These brownies are nutritious and just crammed with delectable treats! They
prove my point, that too much of a good thing can be just wonderful!

6 tablespoons Bisquick Reduced Fat Baking Mix

I have JoAnna's Rocky Road Bars in the oven .I copy/pasted the recipe
from the eGroups board and I'm pretty sure the recipe has an error.It
calls for 1 cup of water in the brownie base{crust} but i'm wondering
if it should only be 1/2 cup or less.The batter is thinner than a
cream soup.I'll add the recipe in with this message and hope someone
can help me.I needed this for a dinner party dessert!!Feel free to
email me.thanks a lot!!

Carol, I have the cookbook that this recipe is from, and according to
the book (Cooking Healthy...Kids, p.262) the amount of water, 1 cup,
is correct. hope this helps, and hope your bars turned out great.
Haven't tried this one, let us know how they are!

From: Carol   
Wellllllllll, the baking time took about 20 minutes as the batter is
quite runny.Once done I added on the nuts, chocolate chips and
marshmallows & did it in the oven for 5 mins.They seem to be fine but
I cut them while still warm.I think it would be better to chill first
and then cut.Also, next time I will add a we bit of salt.But they are
tasty and I will make them again!!

From: Jen  
I think 1/2 cup of water would be more than sufficient for this
recipe. Must be a misprint.

From: Carol 
I kind of wondered about using only the 1/2 cup.The 'cake'{using 1
cup} turned out okay but doesn't have the 'brownie texture'.Thanks
for the tip!!
