I, like most of you, I presume, love sweets. Brownies are one of my favorite desserts, and one time while I was watching Food Network, Down Home with the Neelys actually, they made some Mississippi Mud Bars and I knew I had to make some or try some!
What was funny was, about two weeks later, I received an email from MyBlogSpark to try out some NEW Mississippi Mud Bars by Betty Crocker. You can bet that I jumped on that Spark!
I've been cooking alot more since I'm out of work. Not that I didn't cook before, but the meals I cook now are always three course meals and at least once a week I make a dessert to go with dinner. We love to eat here and one thing I know is that my mother taught me well - she taught me how to cook nutritional, tasty meals for my children.
One day I made some London Broil (which I've been making ALOT of recently!) for dinner and I decided to make the Mississippi Mud Bars. I had to lick the spoon and the bowl before the kids came downstairs, that's how good they looked! Yes, they looked that good even before being baked!
One thing I can't explain is that I followed the directions to a T and the mud bars came out a little dry. Not sure why, but next time, I'm going to adjust the water and/or eggs to make them a little more moist.
All in all, these were very tasty. I loved them! The kids loved them too!
