A very moist and delicious brownie. Using German chocolate cake mix as a basis for the recipe, makes it virtually foolproof.

Very very good! I made two changes to the recipe: I added 1/4 cup of milk and about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. I baked them for 25 minutes and they were perfect - moist and chewy in the middle with a slight crunch at the edges. Definitely something I'll do again! Read More

Yuck! My fiance and I did not like these. I guess we aren't German chocolate fans. I used this recipe to use up a Duncan Hines German Chocolate Cake mix. It took about 25 minutes for the brownies to cook. I will not be making these again and will stick to the brownie mix for now. Read More

After reading other comments I added 1 cup sour cream and after sreading the mix in the pan I pressed 1/2 cup choc chips into the top of the batter. cooked 25 min and were perfect. Don't expect a real dense bar but very good with or without the traditional coconut-pecan frosting. Read More

I've been looking for a way to make easy brownies from cake mix since all of the brownie mixes have hydrogenated oils. Sure enough this recipe w/ Devil's Food cake mix was excellent! (I substituted walnuts for chocolate chips and used egg whites instead of eggs.) YUM! Read More

I made this recipe using a super moist yellow cake mix and chocolate chips in place of nuts. A definite keeper. Read More

This was just fair. It wasn't brownie-like at all; just like thin cake. We wanted to make brownie fudge sundaes but didn't have the ingredients for scratch brownies or a mix. I used a chocolate cake mix instead of the german chocolate that was called for. The kids liked them. My husband and I thought they were just passable. I won't make them again. Read More

These were fast but powdery instead of moist. I will stick to my from scratch recipe instead. Read More

i will save this recipe as a base recipe but there was not enough liquid in the recipe-it was too thick like tar-the second time i tried this I added a 1/2 cup water and this seemed to do the trick. Thanks for the brownie recipe. It's nice to have cake mix recipes that are quick and easy for last minute events. Read More
