Triple Fudge Brownies

When you're in a hurry to make dessert, here's a "mix of mixes" that's so convenient and quick. The result is a big pan of very rich, fudgy brownies. Friends who ask me for the recipe are amazed that it's so easy. —Denise Nebel, Wayland, Iowa

    If you love chocolate, this recipe is for you! I did make a few changes to the recipe, however. I baked mine in a greased 8 inch skillet for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees. This gave the brownies a cake-like thickness, but still had a moist and fudgy center. I also added a tablespoon of medium roast coffee to the batter to enhance the chocolate flavor. My kids loved this recipe, and I will definitely make it again!

    Love that this is so easy with minimal ingredients. It’s good, but is it the best brownie ever? Not even close. Texturewise, it’s a cross between snack cake and brownie. Tastewise, it doesn’t have a rich chocolate taste even though I used chocolate fudge pudding and chocolate fudge cake mix. I plan to make a fudge buttercream or ganache topping, which will add to the taste. I might make this again to serve at a family gathering.

    Very good. Not really a brownie (I just call it snack cake). It is so easy to whip up & serve guests. I do use the pudding mix you cook first. Don't know if that makes a difference, but it's a family favorite.

    Extremely easy! This is pretty tasty, but the name "brownie" doesn't fit. The texture is soft (we love fudgy brownies!), but a bit spongy rather than fudgy and dense. You can also taste the pudding. Easy chocolate pudding bars would be a more fitting name.

    These ended up very gooey and moist, couldn't hardly pick one up to eat it. They were also very sticky. The flavor was ok, but I won't make them again.

    Try this recipe with spice cake, butterscotch pudding and butterscotch chips. Very good. Also, use one cup chopped nuts and one cup chips and try peppermint or peanut butter chips for a different flavor.
