If you're baking with kids...

Those little ones of yours can do just about anything in this recipe. You can even let them use the mixer, but there's no guarantee that your counters or table will stay clean! Be ready to be covered in flour and cocoa powder! When you're baking or cooking with kids and isn't messy or all over the place, then it's no fun!

      In the directi8ns it says to add the vanilla, but the vanilla is not listed in the ingredients. What is the amount of vanilla used?

      This recipe for brownies looks good and tasty and seems to be pretty easy to make and doesn't take that much time at all. The image of the brownies really make it look delicious.
