Cookies & Cream Cake Mix Brownies

By Bree Hester
Created January 10, 2017
Have you ever made brownies from cake mix? They’re so easy and so versatile. Imagine what combinations you can create with this idea!

Don’t you hate when you are sure that you have a box of brownie mix in the pantry only to find that you used the last box? I’ve done this on more than one occasion. If you happen to find a box of cake mix though, a pan of brownies is still in your future. Not only a pan of brownies, but a really rich and delicious pan of brownies. 

The thing I love about cake mix brownies is that you can make just about any combination you like. Simply switch out the flavor of cake mix and candy that you use and you have a new brownie every time. How great would lemon with white chocolate chips be? Or yellow cake mix with a chocolate nougat bar? Yum. Want to see how I did it? 

 Grab a box of cake mix, 2 eggs and 1/3 cup vegetable oil.


Add the ingredients to a large bowl.


Mix on low speed with an electric mixer. The batter will be very thick, more like a cookie dough than regular brownie batter.


Divide the mixture in half, and press it into a 9x9 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Add the candy pieces to the middle.


Top with remaining batter.


Press the batter over the top, covering all of the candy pieces.


Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely and cut into squares.
