Warm Delights

By Cassandra D

Coming so close on the heels of the return of Sex Tape Derby, you may think I am writing about delights of a carnal nature. But no, I'm talking chocolate. Specifically, the new Warm Delights from Betty Crocker. Has anyone else tried these little sinful snacks? Just add water and in less than 2 microwave minutes, a hot gooey brownie or hot chocolate cake is there to provide all the comfort your weak-willed self requires.

I remember reading somewhere that cake mix makers had the technology to bring us "just add water" mixes. None of that adding oil or eggs business. That would be just fine with me. As with the Warm Delights, you could lick the batter all you want with no fear of Salmonella. But no, apparently consumers felt too guilty, that it just wasn't really baking something if all they had to do was add water. So here we have been, stuck with inedible cake and brownie batter. Until now. (insert maniacal laugh here)

So Betty, I salute you!
