This is a recipe handed down from mother, who would make it for every holiday dinner, and it was always a favorite. Therefore, we asked her for it several years ago, she recited it to the dear wife; and then she detailed it onto a note card, and now makes it often in our home.
What makes this a quick to fix dessert is the use of a typical box of brownie mix, one that will yield a batch in a 9×9 or 8×8 pan. Of course, a from scratch brownie recipe would do just as well, so please feel free to use your own if you so desire.
Please note that this recipe and the name has nothing to do with illicit drugs, or anything with cooking with drugs. The name is derived from the Elmer’s Candy Company famous Easter candy aptly named Heavenly Hash Egg, please refer to this nice review of the famous Easter candy egg. It is one of our favorites, however, typically only sold in the New Orleans area.
