Most of the baked goods I make are made from scratch, but I’ve never fully transitioned out of baking brownies from a mix. I find the from scratch recipes to be a little complicated and often the brownies don’t have that chewy texture that the box mix ones produce every time.

I came across a recipe that promised to be super easy, leaving no excuse to bake from a mix. It also promised me chewy and fudgy brownies. So of course I had to try it.

The recipe is pretty easy to follow. Not as easy as using the mix, but still fairly simple. And the results were just as promised. The brownies were both super super fudgy and still chewy, like box mix brownies! My one issue was that the outer crackly skin was so delicate that it pretty much crumbled upon touch and didn’t taste as good as the crackly skin on the box mix brownies.

This was still good enough to be a keeper recipe. I really love the fudgy interior, which is fudgier than the brownie mix ones. Yum. You can view the full recipe here.

    These look great!

    I also often opt for box mix brownies and just add a bunch of stuff to them, haha.

      I know, box mix ones are so easy and good. And you can change them up by adding Nutella, marshmallows, etc. But yeah, if you want a “from scratch” recipe, I was pretty happy with this one.
