How I Make Boxed Brownies Moist & Chewy
While homemade brownies are great, using a box mix is not only easy, but gives you consistent and delicious results.
Why Boxed Brownies?
If your boxed brownie mix leaves something to be desired, use these simple tips to make sure they're moist and chewy.
If your mix calls for two eggs, use one instead. By using less eggs, your brownies will be denser and chewier. Omitting egg whites can also work.
Instead of using oil, go with unsalted melted butter. Melted butter will produce a richer and chewier brownie.
For extra chewy brownies, under-bake them by about five minutes. Just a few minutes is enough to prevent your brownies from losing their chewiness.
The Right Pan
Over-baking in a darky, heavy pan is a surefire way to overcook your brownies. Instead, opt for a glass or light metal pan.
