  • 1 box of Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on the Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix package.
  2. Grease a 9×9-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper to easily remove the brownies.
  3. Combine the Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix, eggs, vegetable oil [1], and water in a mixing bowl. Stir the mixture until well combined, ensuring no dry pockets of the mix remain.
  4. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly with a spatula.
  5. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for the duration indicated on the package. Be sure to avoid overbaking the brownies to maintain their fudgy texture. Insert a toothpick into the center of the brownies; if it comes out with a few moist crumbs, they are done.
  6. Once baked, remove the pan from the oven and let the brownies cool in the pan for a while. This will allow them to set and develop their flavors.
  7. Once cooled, cut the brownies into desired-sized squares using a sharp knife.
  8. Serve the Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownies on a platter, savoring each rich and fudgy bite. They can be enjoyed as is or paired with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for extra indulgence.
  9. Store any leftover brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days if they last that long!

How Do I Achieve That Coveted Fudgy Texture?

To achieve that coveted fudgy texture in your brownies, my dear baker, remember two key elements: mixing and baking.

“I love chocolates. It could be something as simple as a chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream, or it could be macarons filled with chocolate.”

– Ranveer Singh, Indian Actor

Be gentle when mixing the batter, ensuring you combine the ingredients until they are incorporated. 

Overmixing can lead to a denser texture. As for baking, aim for a slightly undercooked center.

When a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs, it’s time to remove them from the oven. 

The residual heat will continue cooking them as they cool, resulting in that indulgent, melt-in-your-mouth fudgy goodness we crave.

Tips To Adding Personal Touch To The Brownie Mix

  1. Sea salt: Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt [2] on top of the brownie batter before baking to create a delightful sweet and salty contrast.
  2. Chopped nuts: Mix in a handful of chopped nuts, such as walnuts or pecans, to add a crunchy texture and nutty flavor to the brownies.
  3. Chocolate chips or chunks: Fold in some chocolate chips or chunks into the batter for pockets of melted chocolate throughout the brownies, intensifying the chocolate experience.
  4. Creamy peanut butter: Swirl a generous dollop of creamy peanut butter into the batter to infuse it with a luscious and nutty taste.
  5. Flavored extracts: Experiment with adding a splash of flavored extracts such as vanilla, almond, or mint to enhance the aroma and taste of the brownies.
  6. Fresh or dried fruits: Incorporate diced fresh fruits like raspberries or cherries or even dried fruits like cranberries or chopped dates for a burst of fruity goodness.
  7. Espresso or instant coffee: Dissolve a teaspoon of espresso powder or instant coffee in a small amount of hot water and add it to the batter to intensify the chocolate flavor.
  8. Spices: Sprinkle in a pinch of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or chili powder to add warmth and depth to the brownies.

How Do I Store Leftover Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownies?

  1. Allow the brownies to cool completely after baking. This helps them set and maintain their texture.
  2. Cut the brownies into individual servings or squares if you need to be portioned.
  3. Place the leftover brownies in an airtight container or wrap them tightly in plastic. Ensure they are fully sealed to prevent air exposure, which can lead to drying out.
  4. Store the brownies at room temperature in a cool, dry place. Avoid storing them in direct sunlight or near heat sources, as this can affect their texture and flavor.
  5. If you live in a particularly hot or humid climate or anticipate storing the brownies for an extended period, you can also store them in the refrigerator. The cooler temperature will help maintain their freshness.
  6. Enjoy the leftover brownies within 2 to 3 days for the best taste and texture. Beyond that timeframe, they may retain their optimal quality.
