Brownies ‘n Berries Dessert Pizza and Brownie Pops

Quick update first on my daughter.  She is still doing well but has to remain the hospital for a few more days of observation.  Working on my posts gives me a little out, but I don’t have everything here at the hospital so I’ll see what I can come up with.

This is my final post about Baking with Betty. I got to go to the brownie station last. I love brownies so it was a great place to end. Again, we were divided into two groups. One made the brownie pizza and one made brownie pops. I was in the brownie pop group. The brownies pops are a fun way to jazz up a normal brownie. Plus, I think anything placed on a stick is always fun and I am sure the kids will like it. This is also simple enough you can totally get the kids involved. This recipe basically gives you all the tips and tricks to making these a breeze.

I also got to sample the brownie pizza. I figured it would be a winner. I mean, really, how could you loose with the combination of brownies, cream cheese, and yummy fresh berries? Then to make it fun and beautiful by making it into a pizza. After that, we sampled the brownie goody bars and rocky road brownies. Rocky road brownies are another usual winner. I don’t think you can go wrong with those. The brownie goody bars were good, but really sweet. I think all the sweets I had at this point may have gotten to me though. I think we all were on a good sugar high at this point.

We also got a preview of some new yummy product that Betty will be rolling out soon.  There were samples of some of these too.
* Dessert Mix that you will be available at Sam’s and Costco
* Gluten Free Bisquick and dessert mixes including cake, brownies, and cookies!
* Specialty cookie mixes that will be available during the holidays! Look for pumpkin spice, snickerdoodle, and pumpkin spice.
* Decadent Supreme line including two cakes and a molten lava cake along with the Mississippi Mud Bars I have talked about before.

Before leaving to head home we managed to get a tour of the photo studio and prop room.  Both were amazing to see.  I only wish I had a prop room like theirs.  I was in heaven with all the dishes, linens, etc.  We all had a blast!  Thanks to Betty Crocker and General Mills for an awesome experience.
