This entry will be for Snickers lovers out there. With its combination of spongy brownies with the unique flavors of Snickers, you won’t have a dull time with this dessert.
The main components for this recipe are instant brownie mix, espresso powder for the extra bitterness, and caramel bits to recreate the taste of Snickers. Of course, you can add roasted peanuts, so the nuttiness is even more apparent.
The first thing to do is mix the brownies with eggs, oil, and espresso powder. When the batter is runny enough, pour it into a baking tray and drizzle the melted caramel sauce. The contrast between the light caramel and dark brownie improves the aesthetic.
Finally, sprinkle the chopped peanuts, and you can start the baking process. The texture of the brownies is chewy, with the bitterness and the sweetness blending well together.

While plain brownies are delicious, there is no reason not to improve the dessert by adding a new twist to the recipe. This section introduces you to a unique snack called caramel coconut Samoa brownies.
Although this delicacy doesn’t come from the island of Samoa, the use of shredded coconut is an inspiration from Polynesian cuisine. The ingredient list also suggests getting brownie mix as you don’t have to spend much time making things from scratch.
When you finally have the brownies ready with a creamy and thick chocolate sauce, sprinkle the toasted coconut bits and drizzle the caramel sauce on top. The caramel will add a lot of richness to the brownies, while the crunchy coconut bits contrast with the soft brownies.

The coming of April signals another great Easter egg hunt. However, using the same type of eggs seems too repetitive and almost boring. If you want to change the tradition, let me show you an outstanding alternative called Easter egg brownie bites.
For the brownie batter, you can still make it from different ingredients, or you can forgo that step by buying a premade mix. Combine the brownie mix with oil, eggs, and water. Next, pour the batter into a muffin pan. Add mini Easter eggs into each of the cups and start baking.
The batter will harden in the oven and hold the eggs in place. Once you have finished, just cool the brownies and enjoy the treats. The Easter eggs come with a chocolate core that oozes perfection. Of course, you also have the sponginess of the brownies to make everything better.

The Mexican orange chili brownies might do the trick for something more exotic to your taste buds. The way this recipe combines the characteristics of Mexican cuisine with the classic American snack is out of this world.
The preparation includes making brownies from a pre-packaged mix. Once you have the batter, add orange oil and chopped pecans. The orange oil provides a pleasant tang that you might think it’s weird, but it is here to work with the sweetness of the brownies.
Bake until the brownies are ready. Before you serve, sprinkle some chili seasoning on the top of the dessert. The brownies have a strange blend of savory and sweet flavors, with a heavy dose of spiciness. The pecans offer the signature crunchy when you bite into the brownies.

For something as simple as pies, you would be surprised at how a slight change in presentation can improve the taste to a higher degree. If you manage to recreate this three-layer brownie pie, it will be your favorite dessert forever.
The three layers come from three ingredients with different characteristics. From the bottom layer, the Oreo pie crust has a crumbly texture. The middle layer comes from cookie dough to hold the pie together.
And last but not least, the brownie mix forms a nice layer on top, which is soft and chewy. The blend of three different styles of chocolatey flavor will provide an exciting experience. The texture is spongy on top but more crusty at the bottom.

Although the concept of a dump cake might seem rustic, you can feel assured that the flavors are top-notch. As the name suggests, the preparation is just dumping most of the ingredients into one single tray, so there’s no need for decoration.
This version of dump cake doesn’t require making the brownie batter from scratch; just use a premade mix and fold it in with a stick of butter. The result is a crumbly layer that acts as a “lid” for the dump cake, and it will taste incredibly delicious.
And for the filling, you combine canned cherry with cherry pie filling. The cherry-based components will stay under the layer of brownie dough, so they will remain moist even after baking. You can cool the dump cake down and serve it with a scoop of ice cream.

