How to make brownies from cake mix
First, you’ll need a box of your favorite chocolate cake mix.
For this recipe, I used Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge, but any chocolate cake mix will work.
Add the cake mix, olive oil, eggs, vanilla extract, and chocolate chips to a large bowl.
Use a rubber spatula or spoon to mix until completely combined.
Spray an 8 X 8 baking dish with cooking spray, then add the batter in.
Smush it down into the edges, and flatten out any lumps. Bake at 350 degrees until done, around 20 – 25 minutes!
Allow to cool completely before cutting for easiest results.
If you’re like me, this is pretty much impossible!
I have been known to ruin batches of brownies because I just couldn’t wait to dig in and try one.
Share these at a party, with your friends and neighbors, or just make it for yourself when you deserve a treat.
