Spruced up brownie mix brownies

Nothing wrong with using a good old brownie mix!

I got a late request for brownies with chocolate chips from my president taste tester, Rob. So I grabbed a brownie mix and was looking to spruce it up. I know you can make various substitutions (melted butter for oil; cold coffee, milk or heavy cream for water), so I did that here. I also added some baking cocoa and chocolate extract.

Thursday night treats!

Remember to preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Also, line your pan with tin foil and spray it with baking spray. I like to do this with brownies and bar cookies because it keeps the edges softer.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 brownie mix
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream or milk
  • 1/2 cup oil or melted butter
  • 1 tsp chocolate or vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a 9×13 pan with tin foil and spray with baking spray. Set aside. In a bowl, combine brownie mix, baking cocoa, eggs, cream, oil and extract. Blend in chocolate chips. Evenly spread into lined pan. Bake 13 to 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Sprinkle hot brownies with powdered sugar. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Thanks so much for stopping by. If you try these, let me know how they turn out. Also remember to be kind. We are all battling something. And some days, the burden people carry can be great. Wishing you peace, joy and love.
