Aimee sent in a submission of a project that fits this scenario. Behold: Inside Out S'Mores:
The Original Pin
Mmmm! So, what do you do when this is what your brain tells you to make, but you only have a cake mix (not a brownie mix), and graham cracker crumbs (rather than whole crackers)? You try it anyway. Obviously it will turn out different, but hopefully a Pin Spin will come out of this!
Doesn't look like the original...but let's dig in...
Aimee said, " I ended up pouring milk in it just to get it to be editable. And YES I ate a piece of it, lol! After all, I would have punched someone in the face for the piece of chocolate in their pocket."
So these substitutions didn't work. Gotta have the brownie mix and whole crackers it looks like. This is completely along the lines of something I'd end up making in an attempt to make a snack out of what I found in the cupboards. For St. Patti's day I wanted to make a green pie, but I didn't have time to run to the store before our friends came, so I had to wing it. I found a box of cheesecake pudding and a box of lime jello and graham cracker crumbs. So I made the crumb crust, and then mixed the two boxes of pudding/jello together with milk (the amount on the pudding box for making a pudding pie with two boxes of pudding) and let it set up. The consistency was a little weird, but it tasted kinda like key lime pie and it did the job of a dessert! Sometimes you just have to make do with what you have on hand!
So this was perfect for our Use It Up week, even though it wasn't technically a Use It Up submission!
Again, check back at noon for another Use It Up project post!
