies spray. Place water, oil, and egg in a medium bowl and stir until fully mixed. Add brownie mix and stir until well blended. Spread in prepared pan. Bake as directed below. Cool completely in the pan before cutting.

8/10 stars from me. They were amazing but very hard to perfect.

Pillsbury Premade Cookie Dough

Spread the cookies on a nonstick sheet. Put them in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Follow any other instructions on the packaging.

8/10 stars from me. These cookies are very good but after a day they can get stale. They are also very easy to burn.


Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

Grab a package of chocolate chip cookies. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.

Then put it on a baking sheet and set it in the oven to bake for the appropriate amount of time. These are what my cookies looked like.

Although they don’t look very good my family loved them. These are excellent for those who would like more of a baking experience but don’t exactly want to start from scratch. 10/10 stars from me.
