HOW TO MAKE THIS DR PEPPER BROWNIES RECIPE

STEP ONE: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9 x 9 baking dish with parchment paper.

PRO TIP: Lining the pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil will allow you to lift the entire baked brownies out of the pan for easier cutting once cooled. You can also grease the pan instead if you would prefer.

STEP TWO: In a large bowl, combine the box of brownie mix, eggs, vegetable oil, Dr. Pepper, semi-sweet chocolate chips and vanilla extract. Mix brownie batter well.

PRO TIP: The cake mix box will say to add eggs, water, milk or oil. We don’t need to do that as we’re using Dr Pepper instead with the dry mix.

PRO TIP: Here’s a fabulous baker’s secret, coating the chocolate chips in flour before folding them into the batter will prevent them from sinking to the bottom of your brownies. They will remain suspended in the batter while baking.

STEP THREE: Pour batter into the prepared pan.

STEP FOUR: Bake at 350°F for 32 minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost clean.

STEP FIVE: Let brownies cool.

STEP SIX: Lift the cooled brownies out of the pan using the sides of the parchment paper. Cut into squares before serving.

HOW TO SERVE

A scoop of vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of hot fudge sauce and a dollop of whipped cream is just the right way to finish off this perfect brownie recipe. Dr. Pepper adds an incredible flavor that you just can’t beat. Serve this decadent treat with our iced tea, raspberry iced tea, sweet peach iced tea, or our southern strawberry sweet tea on the side to wash it all down.

STORAGE

AT ROOM TEMPERATURE: Store cut brownie squares in an airtight container at room temperature, they’re best eaten within 1 to 2 days.

IN THE FREEZER: A whole pan’s worth of this Dr. Pepper brownies recipe, uncut and well wrapped in plastic, will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months. Cut into squares before serving.

FAQ

Can I use Diet Dr. Pepper for this recipe?

We don’t recommend using the diet version of Dr. Pepper as it will change the flavor of the brownies.

Can I use my own homemade brownies recipe for this recipe?

The boxed brownie mix makes this recipe very easy but if you prefer to make your own brownies, you can. Dr. Pepper replaces the water in the boxed brownie mix so make sure you replace an equivalent liquid in your homemade brownies with Dr. Pepper.

Do I have to refrigerate these brownies?

You can store your brownies on the counter for 1-2 days or in the freezer for 3 months.

    If I used a 13×9 box mix do I double everything? My Publix right now is only offering 13×9. Iā€™m doing chemo and shop by delivery.

    Thanks!
