Tips

Fudgy Chewy Brownies

Fudgy Chewy Brownies

To make decadent, chewy brownies, use 2 boxes of mix for one 9x13 pan. Mix together with 1 cup oil, 1/4 cup water, 4 eggs, 1 cup chocolate chips. Put in 9 x 13 pan greased on bottom only. Bake for 47 minutes at 325 (or 300 for dark / nonstick pan). Cool, then cut with a plastic knife. Rave reviews every time!


Prevent Carry-Over Cooking

Prevent Carry-Over Cooking

To keep chewy cookies from over baking always remove the cookies from the baking pan as soon as possible to prevent continued cooking from the heat of the pan. This is called “carry over cooking”. Duncan Hines says “use your baking parchment sheets or non-stick foil as a trick to remove all the cookies at once”. Carefully pick up the paper or non-stick foil from opposite corners; bottom left and top right. Lift and transfer to a flat surface. Lifting from opposite corners will prevent the paper from folding in the middle which would cause the cookies to fall off of the paper.
