Brownies – One Box, Two Ways

  
I have such a sweet tooth, so baking is very enjoyable for me. It not only gives my family and I some sweet treats, but it also offers me the chance to be creative.

This idea popped into my head recently, while I was thinking of the next steps to take with the website. (Yes, new stuff is coming!)

It is easy, and delicious. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

You’ll need a mixer, a separate bowl, two spatulas, a soup ladle, and two 9″ baking pans that have been sprayed or coated, so the brownies don’t stick.

Ingredients:

1 Box Betty Crocker Brownie Mix (FAMILY size, this is important. You need the 13×9 pan box.)

1/2 Cup Hershey’s Syrup

10 Double Stuf Oreos, crumbled 

1/2 Brick Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened 

1/2 Cup Nestles Chocolate Chips

(Note: my ingredient list did not include those on the back of the box.)

Directions:

Mix brownies according to box, I did this in my Kitchen Aid stand mixer. Be sure to scrape the sides with a spatula, and mix thoroughly.

Once fully mixed, separate half of the batter into a separate bowl. Using the soup ladle made this easier.

In the mixer, add the 1/2 brick of cream cheese, and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. (I cut the cream cheese into squares to help it mix evenly.) Mix this thoroughly, and pour into one of the prepped 9″ baking pans. 

In the bowl, with the other part of the batter, add the 1/2 cup chocolate syrup, and the crumbled Oreos. Mix this well with your spatula, and pour into the other prepped 9″ baking pan.

Be sure to use one spatula for each to scrap the sides to get all the batter into the pans.

Bake both pans, at the same time, at 350 degrees, for 35 minutes. Check them at 25 minutes, as ovens do vary. You know they are done when you can poke them with a toothpick and it comes out clean.

Let sit for 5 minutes, and enjoy!

Recipe Doubling:

Have a big event? Buy two boxes of brownie mix and doubled the added ingredients. Use a 13×9 pan for both, and possibly bake one at a time.
