It was brownine mix that came with a microwaveable plastic pan. You would make the brownies as usual by adding water and oil to the dry mix but the brownie batter would be poured in the pan and placed in the microwave to cook. The brownies would then cook in the microwave. I think that Pillsbury and Duncan Himes both had them out. I remember them in like 87-88.

Lucky Charms had a mini version of this as the prize for a while a long time ago. You were supposed to decorate it with the marshmallows. It was so good!

I remember first seeing the Pillsbury ones in 1987. My best friend was staying over that summer and we were both 9 at the time. We decided to make them and I put it on for the time it suggested on the box. My friend kept saying "Oh it's not done yet, let's put it on for another few minutes." I don't remember how long we had them on for, but it was definitely too long and when we took them out, they were as hard as a rock. Then there was fine printing on the box that said not to cook them for longer than 6 minutes. Oops. The thing was my friend's family didn't have a microwave oven back then, so she was used to everything taking a long time to cook.
