These brownies are so easy because they are start with a cake mix! I've tried making brownies before with a cake mix, but I've never had much luck until finding this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 ounce) package German chocolate cake mix
  • 13 cup milk
  • 14 cup butter or 14 cup margarine, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spray a 13X9-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, milk, butter, and eggs with an electric mixer.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts (batter will be VERY thick).
  5. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan.
  6. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until brownies are done.

I don't have a lot of experience making brownies from a cake mix but this is delicious. I think I'll use a bigger pan next time (little thick for personal preference) and I also had to add a splash more milk to get it to do anything...but it was really good and when I don't have 3 eggs, I'll gladly use this recipe instead!

These were great considering they were thrown together so quickly! As another reviewer stated, I too needed more milk to incorporate all of the dry ingredients. I would say I added 2-3 more tablespoons of milk. All in all, this is a good, quick recipe for dessert in a pinch and I am sure I will make it again! Thx for posting Kim!
