Customize Your Starbucks Brownie Order With A Couple Simple Additions

When it comes to making the most delectable off-menu treats, Starbucks baristas know best. Not only does the secret menu contain creative libations — like the discontinued mango black tea lemonade and a Blackberry Cobbler Frappuccino – but baristas have also come up with the tastiest tips on how to elevate the chain's food items. You won't want to miss their hack for a next-level brownie via Insider: Order a double chocolate brownie toasted, with whipped cream and a mocha drizzle.

The brownie's chunks of semisweet chocolate will get all gooey in the oven, and the fluffy whipped cream and rich mocha drizzle transform the treat into a drool-worthy dessert. You may have to order it in-person at stores because the app and website don't allow for all the extra customizations. We'd recommend getting a plate and fork too, since the melty chunks and sauce make it a little difficult to eat on the go.

Plus, sitting down to eat this dessert is a whole experience. If you just want a warmed-up brownie, however, simply select "Warmed" on the app or website when ordering the double chocolate brownie.

A decadent brownie dessert

Of course, now that you know you can add toppings to a Starbucks brownie, feel free to let your imagination run wild. In theory, you can try requesting any of the chain's sauces to drizzle on top, including caramel, cinnamon dolce, hazelnut, peppermint, raspberry, and toffee nut. If you're looking for further ways to jazz up your dessert, try ordering it with caramel crunch, cookie crumble, or salted brown butter toppings, or a dash of cinnamon dolce sprinkles.

After a little experimentation, you may nail down your favorite combo, just like one Reddit user did with their go-to Starbucks creation: a warmed brownie with caramel drizzle, mocha drizzle, whipped cream, and a salt topping. Instead of a plate, you can also try asking for it in a venti cup so you can mix everything up together. If you tend to prefer the crispier brownies on the edge of the pan, another Reddit commenter recommends ordering your brownie close to when the store closes, so you get one that's a little firmer after sitting out all day.

However creative you get, make sure not to ask a barista to throw a brownie in the blender for any brownie batter-inspired drink concoctions. The only food that employees are allowed to incorporate into beverages is fruit, so they'll likely deny your request.
