  • How can I improve a box of brownies?
    I have a last minute meeting at church, and I want to bring some brownies. I don't have everything I need to make homemade ones, so how can I "jazz up" a box of brownie mix?

    Thanks!

    Mix up brownies as directed. In separate bowl, combine 1/2 c. sugar, one 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened, and one egg. Mix well and add to brownie mix. Swirl cream cheese mixture into brownie mix for marbled brownies. Enjoy!

    To be really decadent, you can frost the brownies with chocolate frosting after they cool!

    Turtle Brownies, pour half of the mix in a 9x13 baking pan then microwave some Marzetti Carmel apple dip (about 1½ cups) and pour over the batter, sprinkle some nuts over this and top with the rest of the brownie batter. Bake like you would for brownies. You might want to ice them also. These are sooo good.

    MILKY WAY BROWNIES:

    Serves: 12-15
    Source: Lisa
    Effort: easy
    Comments: These are some of the best brownies I have ever eaten. They are so very easy to make also. Only problem is staying out of them.

    INGREDIENTS:
    1 pkg. German Chocolate Cake Mix
    3/4 c. melted margarine
    2/3 c. Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
    1 bag (13 oz.) Milk Way Miniatures, chopped

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    Mix cake mix, margarine and Eagle brand milk together. In 9x13 pan spread 1/2 mixture. I sprayed the pan with non-stick cooking spray.
    Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven.
    Sprinkle chopped Milky Ways over top of mix. Take remaining mix and drop randomly over milky Ways.
    You do not need to smooth it out.
    Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
    This is the recipe from Candykisses and it rocks.

    Peppermint patty brownies -- just make according to the box directions. Spread half the batter in the prepared pan, layer out York Mini Peppermint Patties on top, and then carefully add the rest of the batter. Bake as usual. When you cut, there's a little bit of a peppermint patty in each piece :)

    My secret ingredients is "Toasted Coconut" . . . it adds a gourmet touch to brownies. I sometimes frost them with chocolate frosting too and sprinkle a little toasted coconut on top.

    I found a brand of brownie mix that tastes so similar to my homemade brownies that I use them all the time. And it is so economical too.

    WAs soon as you take the brownies out of the over spread a can of chocolate frosting on top. It will melt into the brownies as well as glazing the top. They will be very rich and fudgy.

    Was thinking the same as DillyDo.
    Or you could spread a raspberry filling and swirl throughout the dough before baking.
