Recently, I searched, “How to make boxed brownies better” and came across a simple hack. That hack has since become one of my favorite dessert recipes, especially for the holidays.
I’ve inherited the title of “Family Fudge Maker” from my mawmaw and it’s definitely a Christmas must-have for most of my family members on my mom’s side. Mawmaw’s fudge is so decadent.
Dare I say that I like these brownies even better?

Mawmaw’s fudge is so decadent. Dare I say that I like these brownies even better? They are positively sinful.
A lot of desserts call for a ton of ingredients, multiple steps and a lot of time invested.
That’s another reason why I love this recipe so much, it’s so simple that it’s almost impossible to mess them up.
This recipe has now gone viral on Pinterest multiple times and with good reason…
They really are THAT GOOD, y’all.
If you haven’t made these sinful brownies yet, then what the heck are you waiting for?!
baking must haves
ingredients for brownies (listed on box)
1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk (only brand I use)
Prepare and bake brownies according to instructions on box. Once baked (toothpick should come out clean!) poke holes throughout baked brownies with a knife. While brownies are hot, pour 1/2 a can of sweetened condensed milk over brownies. Use a spatula to spread milk evenly. Sprinkle 1/2 a bag of milk chocolate chips on top.
You can use any combination of brownies and chips that you want. I’ve made several batches now and my favorite combination has been dark chocolate brownies with milk chocolate chips. They melted into the most incredible ooey gooey dessert I’ve ever tasted. Topped with ice cream, they are the closest thing your tastebuds will get to heaven.
If you don’t like gooey brownies, then go with a traditional brownie mix (like pictured above) and follow the instructions for cake-like brownies. Personally, I don’t think this version comes anywhere near close to the gooey version, but my hubby prefers this style. To each your own!
This recipe has gone viral on Pinterest and this blog post itself has been shared over 90,000 times! It’s clearly a favorite among my readers.
Crack brownies are always a crowd pleaser. If you have a dinner party or really any event coming up, add this dessert to your menu. It’ll be a requested recipe moving forward, I promise!
