As you probably know, I am a big fan of semi-homemade recipes. I love saving time by taking a basic cake mix, or in this case a brownie mix, and jazzing it up to be something that my family and friends will think I slaved over in the kitchen for hours.

I do love baking from scratch, but time doesn’t always permit, and quite honestly these semi-homemade goodies are always just as well received.

  • I love semi homemade recipes too, but when it comes to brownies most people want a brownie to taste like the box. Well, my homemade brownies never do. They are great, just not box brownies so I finally got over it and whenever I make browines I use the box kind. No big deal for me anymore. The time I save is great and it gives me time to focus on other scratch baking.
    These are cute by the way.

  • I am hungry looking at this recipe. The only thing I’d do is add coffee to the mix becuse I often find mixes are too sweet.

  • These sound and look amazing and I have everything here to make them. Oh my grand kids are going to love them.

  • These Sweetheart Brownies are so Delicious looking. They are displayed so pretty too. I love baking and trying different variations of cookie, Brownie, fudge, Cakes etc. This is a recipe I will try ..Thankyou for posting. :0) Have a Great Day! I will try to Pin this recipe for myself!!

  • Hi .. Just wondering what size pan is this recipe for 8 or 9 inch pan or 9 by 13 pan .. these look wonderful .. can’t wait to make them. Thanks so much 🙂 <3

    • We used an 8 inch square pan and they turned out nice and thick. With the additional layers of frosting and chocolate, you could easily get away with a 9×13 pan for more brownies. Enjoy!
