Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix
August 24, 2017 12:17pm CST
# 82 That’s where these brownies came from. I baked them but I have to give all the credits to Ghirardelli Chocolate for some fantastic brownie treats. The package came with chocolate chips included in the mix. All I needed to add were 1/3 cup of water, 1/3 cup of vegetable oil, and 1 egg. It’s super easy to make too. I didn’t even need to use an electrical mixer. First, I just blended the water, oil, and egg in a mixing bowl. Then I added the brownie mix and stirred until moistened. Finally, I poured the batter into lightly greased baking pan, put the pan inside a preheated oven, and baked it for 45-50 minutes. When it’s done, we could smell the beautiful aroma of freshly baked brownies. I waited until it was thoroughly cooled before cutting. The only thing was, I used a round cake pan instead of a square pan, that’s why the pieces were cut like cake pieces. These brownies didn’t last too long once they were done. But, I didn’t mind either as I decided spontaneously to make it to celebrate some happy news. You see, my son had a Practical Driving Assessment scheduled on that day. He had been practicing and preparing for it intensively for about a month before the test. And he brought the happy news that he passed the test – on his first try too! This kid also passed the theory test with 100% score on his first try when he got his Learner’s Permit. I hope he continues to be a good and responsible driver throughout his probationary period and eventually as a holder of full driver’s license.

No matter what the shape, that brownie is going to come out awesome ! Well - glad your son passed with fly colors! Another mom and I were talking about our little sons driving someday . . . oh - we couldn't even imagine it .

@Gillygirl He needs to gain some experience including 5 hours of night time driving before taking a computerized Hazard Perception Test. That will be the last test then he just needs to complete his probationary period before he can gain his full license.

@sishy7 You are definitely making this a challenge, to fly right or suffer the consequences. My cousins boy Jeff wasn't given these rules, when he first got his drivers license. One day after school, he was showing off for his friend, while driving and ended up getting killed:(

Congrats to your son on getting great scores on both tests. I remember going for my driving test and how worried I was. It's such a great feeling when you pass and realize it wasn't so hard after all. Now your son will have a little independence driving himself about. And Ghirardelli chocolate brownies for a celebration. What a great day!!!

thank you! yes, he's been waiting to pass this test although the rules are a bit weird down here. he still has to gain more experience including 5 hours of night driving before taking one more test, a computerized Hazard Perception Test. until then he still drives with a Learner's Permit requiring a qualified full licensed person next to him. but it shouldn't be too long now before he'll be able to drive on his own - he has passed the hardest test, the practical test, that usually take first time takers several tries to pass.

yes, he took the theory test and passed it 100% on his first try. then this time he took the practical test and passed it on his first try. there were a few mistakes on the practical test, but his score was still above the minimum required.

@averygirl72 He took the test very seriously. He had been intensively practicing specifically in the few weeks leading up to the test. All his efforts and concentrations paid off when he passed the test. He was very focused when he took the test. But he also remembered to relax and not stressing out too much - obviously the assessor could see all that and at the end of the assessment he told my son: "Your driving is fine, it's a pass!"
