After reading the ingredients, specifically the list of preservatives, in boxed mix brownies I’ve been on the search to find the perfect homemade recipe. It’s been hard because very few things compare to how good Betty Crocker’s box mix is… but this recipe does. I’ve tweaked it very slightly from Brooke’s Best Bombshell Brownies, a dynamite recipe I found on All Recipes.
1 cup oil
3 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 pan.
- Mix together oil, sugar and vanilla extract.
- Mix in the eggs.
- Add flour, cocoa and salt. Mix thoroughly.
- Use a spatula to mix in chocolate chips to the batter.
- Bake 35-40 minutes (unless you are making them in a glass pan which takes me about 55-60 minutes).
One of my little partners diligently helped me whip these up for a very happy two little boys and AJ. She was so into it and was so excited to help with every step… including sampling the chocolate chips.
I hope you enjoy these brownies as much as we do! We’re having friends over tonight to talk with them about selling their home and purchasing a new one (AJ and I are both real estate agents) so I’m serving these with some vanilla bean ice-cream… they’ve been a hit every other time!
