How to make better than boxed brownies?

Here are a few of the key ingredients to perfecting that fudge, moist, and crispy on the edge brownies:

  • Powdered Sugar (because it typically contains cornstarch which helps with the texture)
  • Eggs (don't try any vegan alternatives because this is key to helping them rise)
  • Water
  • Olive Oil (butter will make the brownies too gooey and oily)

  • Also!! It is better to underbake the brownies, rather than overbake them so they become dry and cake-like.

Can I make better than boxed brownies vegan?

In most cases, I would give you all tips on vegan substitutes. But unfortunately, the eggs play a vital part in today's recipe.

You'll probably notice that the recipe does not call for any baking powder nor baking soda, so beating those eggs until creamy is what'll help the brownies to rise naturally!

How to store leftover brownies?

Store any leftover brownies in an air-tight container and leave on the counter for up to 3 days, or the fridge up to 5 days. They will become more fudge as time goes on, but still delicious!

Can I freeze the brownies to make ahead?

Absolutely! I actually have half a batch of these same brownies in my freezer now for the Thanksgiving week ahead of us. It makes for the perfect sweet treat during any chaotic weekday, because you just need to let it thaw in the fridge or on the ocunter until your desired preference.

Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness! ’till next time!
