Best Cake Brownies

This recipe caught my eye because it uses a whole can of chocolate syrup! I had searched for years for a brownie everyone likes, and this is it. My husband takes them to work, and they're gone in no time. They cut nicely after cooling a bit, but we don't often wait to dig in.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    about 3 dozen


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can (16 ounces) chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup miniature marshmallows


  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in chocolate syrup and vanilla. Stir in flour.
  • Spread into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20-25 minutes (top of brownie will appear wet). Cool on a wire rack 15-20 minutes.
  • For glaze, in a saucepan, combine sugar, butter and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate chips and marshmallows until melted. Pour over brownies, spreading evenly. Refrigerate 5 minutes before cutting.

    I needed a brownie recipe for Easter that could feed a crowd, yet was easy and delicious. I gave this a try and I'm sure glad I did! This is easy, moist, and tastes incredible. The only addition I made was adding 1 1/2 cups of chopped walnuts to the mix for added flavor. It disappeared in minutes.

    The co-workers fell upon this one like a pack of starving wolves. Brought the pan of brownies in at 8:00 AM and they were all gone within 45 minutes.