If this dessert doesn’t conquer you with taste alone, it will do it with one of the best designs you will ever see. The brightly colored cream cheese will be much more vibrant against the backdrop of the tasty-looking brownie base.
The main ingredients for this dessert are brownie mix, cream cheese, and vanilla extract. At the start, you must turn the brownie mix into a batter. Remember to reserve a bit of batter to use later. Next, combine the cream cheese with vanilla, egg, and sugar to get a runny mixture.
Combine the cream cheese mixture and the brownie batter into the baking tray. This is when you use a toothpick to design the swirls. The more you move, the better the design will be. The finished product is a sweet and creamy delicacy that delights your entire night.
The way to make cream cheese is much easier than you think.
Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes
While the main focus of a cheese revolves around the top cheesy layer, you can still change the bottom crust to whichever flavors you like. I will show you a particular version of cheesecake with a brownie base in this recipe.
To start with the preparation, you can use an instant brownie mix to make the process faster. Follow the box instructions and form a nice batter at the bottom of the cheesecake mold. The next step is to combine cream cheese, eggs, sugar, and vanilla for the top layer.
The cooking steps are simple but time-consuming since you must bake two layers separately. Doing this will ensure that once you cut open the cake, you can see two distinct brown and yellow portions. The taste is magnificent, with creaminess and richness together.
Total time: 15 minutes
When it comes to dessert, complexity is no match for the simplicity of good old cookies. And lucky for you, I have a simple recipe called brownie cookies that manages to bring out the best of a simple brownie mix.
The core components are the convenient instant mix you can get from a grocery store, butter, eggs, and flour. You should avoid making it runny, or the crumbliness of the cookies will suffer. Add chocolate chips into the mixture since they will enhance the richness.
The last step of the preparation includes scooping the batter into a tray. Ensure each portion is not too significant because the oven’s heat will expand the cookies. When the dessert is ready, you can feel the melted chocolate ooze out from the crusty cookies.
10. Brownie Brittles
Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes
If brownie cookies are not crunchy enough for your taste, let me introduce you to this sweet treat called brownie brittles. For those who don’t know, brittles are a type of dessert that has a complex and dry texture, making the crunchiness even more apparent.
The recipe requires instant brownie mix, eggs, water, and vegetable oil. On the surface, the brownie brittles might not be too different from a regular brownie. However, the key is in the preparation.
Instead of pouring it thick, you spread the brownie batter thinly on the surface of the baking tray. The thinness will help to reduce the moisture inside the brownie and increase the hardness. Before you bake, sprinkle a bit of salt into the batter.
Take it out when you see the batter has hardened inside the oven. The mouthfeel is rather interesting due to the dryness. The salt also adds some depth to the sweet flavor.
Total time: 6 hours (including several hours of freezing and chilling time)
Summer is always a good time to explore the wonderful world of desserts. This section introduces you to a new way of enjoying a cold treat called ice cream brownie cake. Before making it, I must warn you that the cake can be very addicting.
The main components for the cake are brownie mix, ice cream, and hot fudge sauce. Since most brownie mix products have instructions for preparation, you can follow them until you get a soft and spongy cake layer. Next, pour the ice cream on top and let the mixture freeze.
For the fudge, just warm it up and pour it on top of the ice cream cake mix. Put the tray back into the freezer again. The final step is to add the whipped topping so you can have different layers of flavors, from the bitter brownie to the sweet ice cream and the rich fudge.
Total time: 1 hour
When it’s summertime, you’d want to have a suitable dessert to cool yourself down. But eating ice cream is boring after your third bowl. In that case, I want to show you how to make these fantastic brownie ice cream sandwiches.
Since the recipe encourages you to use brownie mix, you don’t have to spend much time making everything from scratch. Just follow the instructions and pour the final batter into the baking tray. Once you put the tray inside the oven, the heat will puff up the brownie.
As for the ice cream portion, you can pour it into another tray and let the ice cream stay in the freezer overnight. The colder the ice cream gets, the easier for you to assemble the sandwich. You just transfer the ice cream sheet between two sheets of brownie.
The final step is to cut it into bite-sized rectangles. The result is a fantastic dessert that is sweet, bitter, and rich.
The brownie ice cream sandwich is an excellent way to treat yourself in the summer.
Total time: 2 hours 18 minutes (With 2 hours of freezing time)
Waffles and ice cream are not strangers to people who love desserts. However, what if there were a way to combine both delicacies into one ultimate sweet treat? If you’re curious, let me introduce you to this beautiful brownie waffle and ice cream.
This recipe is similar to an ice cream sandwich, but it uses brownies instead of bread buns. You can make your brownie mix or buy a box from the nearest supermarket. Form a batter and pour it into a waffle maker.
When you see that the batter has hardened into a proper waffle, take it out and make another one. The contrast between the bitter brownie waffle and the sweet vanilla ice cream is delightful. This dish is even better after you refrigerate it for around two hours.
