Tips:

COOKING KNOW-HOW
Brownies can also be baked in a 13x9-inch baking dish. Just reduce the oven temperature by 25°F.

HOW TO STORE
Store cut brownies in tightly covered container at room temperature.

SPECIAL EXTRA
Toasting nuts gives them more flavour. To toast nuts, spread them in single layer on baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 min. or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally. Cool completely before using.
