My Funny Valentine’s Day Story (and Recipe!)

I have a friend, who will remain unnamed, who nearly ended a budding romance on Valentine’s Day. Early in her courtship, not far past the honey moon period, she received a can of Pringles from the love of her life. Despite this faux pas, the couple has been together – happily – for more than thirty years now.

Pringles are delicious, but might I recommend a more romantic alternative?

Pringles Brownies

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1-6.41 ounce can of Original PRINGLES, regular or reduced fat
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
  • Powdered sugar for dusting  (optional)



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Line 13×9-inch baking pan with foil, and spray foil with cooking spray.
  3. In a glass bowl, microwave chocolate and butter on high for 2 minutes.  Stir until chocolate melts.
  4. In a stainless steel bowl, mix sugar, eggs, and vanilla until well mixed.
  5. 5. Pour in butter chocolate mixture and mix well.
  6. Empty PRINGLES and flour into a food processor, and puree until very fine.
  7. Empty flour mixture into chocolate mixture and mix well; add nuts to distribute.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes, and cool.

Disclosure: No compensation was received for this post; I just thought that making brownies with Pringles might be a fun thing to do with kids. Thanks to Pringles for sharing the recipe!
