The recipe starts on page 7. The rest is a few more recipes for cookies but mostly typical government blah blah icon_lol.gif . Imagine what military and FBI papers look like if the brownies take up 26 pages! Get it right or the CIA will be at your doorstep! I thought this was a riot.

My favorite part is that they are "cocolate" covered.

Hahaha! I didn't catch that as my eyes were crossing after the first two pages.

I can believe the detailed directions, even the uniform catalogs are so detailed they even say you have to wear underwear!

geez no wonder taxes are so high, imagine the paper they must go through, not to mention paying someone to come up with all of that drivel.

Jeremy Whitsitt, speaking for the Department of Defense Combat Feeding Directorate, explained that these brownies are not intended for ordinary circumstances. They are, in fact, heading into war zones.

"One thing we like to say is, 'What would happen if you cooked a meal, stored it in a stifling hot warehouse, dropped it out of an airplane, dragged it through the mud, left it out with bugs and vermin, and ate it three years later?'"
Actually making the brownies/cookies is only one page. The rest of the "Recipe" covers specifications for ingredients and packaging materials, how to make the pouches and set up the boxes, what tests have to be ran to insure a 3 year shelf life, etc.

Quite frankly, I'm pleased to get these two recipes.
MRE brownies and oatmeal cookies are remembered nostalgically and the recipes hunted for by many military personnel.

7, the Slashood author didn't have good reviews for the brownies, I wonder if the bread flour has anything to do with that?

Bread flour might make them tougher, however brownies and cookies that are designed to last for 3 years most likely would not be as good as something intended to be eaten within 3 days.
