Glad I stumbled upon this page. I followed the advice briteyes79 read from CulinaryInstructor post, and my brownies turned out perfectly fine. (1/4 cup oil, 1/3 cup water, & 2 eggs per box of brownie mix) Everyone went back for seconds and loved it. They all thought I made it from scratch. =P gonna make changes to the other boxes I have so next batch turns out perfect, too.

Well after reading these reviews I won't be using a BC brownie mix! I was just headed to the store to buy a couple boxes to make for a party tonight but will be getting a different brand now!! Really to bad that you had to mess with what was a good thing. Hope Betty Crocker listens to these complaints and returns to what works!!!!

Hallelujah! After several boxes of lousy brownies over the past year or so, we had a great batch tonight! I have been wondering if the recipe changed, so I came to this website to see if I can learn any changes made in recent months only to see that others have had bad experiences lately, too. My family was experiencing two issues: 1) sometimes the brownies were an oily gooey mess, and 2) sometimes the brownies were cakey and sponge-like. We’ve been reluctant to buy more of this brand, but upon seeing a sale recently, my wife picked up several boxes (hard to pass up $0.88/box!) which may be due to the nearing “best by this date” in June 2015. It did seem like the batch was a little thinner than usual…but since I haven’t been randomly sampling our brownie batches for thickness measurements, maybe it’s just my perception. I will note that we followed the default recipe (2 eggs, 2/3 cup oil, ¼ cup water) as we have for years even though we’re considered “high” altitude (~4,700 ft). I hope whatever was off these past several months has been corrected (if not, it’s CAPA time!).

Well, I cut the brownies with a little more ease this morning, so most were salvageable. Refrigeration seemed to help, although they had ragged edges from last night. Next time, I will refrigerate before I even attempt to cut...and will try baking at a lower temperature...but for longer.

P.S.: The ingredients list for "Low-Fat Fudge" calls for 1/2 C. water, 1 T. vegetable oil, and 1 egg. In the instructions, #2 says to "...stir brownie mix, water, oil and eggs..." notice that egg is now plural.

My brownies have also turned out too gooey to even cut with a plastic knife...and after they've cooled for a few hours, to boot! I followed the instructions to a T, as well, on the Betty Crocker box, but ended up baking them about 6 minutes longer since the toothpicks seemed to indicate they weren't yet done after every additional 2-minute interval. I have a new stove which chicken, beef roast, and pizza have all seemed to turn out fine, but this baking experience made me wonder if the oven is not calibrated correctly. I baked in a 13" X 9" glass baking dish and waited until the toothpick finally came out "almost clean" just 2" from the edge. But, as someone else had stated, my edges were crusty and the rest gooey. This was part of 12 dozen finger morsels I'm to take to church in the a.m. Well, It looks like I'll be cutting up watermelon and bananas to replace these 18 brownies. Thank goodness I purchased other ready-made items and didn't make brownies the main event. The mix I used was "Low-Fat Fudge." It was my thought when I saw how the brownies turned out, that what was needed (as some suggested)--a lower temperature for a longer baking time. As a last resort, I've refrigerated the brownies, so I'll see if there's any difference in the morning when I'll try to cut them one more time; I'll give feedback on what happens.

These used to be the absolute BEST brownies ever...USED TO BE. You've changed them and it is NOT for the good. I would definitely go back to the previous recipe. I'm going to have to try some other brands now that you've changed :(

I need some serious help. For the last 6 months every time I have tried making brownies I would get some stringy plastic white pieces in my brownies. I have tried different brownie boxes different eggs and also taking out those nasty white stringy parts on a raw egg and still nothing has worked. I have made brownies for over 20 years and have never had this problem please tell me someone knows what I'm talking ,about and what to do to fix it?

Although it says "new look same great taste" on the box of Fudge Brownie Mix, the taste is far from being the same. I noticed it immediately, even before baking, when I licked the spoon. After baking, I took one bite and threw the whole pan away. The taste and texture were both awful. They have always been my favorite, but I'll be trying out different brands now. They certainly can't be any worse. :-(

I used the correction suggested by 'CulinaryInstructor' below (1/4 cup oil, 1/3 cup water, & 2 eggs per box of brownie mix), and I did not experience the oily mess that others have. The final product was more than adequate. Glad I stumbled across this site first; my recipe would have been ruined!
