These brownies are too good and too easy to taste like “mix” anything; they’re really rich and chocolatey! I added 2 cups of nuts to mine, and ½ t. of vanilla. Didn’t have a 15- x 10- x 1 pan, so I used a 13 x 9 x 2 pan, and just baked a good bit longer until the top sprung back when touched. They turned out great, with my pan it made 24 generous-size brownies. These would be a fun and easy kid’s project, and a great way to involve small children who like to “help out” with the cooking.

These were the best brownies I have ever made. I usually do the box mix thing, but no more. Only 3 ingredients, and super easy to make, does it get any easier than that? Oh, and I fogot to mention, I served them to my grandparents, and 3 of their guests, and I had to give the recipe out to each one of them. I will definately be making these again, but I'm not sharing next time!

Yummy! I gave this recipe to a co-worker of mine, and she brought a batch to work the next day. Everyone was asking her for the recipe!

Mirj - you should really publish your recipes - never fails when I need a good and easy recipe yours is bound to turn up in the highly rated section! I used soy milk instead of regular milk to keep it Parve, and still turned out super-moist and fudgey. They disappeared even quicker than it took to make! Thanks sooooo much Mirj!

There Grrrrreat! I loved them. They hit spot(a need for chocolate)! I thought they were in between a brownie/cake texture. I used 1 cup of chocolate chips. I would definately make this again. I have thought about next time using yellow cake mix and vanilla pudding and chocolate chips...mmm.! Now....after making these several times, I thought I would try something different and what I did is used yellow cake mix and vanilla pudding instead of chocolate cake mix and pudding...I would not recommend doing this, it didnt come out as good and the chocolate way. I thought I would just let anyone know in case they were considering doing the same..

Yummy, yummy. My son claims these are the best brownies I've ever made - they sure were the easiest. Great recipe to make when one's in a hurry.

I just made it. It's good, not great, and it's more of a cake than brownies. I could taste the pudding, and the texture is far from real brownies (too spongy)from luck of moist. If next time I want to make brownies I'll use my old recipe. Lesson learned, short cuts are not always a good thing. However, if you don't have eggs for the cake, but find an instant pudding mix in your pantry, it will make a very good substitute. Happy baking!

Hard to find a brownie one doesn't like, and the simplicity of this recipe does not detract from the chocolate surge you expect from a brownie. Great potluck recipe! Thanks!

Mirj, These are the exact same brownies I make, so I know how good these are. I use chocolate cake mixes w/pudding already in the cake mix; plus still adding a boxed pudding mix as well. I've even made these brownies using a Red Devil's Food Cake Mix, as well as a boxed Chocolate Cake mix that already had mini chocolate chips in it; plus I still add the (12 oz.) pkg. of the chocolate chips. I only bake mine for 20 minutes, so they don't burn. The only thing I don't do, is sprinkle on the confectioners' sugar. These indeed are good, quick, and so easy to prepare.

We LOVE this recipe! It's perfect for those last minute occasions when you need a yummy dessert fast and don't want to run to the store! I made them with my pre-teen niece and she loved how easy they were to make. I did find that they needed a bit more time to bake though. Our first batch was very doughy in the center (but still delicious!)
