Dolly Parton’s got a new release! No, we’re not talking about a new album. We’re talking about a brand new line of baking mixes with Duncan Hines.

In 2022, Dolly launched a collection of cake mixes and frostings with the company, but this year she’s expanding her horizons with more sweet mixes and some savory ones too.

“I’m really excited to launch more baking mixes steeped in my southern roots,” says Dolly.

For the first time, Dolly and Duncan Hines are releasing savory mixes. You’ll be able to find boxes of buttermilk biscuits and cornbread mix on store shelves.

“We always had cornbread and biscuits at our house,” Dolly tells Taste of Home. “You can serve them with anything you might be eating.”

At Dolly’s house, that might be chicken and dumplings. “I make the best chicken and dumplings in the whole family,” she says. 

Other Parton favorites include hickory-grilled ham, five-layer casserole and pecan chicken salad.

More Southern Sweets from Duncan Hines

When it comes to desserts, Dolly tells Taste of Home, “I lean more towards chocolate.” Dolly’s ideal birthday cake is a chocolate confection covered in fudge icing.

For everyday treats, though, “I’d rather have a mix for brownies,” she says.

That’s where her two new chocolaty treats come in: Dolly Parton’s Caramel Turtle Brownie Mix and Dolly Parton’s Fabulously Fudgy Brownie Mix. Our Test Kitchen already counts Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix among their favorites.

When you can snag a box of these mixes, be sure to make them Dolly style—that means extra fudgy. I’m more of a fudgy fan,” she says. “I love gravies, sauces, icings and all that. I can’t get enough goo!”

Also, try Dolly Parton’s buttermilk biscuits which are easy to make, soft, and tender.

Dolly’s new line of cornbread, biscuit and brownie mixes is rolling out in grocery stores now. You’ll find them in the baking aisle right alongside her other cake mixes and canned frostings.

However, if you want the complete collection plus a few extra goodies, you can head over to the Duncan Hines shop. Starting Feb. 8, you can snag a package with the new line of products and Dolly kitchen gear including a spatula and tea towel. Members of Duncan Hines’ baking community will get early access on Feb. 1.

There’s a limited number of these kits available, so you’ll have to act fast to add the “What Would Dolly Do?” spatula to your collection.