14. Slutty Brownies
Total time: 45 minutes
The name of this dessert might raise a few eyebrows, but I can assure you that the taste is worth it. Instead of the usual unfilled brownie, this recipe puts a signature spin on the recipe with the delicious Oreo cores.
With this delicacy, you need three ingredients: chocolate cookie dough, brownie mix, and Oreos (of course, you can use other sandwich cookies). Spread the dough to cover the portion of the baking tray. The dough forms the crumbly and sweet layer.
Next, place the Oreos on top of the dough before you pour the brownie batter. The brownie layer will act as a cover to keep the creamy core of Oreos from being too dry. The texture of the slutty brownies is quite soft, yet the lower you go, the crustier they become.
15. Buckeye Brownies
Total time: 50 minutes
The buckeye brownies are another exciting interpretation of the traditional brownies. With this delicacy, you can taste more than just the tender and sweet characteristics of brownies since there is also the addition of a peanut butter mixture.
The dessert consists of three distinct layers: the usual brownies, the peanut butter spread, and a thin sheen of melted milk chocolate. To make the brownies, you can get an instant mix to reduce the preparation time.
While waiting for the brownies to bake, combine butter, sugar, and peanut butter until you get a spreadable consistency. Spread that nutty layer on top of the brownies before melting the chocolate chips with butter to get the final layer.
The experience of eating the buckeye brownies is almost heavenly when the sweetness overwhelms your taste buds. The nuttiness from the peanut butter increases the delectability even further.
Total time: 2 hours 15 minutes
Using a box of brownie mix to create pudding might be a strange idea. But once you have a taste of the dessert’s goodness, you won’t regret the decision.
With the help of a crock pot, making brownie pudding will be much easier. The main ingredients are brownie mix, pudding mix, and water. First, combine the brownie mix with vegetable oil, eggs, and water. Cook the mixture in the crock pot slowly.
In the meantime, you can prepare the pudding mix with some milk. The texture should be liquidy, not too runny, or the final product might become too thin. Pour the pudding mixture into the crock pot as well.
When the pudding starts bubbling, you can finally serve it in a bowl. To increase the creaminess of the pudding, you can add whipped cream on top.
Total time: 35 minutes
Pretzels and brownies are two reliable desserts that always taste good after your hearty meals. However, have you tried combining both delicacies into one? That’s right; I will show you how to do just that in this recipe.
The delicacy requires a few core components like brownie mix, caramels, crushed pretzel, and a generous serving of chocolate chips. The most important thing is to make the brownies based on the instructions on the box. You can add oil and eggs into the brownie mix as well.
While the brownies are cooking, you can prepare the caramel sauce by mixing it with butter and milk to increase the richness. When the brownies are spongy enough, pour the sauce over them and sprinkle the crushed pretzel.
Once everything has cooled down, you will get a nice and decadent dessert. The pretzel bits are salty, which makes an excellent contrast to the sweet caramel topping.
Total time: 1 hour
Despite the exotic-sounding name, the Bundt cake is an entirely American creation based on a European dessert called Gugelhupf. Instead of using only cake batter, you can also add brownie batter to increase the richness of the texture.
You use instant brownie and chocolate cake mix to make the preparation process faster. Combine both powders with eggs, oil, and water until the consistency is right. Pour the mixture into a Bundt pan and let the oven work.
This Bundt cake version includes ganache or chocolate sauce coat the top of the delicacy, which consists of chocolate chips and heavy cream. The creamy sauce makes the spongy cake taste better with its sweetness and smooth texture.
The brownie Bundt cake will drown your taste buds with its chocolatey goodness.
Total time: 27 minutes
If the previous Bundt cake is too large of a serving for you, I can suggest making these little brownie cupcakes. The wonderful chocolatey delights will brighten your day with their tender and creamy texture that you can’t stop eating.
There are two parts to making brownie cupcakes. The first part is the cupcake, combining brownie and fudge mix so you can expect the core to be extra rich. When the cupcakes start to rise in the oven, you can take them out to cool.
The second part lies in the frosting, which adds depth to the flavor of the cupcake. To make the topping, you would fold butter, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, and honey. Use a hand mixer to whip until the frosting doubles in size.
The frosting goes on top of the cupcake. Once you bite into the cupcake, the difference in textures enhances the experience much better.
Total time: 40 minutes
Aside from the chocolate brownie cupcake, I also want to introduce you to another option called the French vanilla brownie cupcake. For this type of cupcake to work, you will need two different dry mixes.
The first is the French vanilla cake mix, which has a fragrant aroma. The cake texture is airy and light, so it doesn’t overwhelm the richer brownie mix.
The second necessary part of this recipe is the brownie mix. The texture of the brownies is more bountiful since the chocolatey taste is overwhelming. However, the sweetness is delightful when you combine it with the cake mix.
The cupcake is unique in that the middle of it contains a layer of vanilla frosting that reduces the intensity of the chocolate. At the same time, the essence of the vanilla can enhance the overall flavor.

