This recipe post tests Betty Crocker's Salted Caramel Brownie mix and Duncan Hines Devil's Food Chocolate Cake mix. Both batches came out great! Duncan Hines also makes a Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix and Dark Chocolate brownie mix that are perfect for this recipe!
Here with the differences:
  • Betty Crocker's brownie mix was more of a sticky batter and Duncan Hines was a thicker fudgy dough. Duncan Hines was easier to work with.
  • The Betty Crocker batch spread much farther on the baking sheet when it was in the oven than Duncan Hines, but both came out soft and chewy.
Use whatever chocolate mix you have-the end result is delicious!
