  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • 1

    (18¼-ounce) dark chocolate cake mix

  • ½

    cup butter, room temperature

  • cup dark brown sugar (if you like a less sweeter taste use ¼ cup)

  • ¼

    cup water

  • 2

    large eggs

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • ¾

    cup walnuts, chopped or 3⁄4 cup chocolate chips

  • Frosting, of your choice


Set oven to 375°F (second-lowest rack). Grease an 11x7-inch or a 13x9-inch baking pan (the brownies baked in a 13x9 pan will not be as high). In a large bowl using an electric mixer beat all ingredients except walnuts or chocolate chips until smooth (the batter will be thick). Add in walnuts or chocolate chips, mix to combine. Spread into the prepared baking dish (the batter will be very thick so have patience!). Bake for about 25-30 minutes (do not over bake). Cool completely before frosting.
