Easy 4 Ingredient Fudge Brownies
With the holidays among us, there will be holiday parties, treats for neighbors and more. This fudge brownie recipe is one that my mom introduced me to years ago. I always get tons of compliments anywhere we go and they are SO incredibly good. You can frost them for the ultimate chocolate experience, but they are just as tasty without the frosting. They feed a large crowd since they are made in a cookie sheet, which is a plus when taking them to holiday parties. Best of all, you can have them in and out in less than a half hour!

    I never would have thought to make brownies with a cake mix. I’d put nuts in mine instead of the chocolate chips. Yum!

    this has been my go to need a quick dessert to make recipe for years now! Amazing aren’t they? I love that it makes the big pan of them. I never frost them as I think that would be way too much as they are pretty rich and chocolately non frosted. we have experimented and used other type chocolate chips too..peanutbutter, mint etc.

      Ooh – I bet they are good with other types of chips in them! My mom usually frosts hers and they are so so good. Granted, you can’t eat more than one, but they are still way good.

    Are they cake like b/c they are made with the cake mix? I’m a big fan of fudge like brownies but these look so delish!

      The pudding makes them a LOT more like brownies. They are super moist and much more like a brownie than cake.

    These look so good! I’ve never made brownies with a cake mix before, I usually just use the boxed brownie mixes.
