    I use to make brownies from Duncan Hines cake mix. I think it was the butter recipe one. Now I can't remember how to make it. THe recipe was on the box for years & I guess I never saved one. I think it was 2 eggs & 1 stick of melted butter , cup of chocolate chips & 1 to 2 cups of minature marshmallows. Bake. Well I just made some & I used the regular mix & to me they don't taste good. Anybody remember.

    the regular size of Libby's pumpkin not mix. Maybe 16 oz- not sure of the amount. Sorry. You can also mix one can of diet soda (we like diet cherry coke) and a box of cake mix (the lower sugar chocolate one) and 1/4 cup egg whites (not necessary but it helps hold the cake together) bake 350 in 9X13 pan for around 30 minutes! Very good and easy.

    I have never used the cake mix for brownies - sounds like it would be good. Have you tried the website? They do have a great recipe on the dark chocolate fudge cake mix for making chocolate chocolate chip cookies and they are the bomb!!! Good luck - hope you find your recipe!

    I printed the recipe up and think you could use ANY flavor cake mix and then do the cream cheese thing on it before baking. MMMMM..I am not always ready for chocolate..I know that sounds weird but that's just me...

    Sounds really good! I hope someone can find the recipe for you. My kids love brownies! This sounds really easy and I LOVE easy. With four kids, that's about all I can do. However, my kids are older now so that's not as important as it once was. But I still love easy cause it gives me more time to do other things ...like Quilt!

    I make brownies from a brownie mix and 1 (15 oz) can of black beans run thru the blender liquid and all. Stir into mix and bake in greased pan. Good and higher in fiber. Yes just black beans and the brownie mix. Try it.

    This sounds good. Are you saying don't add the eggs, oil & water as directed on the mix?

    Yes,
    No eggs no oil and only the can of beans with the liquid and the brownie mix. A lot less calories and nice and moist.

    I got this recipe from this Board:

    1 family size Duncan Hines Fudgy Brownies
    1/2 cup Nutella spread

    Mix with eggs & water as directed, adding the Nutella. Bake at 350 for 25 - 30 mins. Important not to overbake these brownies.

    I made these for Quilt Guild yesterday and they were a big hit

    I want to share a tip that a friend passed on to me. When making brownies, line the pan with foil and spray the foil with non stick cooking spray. When they cool a little you can lift it right out of the pan. Besides not having to wash a pan, the best part is that the edges and corners are as soft as the middle of the brownies. :)
