Tips For The Best Ghirardelli Brownies

Here are a few basic tips and tricks for making the best batch of Ghirardelli brownies from a mix.

  • Be careful not to overbake. Brownies fresh from the oven may appear underbaked but will continue to cook and set while they cool. Learn how to tell when brownies are done.
  • If you like thicker brownies, modify the recipe to use 2 tablespoons of water, 1/3 cup vegetable oil and 2 eggs.
  • If you are in a high altitude area, modify the recipe by adding a 1/4 cup all-purpose flour and an extra 2 tablespoons of water.
  • If you’re out of eggs or prefer not to use them, check out these tips on the best egg substitutes for brownies.

Mix-Ins For Ghirardelli Brownies

Brownies can be made even better with creative and delicious mix-ins. Here are some of our personal favorites.

Peanut Butter Cups
There’s nothing better than the classic combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Simply chop up some peanut butter cups and add them to your brownie batter before baking. You’ll end up with peanut butter cups in every bite.

Oreos
Add a layer of Oreos to the bottom of your pan before adding the brownie batter on top. The cookies will get nice and soft as they bake, making for a delicious treat. You can also chop the cookies and add them right to the batter.

M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces
If you’re looking for a little bit of color in your life, then add some M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces to your brownies. Mix them into the batter or sprinkle them on top before baking. Either way, you’ll end up with a delicious and colorful treat.

Nuts
Nuts are a great way to add some crunch to your brownies. You can use any kind of nut you like, but pecans or walnuts work especially well. Just be sure to chop them up into small pieces so they don’t overpower the flavor of the brownies.

Chocolate Chips
Another classic add-in, chocolate chips are always a good idea. They’ll melt into the batter as it bakes, giving you rich and gooey chocolate brownies that are out of this world. Experiment with milk, semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips. White chocolate chips, butterscotch, caramel or mint chips are delicious additions too.