Everyone needs a little caffeinated kick once in a while to keep themselves energized. However, drinking coffee can be repetitive and boring, so I suggest this espresso brownie recipe to change your palate.
For starters, get your favorite brownie mix from your local supermarket. Next, follow the instructions on the box and mix the dry brownie powder with eggs, water, and espresso powder. The coffee will enhance the vibrancy of the chocolatey taste.
Finally, you can pour the mixture into a baking tray and toss it in the oven. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips to use the sauce as the topping. The espresso brownies have a rich and bitter note, but the energy boost is worthwhile.

The main ingredients for the delicacy are brownie mix, crack crumbs, and marshmallow fluff. Thanks to the last ingredient, you don’t have to waste time melting down marshmallows. Besides, marshmallow fluff provides the creamy mouth feel as standard marshmallows.
On the other hand, the brownie batter will cover the fluff with a spongy, sweet, and mildly bitter layer. The sponginess goes very well with the runny marshmallow filling. The crack crumbs tie everything nicely with a crusty exterior.
Total time: 52 minutes (including 30 minutes of refrigerating time)

To make the cookie dough, you will need the following ingredients: brownie mix, eggs, chocolate chips, and marshmallows. Combine everything into a single bowl until you form a single dough. Refrigerate for 30 minutes so you can scoop the mixture quickly.
When you scoop, maintain the size because the oven will expand the dough. During the baking process, the chips and marshmallows will melt and bind the cookies together. Once you bite into it, you can feel the crustiness of the dough and the runny chocolate-marshmallow mixture.

For those who don’t know, truffles are a type of confection that originated in France. The standard version of truffles consists of a hardened chocolate core inside a coating of cocoa powder.
There are multiple versions of truffles across Europe and America, but I will show you this unique brownie and cheesecake truffle today. Instead of using a special chocolate glaze for the core, you can use brownies since they will create a spongy texture to the truffle.
The preparation of the brownies is easy since you’ll only need a box of premade mix. Combine the mixture with eggs, oil, and water. Pour the batter into a baking pan and toss it in the oven until the brownies increase in volume.
For the core, you combine the crumble brownies with cream cheese and sugar for extra richness. Form the mixture into balls and refrigerate them. The final step is to dip the balls into melted chocolate, creating a lovely sheen to the truffles.

If you’re curious, let me show you how to make the dessert. First, gather the necessary components like chocolate cake mix, brownie mix, white chocolate ganache, and peppermint extract. You can also get the Bundt pan to shape the cake.
