These brownies are moist, gooey and chewy with the addition of a secret ingredient! There are two methods for this recipe… one uses a box mix as a starter (I like easy) and one is from scratch! These will stay nice and fudgy with the addition of a surprise ingredient… sweetened condensed milk! Once you add it to your brownie mix the first time, you’ll always want to bake them that way!
I topped mine with Oreo cookies… feel free to add your own yummy twists like:
- 1/2 cup of nuts (pecans or walnuts)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup coconut
Be sure to keep an eye on them when baking. You want them cooked but not overcooked!
- 1 box of brownie mix , not family sized (plus ingredients required on the box)
- 1/3 cup butter
- 3 oz unsweetened chocolate , chopped
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
- 10 Oreo cookies (optional)
- Frosting (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Prepare brownie mix according to directions (or prepare your own favorite brownie mix).
Combine flour & baking soda, set aside.
Melt butter & chocolate on medium power in the microwave until just about melted. Stir in sugar. Add eggs and stir until mixed. Add flour mixture and stir just until combined.
Pour about 1/3 of the sweetened condensed milk into the brownie mix and stir until combined.
Line the bottom of a 9x9 pan with parchment paper. Pour the brownie mixture into the pan.
Break the Oreo cookies (if using) and scatter over the top of the brownie mix. Pour the remaining sweetened condensed milk over the brownies and bake 25-30 minutes.
Drizzle with chocolate frosting if desired.
