Switch The Oil And Water With Coffee And Butter For More Robust Boxed Brownies
Most boxed brownie mixes call for oil and water in the batter, but if you swap these out for butter and coffee, you can make brownies that taste a little closer to homemade.
Replace the oil and water with brewed coffee and melted butter at a 1:1 ratio. The coffee will make the brownies taste even more chocolatey, since it enhances cocoa flavors.
Meanwhile, the butter will make the brownies richer and fudgier than oil can. You can enhance your brownie mix even more by adding chocolate chips or colorful M&Ms.
You could also add your favorite type of nut for a brownie with some extra crunch, or a dash of vanilla extract to balance out the bitterness of the chocolate.
