Allow me to share with you an easy method to make box brownies better.


Units Scale


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degree F.
  2. Prepare 8×8 baking pan by lining with parchment paper.
  3. Combine all the wet ingredients together and mix well. This can be done on either a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or with a balloon whisk.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low until just combined.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips.
  6. Bake according to the box directions, or in my case an 8×8 metal pan bakes for 39-43 minutes. Brownies should be slightly underbaked.
  7. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then lift out by the over hang of paper to a plate or cutting board to finish cooling.


Fresh baked brownies will appear underbaked but cool to doneness.
