COMBINE cake mix and peanuts in large bowl. Stir in 2/3 cup evaporated milk and butter (batter will be thick). Spread half of batter into ungreased 13 x 9-inch baking pan (layer will be thin).

A Big Hit

I made these brownies for my family, and they were a huge hit. I left off the gummy sweet tarts. Very easy to mix up and bake.


Great Brownies

I made these because I wanted a sweet snack to bring to work and to send with my husband to his work....I must admit that I did leave off the gummy bugs. Otherwise, it was wonderful.
