Recently, I searched, “How to make boxed brownies better” and came across a simple hack that I’ve since coined as my “Crack Brownies”.
That hack has since become one of my favorite family 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?
They are positively sinful.
*UPDATE: Since originally posting this recipe in 2019, it has gone viral on Pinterest several times.
And I totally get why they keep going viral, they’re SO easy to make and every single person who tried them LOVES them!
They are officially the best brownies I have ever tasted.
And probably the easiest too. They’re basically just poke brownies topped with sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips.
I dare you to try them and tell me otherwise. Hint… You won’t!!
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?!

CRACK BROWNIES RECIPE NOTES:
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.
Top these crack brownies 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!
If you have a Christmas party coming up, consider giving this delicious dessert a try!
