Better Than Box Mix Brownies


Why make brownies from a box mix when you probably already have everything you need? These homemade brownies have incredible textures and flavors as boxed brownies, but without processed ingredients.

Everyone always prefers box-mix brownies when I ask about their favorite kind of dessert. When you’re in a hurry and craving something sweet, there’s no guilt in reaching for a box of brownie mix from the grocery store. And, to be honest, what is there not to love? The brownies are always gooey, chewy, and topped with that incredible thin crackly crust.

— But my “homemade” brownie recipe is quite simple, perhaps more delicious, and the best part is that you know exactly what’s in your brownie mix.

I have tried a lot of brownie recipes, and they all come out delicious, but this recipe is my favorite. These brownies have the most incredible texture and flavor! They have a wonderfully crisp exterior and an unbelievably chewy interior.

So, if you’re a die-hard boxed brownies fan, give this recipe a try. Own a Bake-Off! One person prepares the box mix version, and another prepares this homemade version. Although I’m sure it won’t take you long to find a willing participant, you’ll need an unbiased judge.

Why You’ll Love These Chocolate Brownies?

My homemade brownie recipe is similar to the grocery store box mix version. I’m sure this recipe will wow you if you are a fan of box-mix brownies.

This recipe is incredibly easy to follow and tastes fantastic. They’re rich and chocolaty, and I’m sure these will be even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Most of the ingredients are probably already available in your pantry. Additionally, this one-bowl recipe requires only a mixer and a spatula. So give this recipe a try. You’ll be glad you did it. That is all there is to it. What further reason do you require to bake these chocolate brownies?

  • Line a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, allowing the foil to extend past the sides of the dish. Spray it with nonstick spray and set it aside.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter over a low flame. Once totally melted, whisk in the sugar. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Avoid bringing it to a boil.
  • Pour the mixture into the mixing bowl. Combine cocoa powder and salt.
  • Mix the eggs, vanilla extract, and baking powder. Beat on high speed until completely integrated.
  • Slowly add the flour, mixing at low speed until thoroughly combined.
  • Stir well in chocolate chips to spread them evenly.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking pan—Bake for approximately 30 min at 350°F (preheated oven). When a toothpick poked into the center comes out clean, it’s ready.
  • Let it cool for 5 -10 minutes in the pan.
  • Once cool, use the foil overhang to pull the brownies from the pan. Cut into squares after peeling aside the foil.
  • Serve and enjoy!
