I asked hubby to pick up a sweet, I said I would make for him. Then he picked up this brownies from hundreds of other sweet options. He said let's start from the easiest. He is right, it is easy.
He waited and waited, after two weeks there was still no where his brownies. Then one day finally the brownies were made. He was only allow to eat one piece, since the rest had to go into the box and the box had to go a house warming party.

It was all my hubby's brownies before I saw this box. It is perfect for the brownies. I purchased it from the dollar shop for $1.5, and spent another $1 for the half golden gift wrap paper to go with the box.
This is the final look. If you have party to go, or gathering to attend, this may not be a bad idea.
