Chocolate Brownies With Raisins

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

For this recipe I've used any number of brownie mixes, but have found that one of the best is Ghirardelli Chocolate 'Triple Chocolate Brownies' mix. Their big 6-lb 4-oz box comes with 5 pouches of mix. Sometimes instead of the extra cup of chocolate chips, I will dice up & add 8-10 chocolate-orange sticks!! The brownies from this recipe are very moist & very richly delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 23 cup water
  • 23 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 (20 ounce) envelopes brownie mix, see description above
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dark raisin
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Lightly spray a 13"x9" glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a medium bowl, blend water, oil & eggs, then add brownie mix, chocolate chips [& nuts, if desired]. Stir until moistened.
  4. Pour into prepared baking dish & spread evenly.
  5. Bake 50 minutes. Do not overbake. Brownies will appear underbaked but will cool to doneness.
  6. Cool completely before cutting with a plastic knife. Store in a tightly covered container.

These are fantastic! I found the large 6 pound box of Ghirardelli Brownie mix at Costco. I didn't have walnuts so I used slivered almonds, which I toasted. The chocolate, almonds,and raisins together, tasted like a Cadbury Fruit and Nut chocolate bar which happens to be one of my favorites. A keeper for sure! Thanks for sharing!

Yum! Easy to make, great taste. Before I found this recipe, I didn't know that Ghirardelli made a brownie mix. My store didn't carry the triple chocolate, but I did use their double chocolate and it's really good. I think their walnut brownie mix would also be good in this too for those of us who like lots of nuts in our brownies. Thanks for sharing.
