Expert Tips

  • Betty Crocker™ Supreme original brownie mix comes with a chocolate syrup pouch that is added to the brownie batter before baking. Additional chocolate syrup is then stirred in with the small brownie pieces to make an extra-gooey chocolaty filling.
  • Short on time? Brownies can be baked the day before and stored tightly covered with foil until you are ready to complete the recipe.
