How to doctor brownie mix
Ready for this extra special secret ingredient? Drum roll please…..
Trust me on this. Just doctoring the box of brownie mix with 3 tablespoons of molasses is going to be the best thing that has happened to your brownie baking game.
I got the inspiration to try this after making these Chewy Molasses Cookies. The recipe said that the molasses help keep the cookies super moist and chewy. That’s when I had that ‘light bulb’ moment…Maybe, if I add molasses to my brownie mix it will do the same thing to my brownies?
And oh boy was it just the right trick!
Molasses in brownies
Molasses is an incredible ingredient to add to a baking recipe, especially one that’s chocolate. By adding molasses you’re adding extra moisture with will make the baked goodie chewy and moist.
Even though molasses is sugar, it’s deep caramel flavor doesn’t add too much sweetness to the taste. Instead of making the brownies taste sweeter it’s enhancing the flavor of the chocolate making that taste deeper and richer.
Here’s what you need!
- Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix, this is the one called for in the recipe
So easy right? Just 5 ingredients and you’re ready to bake. That’s the beauty of a doctored brownie mix recipe. It means the complexity of baking is removed. You can make these and enjoy the fudgy brownie you’ve always wanted!
