If there is one thing a family with little boyz has lots of this time of year, it is ballgames!  Little league games abound, and add to that our local minor league team and our annual family night out at the ball park and we have a heck of a lot of baseball going on.

Those trip to games have added a taste for the ball park to our boyz palette, and I was looking on how to create that at home.  I headed to Price Chopper and picked up a lot of our ball park favorites for a meal and dessert at home.  #PriceChopperBBQ is a great place to head for all of your bbq and home grilling needs!

You can’t beat Hillshire-Ball Park, Park’s Finest Hotdogs for a flavorful dog that you can grill right up!  There is nothing better than a great hotdog grilled, right?  We picked up the Signature Seasoned for this #CollectiveBias shop.

But for dessert I wanted to get all of those infamous ballgame tastes into one satisfying dessert.  That’s how I came up with the Take Me Out To The Ballgame Brownies!  While walking the aisles of my Price Chopper I added versions of all of the things I love at the game into my cart.

I picked up the Betty Crocker Supreme Brownie Mix with Hershey fudge included.  I actually picked up two boxes, since I was planning a big 13 x 9 pan size.  Then I added a bag of pretzels, candied popcorn (this one was caramel) and peanuts.

I loved the variety of items Price Chopper had and that the shelves were well stocked, especially during these busy summer months.  I also love that I had great coupons to save on my grilling needs!  Plus using my AdvantEdge card made it easy to save.

I headed home and started my brownies.  These were super simple to make, but I want to share with you some of the secrets of my baking success.  First and foremost, for a great brownie that you take a big bite out of you need to get it out of the pan.  When it says to grease the pan, when baking I either grease the pan and then lightly flour it or use a baking spray with flour in it.  It works!

Then, to get a nice smooth batter with my mix, I use a large metal whisk.  These eliminates and chunks in my batter!  I love the Betty Crocker Supreme Brownie Mix even had instructions for doubling the mix on the back, which is what I did.

I put my brownies in the oven, and then set a timer for half of the suggested time.  For my size pan that was just over 20 minutes.

While they were baking, I took out my add in ingredients.  I put a cup of popcorn and peanuts into a baggie and then crushed them with a rolling pin.  Then repeated.  Using the same process I did that with the pretzels.  Overall I used 2 cups of each item.

When the 20 minutes were up, I took the pan out of the oven and added the toppings, lightly pressing them into the top of them.  Then I put them back in the oven for the remainder of the time.

After they came out, I drizzled them with Hershey’s fudge I had on hand.  Looks awesome, doesn’t it?

This taste of the ballgame really hit it out of the park for me!  Especially after the Hillshire-Ball Park, Park’s Finest Hotdogs.
