The Truth About Pillsbury’s Place & Bake Brownies

We all know and love those delightful Pillsbury sugar cookies with festive designs perfect for nearly any holiday. Did you know Pillsbury recently debuted the latest product in a long line of quick, easy desserts?

Introducing the new Pillsbury Place & Bake Brownies.

These new Place & Bake Brownies make baking even more simple and include 12 brownie pieces ready to pop right in the oven without any mess. The brownies come in a few varieties: Chocolate Fudge, Peanut Butter, and Marshmallow. While I wanted to try all of them, I had to settle for the Chocolate Fudge brownies because my local Target did not carry the others. Regardless, I bought the brownies and headed home eager to test them out.

This product is very similar to the other Pillsbury desserts in that they are ready to bake right out of the package. What I love most about Pillsbury is that even the most novice baker can make these desserts. Opening the package, it was interesting to see the brownie pucks all packed together. I resisted the urge to eat the brownie dough and moved on to breaking apart the brownie rounds and placing them in a muffin pan.

It does specify on the package that you should place the brownie rounds into baking cups, but of course I ran out, so half of the brownies had baking cups and the other half did not. In the end, this did not make a difference and I found the brownies easy to remove even without the baking cups. The package also says to bake the brownies at 350 degrees for 20 to 22 minutes; however, I let them bake a couple minutes longer because they were not completely done in the middle. I recommend baking the brownies for the initial 20 minutes and then adding time if necessary, as ovens may vary.

Whether you enjoy baking or not, the Pillsbury Place & Bake Brownies are perfect if you need a quick dessert. Forget all the preparation time and dirty dishes, the Pillsbury Place & Bake Brownies provide a delicious treat without all the hassle. There are so many ways to spruce these brownies up including adding marshmallows, cookie dough, and more. I placed Oreo cookies under half of the brownies, and it was amazing! Even though I could not try the other variations, I will be on the lookout to try them in the future. I highly recommend you give these brownies a try on your next grocery trip.
