If you’re looking for a fun kitchen activity with the kids that requires no extra ingredients, take Pillsbury brownie minis for a spin.
Sure it’s easy to make minis out of regular ol’ brownie mix, but these come with their own pan and require nothing more than adding water.
Buy a box (makes two dozen brownies) for about $2.50 at grocery stores nationwide.
