This recipe for Cake Mix Brownies is so simple, and makes the fudgiest, easiest brownies ever!
I feel like I’ve been holding out on you here. With these brownies, I mean. Everyone’s so worried about making the perfect “from scratch” brownie…
Fudgy vs cakey…
Dark vs Milk…
And I do have a few pretty stellar “scratch” brownies here on my site. My Kid’s Favorite Brownies are a lighter chocolate flavored brownie, and MY favorite Fudgy Brownie Recipe are richer brownie made with melted semi-sweet chocolate. Both are solid. But today we’re talking about an “in a pinch” option. Of course you can use a brownie mix. Duh.But these Cake Mix Brownies, are so super easy and seriously good.
I used a Dark Chocolate Cake Mix, but you can use whatever chocolate cake you like!
Also, you might notice the ginormous chunks of chocolate in the brownies. Well, yeah.
I decided to make the executive decision and throw in some Hershey’s Baking Melts. Good choice, all around.
The batter is super simple…
Just your cake mix, a little oil, an egg and some milk.
Then stir in your extra chocolate, if you’re going there.
You could totally stir in a few cups of chocolate chips if you can’t find the baking melts!
Then spread it in a greased 8×8 pan…
Bake them and let them cool completely before cutting into squares…Sigh.
Now you’ve got some eating to do!Print
