Doctored Boxed Brownies

The easiest way to make super fudgy, incredibly moist and dense brownies. Doctored boxed brownies means even non-bakers can bake an irresistible brownie. The simple addition of molasses means more moisture, deeper flavor, and the fudge brownie consistency.


-1 box of dark chocolate brownie mix
-Oil, water, and egg as called for on fudge brownie box (you need there to be the instructions that call for 1/4 cup water, 1/2 vegetable oil, and 2 eggs! Important to get the right consistency)
-3 tablespoons molasses


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×9 baking dish with cooking spray. 2. Prepare the brownie batter as called for on the package with the oil, water, and eggs. Stir to combine. Stir in the 3 tablespoons of molasses. 3. Bake for 33-35 minutes. Let cool before cutting, then serve and enjoy!


Let these cool before cutting. Because these are moist and fudgy they are soft after the come out of the oven. Using a plastic knife helps in the cutting so that you’re not breaking them apart as you cut with a metal knife.
